i’m jealous of kirsten hassenfeld

Now these are the kind of jewels that I hope to get on Valentine’s Day!

I so badly want American artist Kirsten Hassenfeld to hang one of these gorgeous installations from my ceiling! Delicate, light-infused, paper-based mixed media jewels… yes please.

    I’m jealous too. It’s like stained glass and jewels and they won’t shatter. They are just lovely. Oh the color! Oh the light!

    I’m jealous of her too! I’ve been a fan of her work for a while but hadn’t checked out her work in a long time! Thanks for sharing.

    oh good! i’m glad you rediscovered her today : )

    I love those smaller chandeliers! They would never last in my home though… Once my husband tore a beautiful antique paper lantern to shreds trying to kill a wasp with a fly swatter. They sure are gorgeous!

    ha! ok, well keep him away from kirsten’s work then!

    Goodness… these are unreal. After she instals one in your house would you mind sending her over to mine?
