Wind-ohhh Charms

Who wouldn't like charms for their window. I had this great idea to take a beautiful fork and add some bead and a chandelier crystal. What fun to have the light reflecting off the crystals.

I started out with these great forks I found at an estate sale. Cut out the center tines and played with bending the outer one. I didn't care for the look since I was not able to get them some what the same. So in the end I cut all the times off and drilled some holes. Letter punched the word dream on each one. Wire wrapped some seed style beads around the bottom and attached my crystal. These were fun to do. I see myself searching out some more old silverware and having one hanging in each of my windows.
