Description

This is a DIY kit for you to sew together this Octahedron himmeli yourself (you will NOT receive the finished octahedron). "Octahedron" is the geometric term for a 3D shape with 8 equal triangular faces. In this kit you will receive:
* all tubes, precut to the right sizes
* the wire needed to sew them together, and
* the pattern with step-by-step instructions guiding you through the process. (All patterns are my own work and are not to be copied, sold or distributed.)
** if you select the nested mobile option you will also receive brass chain to connect the two sizes of octahedrons together for a nested mobile effect (see 5th product photo).
** the mini hanging ornament option will also come with a ring and brass chain to create the hanging loop.

Tools you'll need:
Craft pliers (see 1st product photo). *These are NOT included in the kit and are not mandatory, but they will be helpful for pulling the wire through the tubes. If you don't have them you could try using tweezers or anything else that can help you grip the wire.

If you'd rather receive a finished product, please check out this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/526584939/geometric-octahedron-himmeli-coffee
Or for the ornament this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/553569914/small-geometric-himmeli-ornaments

If you want the pattern only so you can use your own materials (straws, string, etc) then check out this listing:

DIMENSIONS:
*The mini ornament size will be 4.25" tall x 1.75" wide. It's shown in the last 3 photos.
*The medium octahedron will turn out to be 4.25" tall from tip to tip and 3" wide across the middle square frame. It's shown in product photo 2 above.
*The large octahedron will turn out to be 8" tall from tip to tip and 5.75" wide across the middle square frame. It's shown in product photos 1,2,5 & 6 above.
*The nested mobile option will give you the materials for one of each medium and large size to nest together. It's shown in product photos 3 & 4 above.
Allow yourself 30 minutes to an hour to make each one. Have friends and family help!

If you'd like another size, just ask! We cut the brass ourselves so we'd love to help you customize your perfect kit. *Price may vary slightly for larger sizes.

Also send us a message if you want a quantity of more than one because the shopping cart's combined shipping sometimes calculates too high and we may have better options for you. Please include your zip code so we can look into it. :)

Once you've completed your octahedron, what can you do with it?
-- Let it speak for itself drawing attention on a bookshelf, coffee table or bedside table. Surround it with your other favorite knick-knacks.
-- Mount it to a wall (just hang it on a nail or picture hanger hook) and use it as wall decor.
-- You can even display air plants by letting them sit inside one of the faces (**plants not included)! (*However, we recommend removing the plants from the brass for watering/soaking as water droplets will accelerate brass tarnish. Once they are fully dry, place them back inside.)
-- Attach a string and hang it near a window for a beautiful mobile-like effect.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Care:
Brass and H2O don't get along. Do your best to shield your Himmeli from water or dry any water off ASAP. If you're using it to display an air plant, remove the air plant for soaking and let it dry completely before placing it back inside the himmeli.

The brass has been left unsealed, in its natural beauty, but as a result it may patina and age over time due to natural oxidation of the metal, especially in high-humidity areas. Polish using OOO (extra-fine) grade steel wool, (available from home improvement stores), rubbing the brass very gently back and forth until shiny (and make sure to wear gloves to protect your hands!).

The marble has a polished top surface which inherently tightens the pores in the natural stone reducing the possibility of stains, but we have additionally coated it with a non-toxic sealer to protect against dirt and liquid damage. The sealer is food-safe making the tray perfect for use at your next dinner party, but we do not recommend using it as a cutting board or using any sharp utensils on it which could scratch the marble. Be sure to wipe up any spills from dark liquids (wine, dark sauces) immediately for best results. To wash, do not submerge in water, but rather wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean towel.
