Description

The minimalistic beauty of clean, geometric lines give this modern octahedron orb its charm. The octahedron has been hand sewn using brass and delicate wire. "Octahedron" is the geometric term for a 3D cube shape with 8 equal triangular faces.

Himmeli are an age-old Finnish Christmas ornament tradition, but this piece doesn't need to be exclusively stored with your holiday decor; it will liven up any table, desk or bookshelf space with its irresistible charm any time of year!

It comes with all materials precut to the right sizes and both written and video instructions for you to follow :) https://www.etsy.com/listing/512780730/diy-kit-pattern-geometric-octahedron

Options & Dimensions:
*Mini Hanging Ornament (in the last two product photos):
Tip-to-tip: 4.25"
Width across the square middle: 1.75"

*Single Medium (in product photos 2, 4 & 5):
Tip-to-tip: 4.25"
Width across the square middle: 3"

*Single Large (in product photos 2-5):
Tip-to-tip: 8"
Width across the square middle: 5.75"

*Nested Mobile (in product photos 1 & 6):
Made with one of each medium & large size (4.25" & 8") chained together with brass chain. This can be hung 3 ways:
1) medium nested inside large
2) large hanging above medium
3) medium hanging above large

**However, we can make ANY custom size because we cut the brass ourselves. Please send us a message if you want a custom size not listed! The price increases slightly since larger sizes use more materials.

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. :)

Some recommended uses:
-- 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) and use it as wall decor.
-- You can even display air plants by letting them sit in one of the 20 triangular 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.
