enchanting times with miniatures chimes
something I love in 1:1, and I just had to make it in 1:12. Started with it & made all the parts quite a long time ago, it 'only' needed assembly. That took some time to figure out. For example how to place the pipes without the threads going through the wooden disc? And is there wire or thread of some kind for hanging the pipes that is thin enough? Unfortunately there wasn't.. even the thinnest yarn looked too massive for what in real life is a thin transparent wire (on the one I used to have that inspired this 1:12 one). But I did find something that turned out to be great for it and is strong too, really closeby actually..... ;) It was still quite a hassle to get it all together, my boyfriend laughed at my repeating 'cursing' as it was really difficult and took me quite some time to do. But I do love it, especially for a first try!
