How to Make: Sparklehive

Sparklehive by Sabel
Pyramid 1 |  /// cups

The superstar of Sabel’s collection is Sparklehive, the Frank Lloyd Wright of sparkleballs.  It’s built in two pyramids of stacked rectangles, which are then joined end to end with a soldering iron.  Pyramid one (at left) is 6 tiers of cups placed the same way  //// .  In Pyramid two the cups are nested /\//\/.  A light strand is suspended inside from the top and  cascades down.    Sabel says that Sparklehive looms over the room in a wonderfully creepy way.  I think it’s quite majestic.
