I was given some stringed electric lights that I did not dare to use since I didn't know how old they were. They were the kind you see everywhere in Thailand, simple orbs made of cotton string covering a little light. Then my drying rack broke and I cut off all the white metal spokes to use for something.
The picture in my head of little string orbs hanging in the air made me think of the wind chimes the hill tribes in northern Thailand make to ward off evil spirits. They thread colourful cotton string round and round and create these square "eyes" and put bells on the bottom so that when they sway in the wind it creates a nice tinkling sound which also wards off evil spirits. One can see these wind chimes if one is lucky to be invited to stay with the hill tribes. Anyhow I made my own talisman against evil by recycling the drying rack and string orbs.

To begin I have to find stuff to redo, undo or just renovate.
I suppose I could also buy stuff in the flea market but the best and cheapest flea market is in Haifa and a long way away.
So I have had to begin with some odds and ends that I have found lying around. I have no great plan yet as to how these objects will look after I am finished with them but here are the before pictures:
