Two Spirit Shrine
All of the metal in this piece is from found materials.

The arches in front are constructed of bits and pieces of stainless steel silverware that I have cut up both virtically and horizontally and the carefully tig welded together.

The figure in the center (behind the glass) is made entirely out of stainless steel silverware pieces welded together.

The rainbow 'grass' you see on either side of the top 'flame' crystal are fiber optics that are lit by multiple color LEDs.

the symbols engraved on the glass vestment worn by the figure symbolize two spirit. The colored lights on the corners of the cross symbolize earth (green on the left); air (white on the right); water (blue on the bottom) and fire (yellow on the top).

This LED art jewelry is constructed in such a way that you don't see any of the actual LEDs, but you only see the light as it interacts with the metal, glass, or quartz crystals.
