I made a thing; it's a lazy, quick&dirty, happy hippy version of this thing.

solar chandelier

I used fake seaglass, wrapped in glow-in-the-dark 3D printing filament, as a decoration; in the daytime, that looks nice with the sunlight shining through it. At night, you won't see the colours of the glass but the filament will light up green. And the solar 'candles' give a nice cold blue glow.

The 'candles' are crooked because I don't care and also because they can removed for transportation. I'm going to a hacker camp this summer and plan to take it along and hang it between two trees on a dimly lit foot path somewhere. (Good luck finding a dimly lit spot in a hacker camp...)

Anyway, simple as can be, but I had fun. I really felt like doing some simple easy carefree low-stakes tinkering and this hit the spot. And I have a metric fuckton of the fake sea glass so it's nice to use it in some way.

Pics taken at night are here and in my comment below.
