These crystals were made overnight using a solution of 1:3 borax and 2:3 water. Each are solid objects which hang from gold thread. The last image is an object that is made on a loom, submerged into the crystal solution and the crystals grow at randomn upon the thread, this is my next step in making, possibility of constructing my own looms that I will also grow crystals upon.
