Jellio: Gummi Bears Chandelier (3 Mar 2010)

Jellio: Fun by Design


5000 Gummi Bears lit up

Isn't it great when you come across those moments in life when you think you've just about seen everything and then suddenly seeing something fantastic and surprising makes you realise there's plenty more creativity in the world to be seen. I noticed this recently posted on Swissmiss which I simply felt compelled to share with everyone and some comments also referenced YaYa Chou Gummi Bear Series including an amazing Chandelier. The pictured chandelier sold by Jellio is made of approximately 5000 hand-strung acrylic gummi bears which apparently takes about two months to complete. Only ten will ever be made and each one will be a little different. The chandelier weighs approximately 50 lbs and is 31" in diameter. At first I thought they were actually real edible gummi bears but the material is listed as acrylic, so that's a shame but at least it will last forever. If you want one then buy here.

So which generous person wants to buy me one?

I wonder how many gummi bears they consumed while making that master piece. How cute.

hi john, my thoughts exactly :-)

hi joey, hehe maybe one of the version actually has the rainbow colours :-)

hi a cupcake or two, if they're acrylic i assume not too many or they'd be visiting the dentist pretty soon :-)

hi bbsnoopy, i guess i can see your point. perhaps in the corridor so it's not constantly always to be seen. would make a great talking piece when guests come over though :-)

hi PIE-3.14, oh the real one wins in terms of amazing but i hate to think if it starting melting or going sticky, let alone the dusting hassle

hi debbii, oh yeah sweet dreams for sure every night :-)

For a second I thought they were real gummi bears...thankfully not - what a waste it would have been if they were all melted against the light. Thanks for the sugar craving though!
