Some people want chandeliers worked over with precious metals, ornate carvings or layers of stained glass. Artist YaYa Chou, whose inner child is wholly intact, went for a chandelier covered by strings of Gummi Bears instead.
Amazingly, the whole setup looks like it produces a pretty impressive chandelier, casting a warm, rainbow-colored glow. YaYa connected the Gummies with monofilament wire and tied it all together to the frame of the chandelier. Seems like it'd make a great centerpiece, but I imagine it starts to look a little ratty as guest sneak a Bear or two here and there — or if the thing starts to melt. The artist also made a Gummi Bear bear rug.
Looks like none of the white Gummi Bears made the cut. (Those taste like pineapple, right?) I suppose those were YaYa's favorite, or maybe the artist just thought they were too bland a color to include.
