Himmeli: Triangles

Himmeli, a traditional woven ornament, remains popular in many Nordic countries as well as in the United States. The wordhimmel in Swedish translates as “sky” or “heaven” and captures the way they seem to float on light and air. Taking an heirloom from generations past and recreating it in brass gives these lovely crafts a modern refresh and provides a unique perch for easy-care air plants. Because himmeli weigh almost nothing, they are a great choice for hanging in apartments or offices where you can’t put in obtrusive hardware, or from ceilings that won’t hold much weight. Even a thumbtack will hold them!
