Multiple pieces of clear glass shapes laid out in a circular geometric pattern


After separating and counting all of the individual crystals, I realized that due to the much thicker (and therefore heavier) pieces of glass being used, I would need to much more evenly disperse the pieces to maintain proper balance when hung. After doing a bit of math and evenly dispersing the existing crystals, I figured out a way to design the panels as two sets of nine panels each, with each set divided into three subsets of three identical panels, which I would then alternate accordingly. After cutting down additional long rectangular bevels into parallelograms, and adding round and shaped cabochons and glass nuggets to fill in the empty spaces and also be evenly dispersed, I laid them all out and played with the arrangement to create a random looking yet perfectly balanced and radially symmetrical pattern, as shown here using painter's tape to keep them organized.
