This is attributed to Aisling Farrell, but I believe it's really the work of Maia Bergman as part of her fashion studies finals collection. This glorious texture uses plastic beads in delicious colors. Find more at http://1granary.com/central-saint-martins-fashion/ba-final-collections/maia-bergman/
Ellie and I made the Melted bead suncathers but the melting plastic smell is horrible, even when we did it outside on the grill. Plus i was paranoid about bpa, so we won't be doing this. It turned out OK. not as cute as it showed here for some reason.
Layer cheap plastic beads in cake pans (no lining required), melt at 400 for 20 minutes,let cool, & then just flip them out. Drill a hole in it to make it a suncatcher! Great "craft" for kids (choose the colors, arrange them in the pans) to make as gifts for grandparents or teachers.
