Creating Magic

I watched that movie "Autumn in New York" on cable over the weekend. I think that's the name, with Winona Ryder and Richard Gere? How many times can this story be told? But my point is that once again one of these crappy romantic films has a kick ass set designer. I need to recreate the magical hanging mobile in Winona's character's room. It looks like it's made by dangling at least 40 strings of decreasing lengths of silver and crystal beads from a 2' long bar and putting windchimes on the bottom. Then hang in the middle of your gigantic New York loft. You can breeze through it when feeling magical or bump into it to add a note of charm to your clutziness: say when that fetching stranger three times your age happens to call, catching you off guard.
It could happen, you're creating magic!
