Laura Weiss told CNN she was a retired nurse when Boulder County Public Health asked for help administering vaccines in February.

“I had noticed all these hundreds and hundreds of empty vaccine vials that were otherwise going to be wasted, and I thought they were just really beautiful and wanted to do something significant and meaningful with them,” Weiss said.

Weiss got permission to use the glass Moderna vaccine vials and made a beautiful chandelier.
