How about red chillies for fire?

That's a good one.

I have a necklace made out of volcanic rock from Tenerife that my mum got for me. I've used that to represent fire before.

You don't sound stupid, and the reflection aspect is precisely why I use a mirror to represent water. They make fountains now that hang flat against the wall, but they can be expensive and, I would think, potentially messy/damaging.

Neither air, fire, nor earth have that same reflecting character. A mirror just felt right, I guess.

its a great idea and seeing as mine is already there its perfect thankyou

Nor are you the only person who thinks this way. I've seen other people use mirrors to represent water.

It's not something I would've thought of, but it does make an intuitive kind of sense to me that I can't quite explain.

Plus, if I recall correctly, glass is sort-of liquid.

Yes.  That is why really old glass windows appear warped and wavy and thicker near the bottom.

I've used glass crystals before to represent water. In order to create a fence to reflect back negative energy, it wasn't practical to leave glasses of water everywhere and so I used crystals instead.
