Well I think I am almost done with my chandelier.
I bought this at the What Cheer Flea Market
a couple of weeks ago
I ordered several colors and sizes of cats eye beads.
I decided not to use the pink ones, they just did not seem to go
well with the blue and green.
My handy electrical engineer hubby rewired the cord
with a plug, so I could use it as a swag lamp.
I used my handy-dandy screw punch and poked little holes where I wanted dangles.
(I highly suggest one of these tools if you work with metal at all.
It cuts through metal like butter.)
I made some dangles from the cat's eye tear drops
and some links I had in my bead stash. I then threaded
head pins through the holes I made with the
screw punch and made wrapped loops.
I then attached the dangles to these loops.
I made all the beads into links and made strings of graduated sizes of beads.
I attached the chain of beads to the links that I used in the dangles.
I added the center crystal and now I have a fun chandelier.
I apologize for the quality of the pics. The basement is dark.
This is why I need a chandelier!!!
