Well, hello there! I’m back from our epic vacation and ready to get to work! Ehem. Anyway . . . we’re home now and I managed to wake up after only 8 hours of sleep, which is considerably better than I’ve done over the break, so I’m feeling pretty much like a warrior right now. And I will feel even more so after telling you about this awesome project. So, first, I saw this picture whenever ago and completely fell in love with that amazing/crazy chandelier:
It looks to me like a mid-century C. Jeré piece, but what do I know? Anyway, we’ve got a thing in the center of our living room ceiling, which I’m sure once held a light fixture, but now just looks like a sprinkler. I’ve always wanted to put something there, but could never decide what was right. Until I saw that pic. Duh. Sea urchin chandelier.
Admittedly, mine looks more like the Death Star (thanks a lot, Keith), BUT that doesn’t make it any less amazing to me. I made it in one evening, with the help of my wonderful dad, and guess what? I’m gonna show you how to make one too. It’s not wired for electricity – it’s just a sculpture, if you will – so don’t flip out or anything. But it is awesome and you can make smaller ones . . . wait, ohmigoodness, I have to make some small ones. That’s a great idea.
Tutorial to follow, dudes.
