Sea Glass Chandelier

After having stared at one too many $12.95 rental apartment excuses for a ceiling light, I decided to create something different. Rooted in the opulence of old-world design, the strict use of reclaimed materials and hardware embodies the essence of recycling and sustainability. My unique lighting collection is hand-crafted from recycled chandeliers, colorful sea glass, seasoned driftwood and salt-corroded metals.
What started as a solitary weekend walk along the tide-swept pebble shores of the Puget Sound, discerning the occasional ocean-tumbled glass gem, has turned into an This eight armed (E27 40W bulbs) chandelier features two tiers of interwoven strands of sea glass spanning a continuous spectrum of colors ranging from a deep cola brown, via a variety of greens and whites, to a regal cobalt blue. At two feet tall with an eleven inch radius, the fixture boasts over 8,750 hand-selected pieces of sea glass amassing a staggering seventy pounds, all supported by solid brass hardware and chains, securely anchoring it to the ceiling.
Each chandelier is custom made to order, bound to become a family heirloom.

    thanks!

    designing the “blueprint” makes for a nice accessory to the fixture when framed and mounted in the same room.
