Caviar and pearls.....the good life.....easy street.....all of that implied in my first chandelier for the Mount Dora show. I ordered a chandelier with much simpler crystals, then adorned the lampshade with vintage laces and pearls. The large crystals above were picked up in Ohio at a flea market, and the silverplate was from a lovely garage sale. From a pearl necklace which was woven into a thick strand, I unstrung and restrung the draped beads, and individually sewed each separate pearl at the bottom. As I was working I realized it needed more pearls, and the wire-wrapping idea came to me as well as the spoon fulls. And I believe that turned out to be my favorite part. If it doesn't sell, I want it!
