When I was visiting family over Thanksgiving I saw an ingenious way to use them all up - of course my Aunt was responsible for it. So when I got home I went right to work making my own.
It took me a week to get all the crystals strung. I bought LOTS of additional Swaroski colored crystals to string inbetween the larger ones. Thanks to Mum I have a BUNCH of snowflake crystals... my favorite!
It took a while to get them all strung up correctly. The lamp is from World Market it had a bunch of shells hanging off of it, I just chopped them all off and then restrung the lamp with crystals hung on fishing line.
I just LOVE how it turned out! It sits in a corner in the living room and cast a yummy warm sparkly glow. Sheries also has really pretty copper that she put a pattern into running over the top of the lamp. I haven't ordered any yet... so we will see if I ever get to that!
