I've always loved crystals. So, this is my latest creation and my winter project this year. It started as a black faux crystal hanging light, bought at a chain discount store.
I removed the plastic crystals, painted it silver, and added my "saved over the years" crystal collection. Many came from a "bag" sale broken light, but with old great crystals. Then each trip to the craft store I purchased a few bags of crystal beads at a time.
It took many hours of stringing the beads, but the final product is my custom made crystal chandelier.

Crystal chandelier from an old lamp fit for a Princess. I have been working on redecorating my daughters room in a princess theme and it really needed a chandelier! I found an old light (ugly brass thing) and saw the potential in it. Since it was only a dollar, I thought I would give it a try! She absolutely loves it!
