Barbed Wire Never Looked So Good

Here’s a pendant lamp I made out of an old barbed wire spool.
I’ve made a couple of these now and just love how the light shines through. Its about a foot tall by about 18 across (at the spool parts).
I used a lamp kit for this one and made sure I used a cool looking clear bulb too.
I now look at barbed wire in a whole new light (ok - way too corny!).

JunkArchitect writes: Jenny, I own one of your Barbed Wire Lamps and it really is an amazing piece. I have it lying on its side on top of an old wood pie safe. It’s a cool industrial/farm look.

When she walked in with this one I snatched it up! Thanks Jenny, my pal LOVES it! Georgia Posted: 11:11 am on February 1st
