Bicycle Lamp RevisitedNovember 12th, 2014 in projects
Some of you may remember the first time I posted a bicycle wheel lamp a long time ago. I revised this one and reworked it into something that's beautiful all year long. I used a lamp kit to wire the wheel and decided to use chain for the bulk of the lamp. I used a flat oval link that they call plumbing chain, because it has a more contemporary look. Then I just cut it to my desired length and tied it on with clear filiment (fishing line, in this case.) I chose to use a clear crystal bead to add some sparkle and bling. We can all use some extra sparkle in our lives--everyone loves light that reflects off of metal and crystal! This project is not difficult in any way but is time consuming and requires a lot of materials. I used 50 feet of chain and over 100 beads. It was tons of fun to see it develop into this beautiful sparkly chandelier. I've added a picture of the one I made for Christmas last year so you can see the multitude of ways this can be crafted to fit your own personality and style.
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
