O.K., so after seeing a bunch of eye candy and inspiration...and super high prices on the store bought stuff...I'm venturing into making my own light fixtures for the Bostonian...

I'm a big jewelry maker...I actually made all 6 of my bridesmaids jewelry, in addition to selling pieces and custom work for people...and after doing some digging I found that it's almost like creating jewelry pieces...so I'm rather excited...I need a stop to a Michaels to replenish my bead collection...but I'm super stoked!!! :)

Yea you! I made a light a few weeks ago after putting it off for ages, and it was a lot easier than I thought, and I have NO jewelry making or other bead creating experience. So it ought to be a breeze for you! :)

Have fun, and yes please do show us what you come up with!

You've got a good idea there -- many chandeliers look like elaborate jewelry pieces. I keep jewelry findings on hand for such things, but have not tried actually making the lights that way. Keep us updated, please :)

PS: I saw a movie once where a fellow wanted to hide diamonds, so he incorporated them into an elaborate chandelier which he hung in his young daughter's bedroom. The villains could never find them! :bear:

With me it was the other way around; I found writing care plans for "real" patients vs clinicals MUCH easier!
