For the longest time, I’ve swooned over the Terzani metal chain chandliers. I’m sure you’ve seen them……
I mean, just gorgeous. As you might expect, with such beauty, these chandeliers carry a pretty hefty price tag. Unfortunately, the cost has always kept me from purchasing one of these light producing pieces of art. However, I have wondered if I could somehow recreate the look of this incredible piece. I’ve had an idea of how to do it for a while now and when my own dining room called for a jaw dropping light fixture, I decided to give my idea a try.
First I either needed to find a chandelier that already had the form I was looking for, or I needed to have my welder tack one up for me. I ended up finding this rectangular fixture from world market that was pretty much exactly what I needed as far as shape.
And since the price was so low, it made more since for me to buy this piece and disassemble it than to pay my welder to put something together.
Once I had the chandelier base completely free from shells, it was time to recreate that those gorgeous draped metal chains that Terzani boasts. The way I chose to do it…..long fringe style curtains……
I was pretty nervous about things turning out how I envisioned. But with a little patience I was able to create a piece I think it quite beautiful. 🙂
I chose a gold colored fringe my space, but I think a silver would be quite beautiful as well! I love all the swoops overlapping each other.
So what you think? How does my version stack up?
