Ever since watching Design Star, I've wanted to make a custom chandelier. My new place has several chandeliers, and my landlord inspires me because she is skilled at making them. There is currently a sort of rustic chandy in my dining area that is not really me. Landlord said she thought of hanging jewels from it.
Hmmm. Now I've never been much for embellishments, preferring things more simple. But one day while shopping in the bead aisle at Pat Catan's - and becoming completely overwhelmed and over stimulated - it came to me. Whatever I do must be simple. And influenced by rain. I love rain!
So I bought some chains and played with hanging them from the chandelier. Now, if you've been reading this blog for a while, you know I have a ton of ideas, but I'm not that great of a DIYer. So I'm pretty proud of this.
