My Thing For Industrial Bubble Chandeliers

Something about the ethereal nature of these industrial looking bubble light chandeliers gets me every time.  They're so beautifully sculptural (art!), yet completely functional (light!).  And, oh, how I'd love to have one of my own!

These pretty bubbles come at a hefty price...for example, the below custom fixture by Lindsey Adelman is a whopping $11,000!


I don't have a lighting budget - much less a car (or anything) budget - that quite fits that figure.  Subtract 2 zeros and we might just be talking my ball park.  The fixture below from School House Electric is much more affordable at $195 and comes in a choice of 7 finishes.


By george, I think we've got a fabulous DIY option below that may fit the budget even better!  I first came across this amazing fixture on one of my favorite blogs - Little Green Notebook  - by Jenny Komenda.  She had featured a beautiful kitchen renovation by folks over on the One Kings Lane blog, and this fixture was part of their handiwork.


Thankfully, DIY instructions for this fixture were posted shortly after on Jenny's blog {here} and the One Kings Lane blog {here}!  Materials are below...and, it's all stuff you can get at the hardware store.


Again, a detailed material list and step-by-step instructions can be found at the blog links above.  It's like Christmas in May!

Do you like these fixtures as much as I do?  Which would you opt for if no budget were in check?  Any takers on the DIY version?  I really would like to create one of these for our home...maybe someday.

Don't they go so well with the japanese cherry blossom wallpaper in that dining room! Jennifer.
