Glass chandelier with poppies

 

A single chandelier-style glass shade with hanging poppies, leaves and buds. This was inspired by a field of red poppies close to us.

¬†Fitting securely to the chandelier, the elegant top shade can be made in glass or metal and fits into spring clips that hold it in place. There are 16 holders for the hanging leaves, flowers and buds – each individually worked and joined together with small chandelier rings. This allows some movement, which is a nice effect and also very practical. The poppy petals have been worked in a way that gives them texture and variation in colour which adds to the interest of the piece and the chandelier has an ‘arts and crafts’ feel.
