Glass Chandelier with Magnolia and blossom

 

Roll on Spring! Making this chandelier has meant filling the studio with blossom and magnolias, wonderful when all outside is grey and cold.

This glass chandelier  combines white magnolia flowers and pale blossom with clear glass leaves and branches to add that glassy chandelier sparkle. It continues my love of combining the traditional feel of a glass chandelier with a more contemporary style and as usual, a nod to Arts and Crafts. Each flower has been made using hand-mixed glass cane to add fine detail and all chandelier drops are finished with little leaves.

This glass chandelier hangs from a metal top designed by me. Each drop hooks on to the drop above, or the top, by means of a ring connector that is strong enough to hold the weight but easy to attach, combining the unique nature of the flameworked glass with practicality. The chandelier measures approximately 35cm across the top of the shade
