lightly

Chandelier, round two!
This one is shorter than the first version, but it's denser with the glass balls. If I had more glass balls (say, seventy-five more) I'd create a center waterfall effect to help diffuse the light a bit better. The diffusion of light (or lack thereof) is my main beef with the lighting, still: I want a soft glow filtered through the curtain of glass balls, and it's still a little too intense, despite my low-wattage bulb replacements. I'll just have to stand in the corner and mutter to myself about the horrors of overhead lighting.

Thanks, Amy! Yup, I made it using lots and lots of dental floss, a whole bunch of clear glass xmas ornaments (95, I believe), and a wire wreath frame.
It's no Kalmar, but on a renter's limited redecorating ability, I'm pleased.
