Making The Paper Clip Chandelier


I'm really enjoying our new chandelier. This is how it was made.

Viewed from underneath.

I think you should teach a creative course on turning practical things into art - a looking at objects from a different perspective. (I've used a paper clip to take the soap out of the space in my engagement ring setting :))

Are you freaking kidding me? This is fantastic. Have you seen the tampon chandelier in France? Unbelieveable: http://www.odditycentral.com/pics/the-tampon-chandelier-of-joana-vasconcelos.html

Of course the chandelier is fantastic. But the directions are a work of art. You aren't fooling me at all. You are, or have been, and elementary school teacher. You don't see this kind of creativity or instruction outside a little people school!!!
