Speaking of lights made from wire, here’s a chandelier made out of paper clips. Pretty cool idea! Looks like ReDesign Technologies “deconstructed [a] cast-off lamp shade” and used the round wire circles from that as the structural elements of the chandelier. Then they forms a patterned design with the paper clips and used them as a kind of chain mail between the circles. Hang a light bulb down the center, and voila!
I am continually fascinated by how lamps and chandeliers can be made from almost anything. $185 on Etsy. (Via Rare Bird Finds)
