Custom Beaded Chandelier

My Work Has Been Featured on An Awesome Blog!!

Custom Chandelier by Simply Salvage

I had just opened my Etsy Shop when along comes a request for a custom chandelier. I was eager and excited to try something new, so after dozens of e-mails about every detail, we agreed on a price and off I went trying to re-create a custom chandelier similar to this Marjorie Skouras design. Here she is all done and shipped out to Krista Salmon of Kiki’s List Blog.

Although this project took a long time to build, and ended up being much more difficult than I originally thought (individually painted 4000+ wooden beads!) I love the result and how she’s used it in her daughter’s room. All I can say is when can I move in?! All photos shown here are taken by Krista Salmon at her home.

UPDATE – I’ve done a full tutorial for a beaded chandelier a little smaller than this one. Check out the posts to get started making one of these babies yourself!

    Breathtaking! I am just in awe! Just about a month ago I was looking at a turquoise chandelier on the internet that is very similiar to yours. I think it was by Marjorie but I am not sure… all I remember was that it was a couple thousands of dollars and I was thinking how do I make one of these for myself cheeply. And here you have done just that! So very cool! Do you think you will be posting a diy tutorial on this? I have looked through all of your posts and just love everything that you have done! Can’t wait to see what else you post~ I know I will be stalking your blog quite often. :) I LOVE your style and your ideas.
