In this post I want to introduce you to the work of a good friend of mine, Sue Wolfe. She is not only a former boss, a current partner at the antique store, and one of my partners in crime at the Junk Bonanza, she is also a mentor and friend. She is an extremely creative person, and I'd love to have just an slight inkling of her talent! If I could bottle it, I would!
This is a vintage 1950's sled/saucer that she transformed into a chandlier. Who would have thunk! In the top of the sled, she drilled several small holes and with wire hung the clear ornaments. She also drilled a large hole in the center where she attached the light fixture.
You can still see the original cloth handles on the underside.
To hold the wire in place, she used a small glass bead and a crimp bead at the top.
Here's wishing you all a new year of creative ideas, wonderful projects and many blessings from above!
