Let There Be Light

My "chandelier" began with a wood base that looked like leaves on a tree. I covered each "leaf" with silk, beaded around each outside edge. then covered each surface with sequins and beads, and finally hung beads and gems from many of them. The "branches" were wrapped with gold thread. It became a working chandelier when I added a vintage bulb and electrical cord and hook. There are so many details, you just have to get close to see them all.
