don’t bring this lamp to a gunfight.

I find that many of my creations are inspired things I find annoying. For instance isn’t annoying when you get some plastic silverware for that BBQ and all you have left is plastic knives. You can’t recycle them and nobody ever uses them. So what do I do? I stockpile.

When I felt that I had enough, then forgot about them, then found them yea! I got down to business. But first I would like to take a minute to introduce you to my very best friend that is a tool. We have been through a lot together, actually we have drilled through a lot together.

Together we made holes in every one of those knives. Taking breaks to cool down the bit and fold some laundry. Multitask.  When we were ready I cozied onto my porch.

with some wire cutters, wire and some hoops from former lampshades.

I wove the wire over the hoop through the hole and around the hoop again, I did this over and over again until I had three tiers.  I ditched this other lamp because well I didn’t like it and my husband keep hitting his head.

I removed the offending pieces parts and added my hoops to form a chandelier.
