Almost every new visitor to my home for the last couple of years comes into the kitchen and comments with something like….”haven’t I seen that chandelier before?”
Since then I’ve made many and sold them by the score and it’s always a fun, creative and most importantly Original project. Our pieces have gone into homes around the world…including one created for a descendent of the Mason jar company founder.
My husband came home with the chandelier body that was found outside in the trash where it had been for a number of years. It had naturally developed the gorgeous patina that you see. He told me right off the bat that it was too rusted to take apart and rewire, so that I needed to figure out something else to do with it or (heaven forbid) toss it!
I love aqua as an accent to our mostly white home, and was thinking of a way to bring out the aqua patina of age on the brass with using some glass votives…
Looking around my studio stash the vintage Mason jars seemed to be the perfect solution…and we found a way to make it work…
It’s a “candelier”…

How over the top gorgeous – those crystals are too pretty for words and what a perfect match for the mason jars – it must look stunning at night lit up!!!
Wow, that is stunning…especially for someone that loves aqua!

Do you ever light the candles? Are they easily switched out or do they make a mess in the mason jar?
