Making Shell Chandelier
Capiz shell chandelier and is quite expensive but you can make one with a little ingenuity and a lot of waxed paper that looks like the real thing. Patience for cutting paper and layers of “shells” is needed, but the result is a chandelier budget that could have come straight from a showroom. Set metal chain of the same length of three equidistant points on a crown-shaped metal ring with small parties.
The open end of each split ring is slipped over the last link in the chain and wire wreath form. A shape with two or more concentric rings of metal determines the circumference and depth of your shell chandelier. More rings allow more strings of shells of paper and a lamp prettiest spider.
Connect the loose ends of the chains on a larger split ring to be used to hang the shell chandelier or attach to a single chain or rod containing the accessory wiring and light. Spray white paint chains and a crown and hang to dry. Measure the diameter of the open end of a vessel to draw circles for “capiz shell.” Calculate the number of rows of shells hanging you wants for your chandelier and how long you want the rows are.
