chandelier from recycled eye glasses
Amazing!!!!!!!! When I first saw this I was like…gesh, wonder why it is some can think outside the box and some can’t? Strange thing, being a farm girl and living in the country most of my life, the last couple of years I have learned so many things about myself. I find that I am drawn to the out of the ordinary, strange and different.
I love these!! Can you envision a metallic, or venetian plaster finish on the walls?
Salvage pioneer Stuart Haygarth has created an eye-catching eyeglass masterpiece, turning discarded glasses into a gorgeously green glowing chandelier. Spectacle is an optical chandelier assembled from 1020 pairs of discarded prescription glasses, with a smaller size constructed from 620 pairs. The refracted light from the lenses makes fluid shadows that play across walls creating an aqueous lighting effect that shimmers as much as it delights.
Finding new things to do with the old silverware!
