This was inspired by Radishdiva's pipecleaner chandelier (here is the kick ass original:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99268.0)

In the same vein as my "college students need art too..." "Last Supper" frame, I decided to make myself a nice, sparkly, colorful chandelier- for cheap.  All the supplies came to about $18, and I still have jewelry findings left over.  It was made from pipe cleaners, gauge 20 jewelry wire, jewelry findings, and store bought pendants that are supposed to be used as pendents or earrings.  I also used those cheap, plastic beads that come strung on the elastic bands that they sell at the dollar store. 

On to the pictures:

Thanks.  I was torn between making it completely out of the jewelry wire or have the pipe-cleaners in there too.  Of course my love of color is equal to that of my love of shiny things, so I did both.  Smiley
