I really want to make this Martini Glass Chandelier! I love it
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/2174851981_cdf3dcfc78.jpg

Any ideas?? I thought of buying a lighting kit from Home Depot and then a couple of
cases of Glasses and using heavy clear fishing line putting the lighting kit in the middle.
Then tie them all off together. I could then get some silver wire to wrap around the top and
make some type of loop to hang it by?

What do you all think of that Idea. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Sounds like a very cool and feasible idea.

My concerns are how hot the lamp, underneath these glasses, will get and will the heat cause them to break. If you can run the glasses through the dishwasher they probably can withstand the heat. Halogen bulbs are extremely hot so any light unit with these bulbs may require more testing and research.

Also, it will be a pain to dust, you may try using the aerosol spray dust remover for computers and electronics.

Good Luck,
Shell

I think this is a wonderful idea, only concern would be when the bulb burns out.  If the lamp was opaque enough you could use fairy lights bunched up.  It would be pretty if the lights flashed.  Oh so much you could do!

Looks like there might be some type of ball lamp in the middle?? Maybe they have something at IKE I could use as a base to position the glasses around?
