Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments!  Cheesy I have been wanting to do this project for a long time and once I finished it, it seemed a little out there. I'm really happy that other people like it as much as I do.

I LOVE it! I fell in love with this http://www.archiexpo.com/prod/kevin-reilly-lighting/contemporary-pendant-lamp-60576-146771.html a long time ago but can't afford the $10,000 for it and haven't got around to making it but this would be an awesome "in the mean time" project.

*ROCKS!*

Absolutely beautiful! And I love that you made it so that it is elegant on its own, but with the option of adding greenery about the edges if you want.

As soon as I hit "post", I'm going to get the DH and show him this; it might be the cure we need; we still have our Christmas tree up because we love the lights so much....

That is just AWESOME, I love it!!
I'm not very electrical, how did you attach it to any power?
I assume you used the existing power from the previous light,
but how did you do it?  I absolutely adore this!  I think this
would look great as a headboard also!  HMM, gears are cranking!!

THANK YOU FOR POSTING!!
