My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw this fixture today -- yes, I am that much of a sucker for beautiful and unusual lighting.
It was created by San Francisco designer Tracey Kessler, who was inspired by vintage construction lights that she saw at a building re-use center. Kessler's resulting industrial-chic chandelier, comprised of 14 to 16 separately wired bulbs encased in fine metal cages, is available at San Francisco's Jak Home for ... wait for it, now: $4,000.
In other words, not gonna happen. But still, I love it.
It makes me wonder how hard it would be to put together something similar with a bundle of pendant light cords, a box of Edison bulbs, and a bunch of vintage industrial light cages gathered on eBay or at my local salvage yard.
Seriously, does anyone know where I could take an electrical wiring class? Because I think there might be some money in it.
