Thanks Lacey! I got the biggest kick out of that and began to wonder about using chandelier pieces and parts in jewelry.
I did a google search on "chandelier parts" and found a number of cool sites. This one was very intriguing, www.chandelierparts.com. This link in particular.
I haven't been to a tag sale or flea market for quite a while, but I would bet you can find some cool parts there too.
As always, please share any stories you might have about using chandelier parts in jewelry or if you know of a great place to get them!
