There are certain things that when you spot them it just takes your breath away. That was the case when I came across these fantastic, romantic chandeliers by a London based artist named Madeleine Boulesteix
Her work is an amazing example of the "rethink, reuse, recycle" artistic process that has become a new and wonderful addition to design
All of her pieces are made using tea cups, vintage facetted crystals and kitchen cast offs which when combined together turn into these amazing lights
She views her pieces as a way to "create, recreate & entertain"
Many use jelly molds and biscuit cutters as well as silverware and toast racks
These shown here are not electric but simply lit with a tea light. It's almost like hanging jewelry from the ceiling
I think these are just so beautiful and inspiring. The next time I'm at the flea market and come across some old vintage kitchen finds I know I will think of her work.
Please go to her web site and read her story. It is so interesting and creative, I know you will enjoy it!
