    Hi.  I’m relatively new to fusing glass but I am interested in making a fused glass chandelier.  I think I would like to make something that has multiple dangles around a bulb scattering the light.  Anyone ever attempted something like this before?  Any suggestions or links to examples for inspiration?  

     

    Thanks,

    Tamisha

    Having just finished a pendant fixture – with a team of interior designers –

    for the Keep Austin Bright Competition, I have a few ideas.

    You need to figure our how to shield the bulb or luminaire

    with a form or shape that can be slumped.

    Dangles are easy, as you can embed wires

    or create attachment holes with fiber board or fiber paper or

    drill holes for mechanical attachments.

    Chandeliers are usually open structures

    so a metal support framework is usually necessary for spread.

    You also need to figure a way to hide the wires and maybe also the support structure.

    A single point suspension attachment to the ceiling is needed.

    I would suggest drawing up your ideas,

    build some samples to be sure that you

    know what you want to do will work and then give it a try.
