Oyster Shell Chandelier

I must admit that I am partial to oysters shells. Each one so very unique. Living by the beautiful coast in South Carolina they are lots of oyster reefs. The possibilities are endless.

Take a look and get inspired. Southern Soulmates has a fabulous chandelier DIY that is very easy to make. All you need is a 5-gallon bucket fill with oyster shells to start you out.

 Flea Market Trixie uses a vintage metal lamp removing the shade and cleverly stringing 120 shells creating an amazing hanging chandelier.

You can also use a drill to create a hole in the oyster shell so you can hang it with hooks on the lighting fixture. You can purchase the hooks at most fabric stores where they sell curtain hooks. You can find these hanging lamp forms at Wayfair or Amazon.

 My friend Janet’s sister designs these chandeliers in Savannah Georgia which is about a 20-minute drive for me. The first photo in my post is the chandelier that was created by her. You can purchase them or you can make your own.

I love Chartreuse just discovered this cool blog which has everything I love. A dreamy European style with french inspired decor.
