Copper Shop Light fixture

Our club project this month was a light fixture for our room boxes.  

This is my first light fixture and I debated on whether or not to electrify it.  
I decided not to. But I did add a second tier and went a little more elaborate than the rest of the group.

 The main structure for the fixture is cloth covered floral wire.  I twisted it together and also used hot glue and some paint.

I found all kinds of jewelry fittings mainly from Hobby Lobby.  The candle stick portion are actually silver colored beads that I painted the same cream color as my ceiling.  The piece on top is a small grommet.

I ended up topping the candle stick with a bronze colored grommet and a small plastic button to help hold the lamp shades up a bit off of the candle portion.

The lamp shades are also copper/bronze colored metal beads from the craft store.
I had extra chain left over from the window shade so a glued some of that on there too!


  1. WOWZERS!!! It looks Absolutely FAB and I LOVE IT Troy!!!

  2. I love how it looks! Especially the leftover chain. It really adds to the overall look.

  3. Hi, Troy - You've done a fabulous job on the light fixture. It was a great idea to make the second tier - it adds so much elegance. I love the way you used the extra chain to enhance the shades - perfect! I notice those beautiful copper boxes on the lower table shelf - they look so good there!

  4. Oh Troy, this is exquisite, and the perfect setting for it.

  5. There could not be a more complementary lighting fixture in the shop than the gorgeous one that you have made! You did an incredibly creative job, and I like the way you added the extra beaded chain! The photo draws you right in for a delightful look around!
