Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. Math 18:15

Here is a brief write up on the recent chandelier's John and I have done, I mention the supplies needed, and a little know how. Write a comment if you're going to attempt any of these, I'll respond if you have questions.

A quick run down of supplies to make chandeliers

 Drift wood
Capiz Shells a friend gave me hers she found them at Home Goods as a curtain for only $24.00
Roll your own beads set out in sun to dry usually takes 2 days.

 We had to build this frame for the shell chandelier, John got an old lamp from the thrift store and used the metal square, then made a frame out of wood, spray painted it all black to match and wallah!!
