I’ve had this chandelier catalogued on my wish list for years.
It’s called the Zettel’z 5 Chandelier and it retails for $1,220.00.
|Not only do I think it’s really eye catching but it’s functional in more ways that one.
It provides light and is also a perfect place to hang love notes, reminders, kids pictures, photos…
just about anything.

I bought this light on Fab.com months ago.
Kind of serendipitous that I just hung it up AND it came up for sale again just a couple of days ago (a rarity to find something come up for sale twice on Fab.com).
I decided to try and re-create the look on my own using some wire and clips.
I picked up this whole spool of wire at Home Depot for just a few bucks.
Then I cut several pieces the same length.
I threaded them through the cage of the fixture making a hook with some wire-cutter-plier thingies.
Once all the wires were attached I could gauge how long I wanted my wires and gave the spider looking thing a hair cut. At this step I also bent the wire and shaped each piece.
I found these Fotoclips at a consignment store for $1.00 per box!
They can also be found on Amazon here.
Next, I printed a whole bunch of inspiring quotes in several different fonts and attached them to my clips.
I first tried vellum paper but it melted in my printer and jammed it up so I ended up just using plain old printing paper.
The great thing about this is I can switch them out anytime with almost anything I want to display…
scribbled notes, pictures, photos, etc.
When all said and done it looks like this. I think I’ll probably add a few more wires and notes.
If anything, we’ll never be for lack of conversation at the dinner table.
