Thanks for the complementYes the quality of the light is beautiful. The photo of all the drywall anchors I took was under the lights to give you an idea what the surface looks like.
Thanks for the feedback I am glad my design is a source of inspiration. I have used silicone wire for high voltage projects in the past (>5kV), and found it to be incredibly soft and not nearly as abrasion resistance of the MIL-W-22759/16 that I am more familiar with. What vendor do you get your silicone wire from, I might get a sample to play with (i.e light on fire). Someone posted a drum set lamp just a few weeks ago that used the cymbal, here is the link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Drum-Set-Chandelie...Some of my friends were joking with me that my lamps looked like cymbals (que dancing monkey jokes) .Those FlexFire LEDs are expensive, but you get about the same lumens / dollar as the cheap ones on amazon, so it just comes down to how much light you need and how much surface area you have to work with.
Wonderful. Caught my eye immediately because I have been looking for something to put over a kitchen counter currently lit (poorly) by a ceiling fluorescent. The lamp shades you showcase here would be perfect for that and your emphasis on a High-CRI LED led me to look for others that are not quite so $$$$. On the subject of wiring, yes, an electrician would cringe and a code inspector probably tell you to pull it down, but your use of hi-temp wire was correct. Did you consider silicon insulated wire? It is flexible, 200C temperature-resistant and has a 300Vac dielectric rating. It comes in assorted gauges -- the 24AWG is rated at 5A.About half way through reading this I thought "why not re-purpose some cymbals??". I could do a pair of hi-hat cymbals and maybe a smaller crash to cover the length of the counter. Well done. (The thing I like most about Instructables is that it's such a great source of ideas, inspiration and jumping off points.)
