Well, it looks to me like they connect four into a square, then add another 3 onto that to make a figure of 8, then carried on and on, wrapping it around the shade. You could easily make something less simple, maybe using the frame off an old lamp?

I'll give you a leg up - they're constructed in interconnected couplets and you have to form the rows as a chain. And make sure to set approx. one week aside for the project. ;) Penelope Bridge www.redesigntechnologies.etsy.com

Was the chandelier featured one of yours, or do other people make them as well?

The Apartment Therapy chandelier is Gary Ponzo's work. He retails through Alan Tanksley Architecture for about $12,000 USD. I'm not aware of anyone else (besides myself) who manufacture paper clip chandeliers. Here is my work...
