Introduction: Glass Chandelier

This chandelier is made from glass which would beautify your home.

Step 1: Gather the Materials

Things you'll need:
-Glass rings or bangles(these can be DIY using glass bottles)
-Nylon thread
-Glass beads
-Golden beads(optional)

Step 2: Preparing the Plywood Base

Cut the Laminate according to your ply size and Apply fevicol(glue) on the Laminate and the plywood and stick together.

Step 3: Drilling the Ply

Drill holes at appropriate distances according to your pattern. I used a 2mm bit. I made a provision for three lights by drilling a 1 inch hole.

Step 4: The Basic Plan

This was my basic idea which I sketched it. You can have any pattern, which you can sketch it down in this way.

Step 5: Making the Glass Structure

Tie three rings together and glue them. Let it dry in a position you want your structure to be.

Step 6: Making the Strings

Take a long piece of nylon thread and insert the beads and glass structures by interlocking them as shown. The number of such strings to be made is that of the number of holes you drilled in your ply. You can make these strings of different lengths.

Step 7: Tying the Strings to the Ply

Insert one end of the string in the drilled hole. Insert a bead in the thread and put it back inside so that it gets locked. Now put a drop of hot glue to hold it in place. You can adjust the length of the strings in this step.

Step 8: Installing the Lights

I used one watt LED spotlights. All you have to do is just insert the lights in the drilled holes and make the connections(don't forget to use a driver). And your chandelier is ready :)
