Intro: Rhombus Lights
Follow this simple tutorial to make your own geometric light fixtures.
Step 1: Gather the Necessary Materials and Tools
Material: 7 lengths 1/8" Galvanized Steel Wire, Bulb (we used a 40W vintage Edison Bulb), Fabric-Covered Light Cord
Tools: Wire Cutters, Soldering Iron, Torch, Solder, Clips, Spray Paint (Optional)
Time: 3 Hours (15 minutes of bending)
Skill level: Medium
Step 2: Bend Your Shapes
We used rhombuses, but you could try pentagons, hexagons, etc.
Step 3: Assemble
Clip the shapes together to hold them in place while soldering.
Step 4: Painting
Spray paint your assembled structure to give it a clean finish.
Step 5: Attach the Bulb
We used a zip tie to attach the light's cord to the structure.
