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.
