ether chandelier by eurofase

My husband and I were having dinner at ascona pizza in Gale Ranch Plaza, San Ramon. I was too full to go back directly to the car, so I suggested to walk around the Plaza, and we discover this beautiful cascading glass chandelier at the gale ranch dental group family dental. It’s so pretty and whimsical, a perfect item to sit in the house, I thought. I am so up for it that I went to google it up and found out ether by euroface from lumens.com that it priced for $11,000++ gosh why modern design always have to come at a cost SO GOOD? hehe… To my disappointment this item can just be on that “wish-list” we all know about.

No disappointment here, to creative people out there here’s siska’s solution, she did the creative DIY bubble chandelier project, it turned out very nice *see the picture here*
