Cool Lights



Bottom of Plastic Water Bottles








Discarded eyeglasses


Chandelier made from discarded poppers following millennium celebration.

Stuart Haygarth is a British artist who makes the coolest light installations using common materials. Who knew that discarded eyeglasses could look so delicate and beautiful?
I am trying my hand at making a recycled material chandelier this summer. I will keep you posted on my progress.

I love these! Especially the first one - I never would have guessed what it was made from.
Good luck with your project.

I am slowly working on a altered water bottle chandelier myself. I really do dig the sunglasses one though. Great use for those that are scratched up or you don't want to wear anymore.

I for one cannot wait to see what you come up with because you are a fabulous collector with a great eye... this should be very interesting to follow.

I think I like the eyeglass light the best.

Thanks for the cool pics--cupcakes, lights out o' junk...so cool to see what happens when people open theirs minds and let the ideas fall out.

Linda- Thanks for stopping by. I am in LOVE with the chair now that it is done. I will have to put up a picture of it...I too am making 2 recycled type lights for my kitchen- using old planter baskets and some silver spoons and prisms...I need to get the light fixture parts from IKEA next week and then I can hang them! What's yours like?
