About The Vintage Chandelier Glass Art

This hobby has roots in art therapy. What you see in the final projects are a result of this therapy.

The maker behind the finished pieces has a neurological condition and was encouraged via therapists, care coordinator, and practitioners to find a hobby/interest to not only find purpose, and hobby to fill time while alone (house bound). This type of creative work found in the pieces helps to keep eye hand coordination, and skills such as counting/math. Piano, drawing and other left/right brain skills were practiced, however playing with beads, string, colors, shapes, textures won the attention. With hands on help and encouragement from family, friends, care aids and community the hobby continues and are so grateful and fortunate for this.

Inspired by the beauty, colors, shapes, refraction and classical lines of vintage chandelier glass, the desire to adorn windows with "necklaces" was born. With great passion to enhance and highlight these features included in large hangings and individual strands.

 

These Vintage Chandelier Window Necklaces feature rare colors, shapes, and cuts from the days  when elegance in lighting and glass production was regarded as a true craft and art form.
