About The Vintage Chandelier Glass Art

Hi

We're just average human beings, that share a HUGE passion for vintage chandelier glass pieces, and so grateful to make lovely creations to adorn your space with. Put simply, the world needs more sparkle, shine and rainbows- things that remind us to be happy and kind to one another.

This hobby is 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 hangings, and lanterns feature rare colors, shapes, and cuts from the days when elegance in lighting and glass production was regarded and respected as a true craft and art form.

Our pieces are hand strung with careful attention to details. New and antique glass beads including varieties of Swarovski, Strass, Slovakian, Murano, Czech, Egyptian, Indian, Strass Fine Gemstones include: Afghanistan Ruby, Howlite, Jade, Tourmaline, Coral, Amber, Carnelian, Turqouise, Hematite, Amythest and more... Metal Embellishments and Findings are: Tribal Silver, Copper, Brass, Antique Brass, Pewter, Silver Plated Copper, Gold Plated Brass. We truly hope you enjoy these beautiful pieces just as much as we have had in the concept and design.

 A little bit about the creators: Like crows, both are attracted to all things bright and shiny... One of us has had a lifelong passion for birds, both wild and domestic avian. This is where inspiration for the name: "2 Dirty Birds" name came from. The other artisan holds a unique gift of finding the materials, including rare, one of a kind, beautiful crystal prism glass, high quality objects, beads at thrift stores, and antique malls. Affectionately, these are always labeled "SCORES" that provide much inspiration.

The finished pieces you see in the photos are a direct result of art therapy- careful thought to details, design, and eye hand coordination. Generous encouragement and support from family, friends, community, and practitioners are reflected in these works and help keep this hobby moving forward and continuing. 

We are so appreciative, and grateful for abilities to make creations that bring smiles, beautiful rainbows and objects people love to have in their space or gift to others.

Be sparkly, stay shiny, and remember to always be kind.
