my kind of chandelier

Look at this delightful tissue paper chandelier! Seen on Wren Handmade, this was from the Polish Art Center in Hamtramck, Michigan. The rolled paper flowers are stunners. Here's another version made by the talented textile artist, Lena Corwin. I love her more stylized, less frou frou direction. They're both incredible. I'm tucking this idea into the bat mitzvah folder. Could be lots of fun.

Maybe the cool and crafty girls over at Paper Nerds could show us how it's done. How about it Shannon? Local Rotten Bananas readers, would you take this class? I'm there. Yesterday.
