We're All Ears - Chandelier Earrings

Hi all,

Having a little fun today with the February challenge on the Earrings Everyday site.  This month's challenge on We're All Ears was chandeliers.

To find out what kind of chandelier style appeals to me, I took the short quiz from Hudson Valley Lighting.  You should take it - it's quick and fun.  I got Classic Heritage, which suits me perfectly.  Choices that appealed to me included a country farmhouse kitchen, wingback chair, footed bathtub and an airy white bedroom.  It said I like Neoclassic, Gustavian and Victorian styles.  (I had to look up Gustavian; it's a restrained version of the Louis XV and XVI styles.)  And, if I were a city, I would be Williamsburg, Virginia.  It also said I liked finding a good antique.  Pretty accurate, all around!

So, I decided to delve into my stash of Victorian-style components and create some chandeliers from those.  Easy enough, since I still have lots from the book I designed a few years ago.

Here's what I created:

Regal Chandeliers

I think that I can wear these to the opera!  Check out all the other fabulous ideas on the Earrings Everyday post.  Thanks for the inspiration, Erin!


  1. Oh, these are so romantic and dreamy! I love the filigree style for earrings for sure. I'm not sure I would like all that laciness on a chandelier, but I absolutely see the connection. Wonderful job with this challenge!

  2. Yes! All those swirly bits that I have in my stash make great chandelier components. I didn't know you had written a book! That is so cool! The Classic Heritage is so totally your style. Thanks for playing along with me in the We're All Ears challenge! Hope to see you again! Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. Very stylish and heirloom looking!
