It's hard to believe this sleek flashlight made of plain woven mesh. This mesh is a wonderful material because it can give the most unexpected forms. In this case, the elongated shade is made with pliers and then hanging from the ceiling on wire hooks in the form of scrolls. Inside it is firmly attached glass ceiling, in which is inserted a small candle or lamp. Decorative glass beads are playing in the flickering candles.
wire for flower arrangements
glass ceiling lamp
approximately 400 glass beads
wire for earrings
Cut a piece of braided mesh of size 40 x 50 cm so that one side played by two wires from each cell (see photo). Roll the mesh into a cylinder and twist the protruding ends around the opposite edge for connecting the side edges.
Cut a piece of galvanized wire and wrap it around the top edge of the cylinder. Connect the ends of the wire meshed loops. Attach a wire ring to the upper edge of the cylinder with wire for floral compositions.
With pliers bend all twisted horizontal crosspieces of the grid in the form V and Form the upper part of the cylinder gradually narrowing upper part of the torch, pressing inside a vertical jumper of grid cells.
Forming a narrow, drag the grid cells above and below to create a more convex the middle of the flashlight, pushing the jaws of the pliers inserted into the grid cells, and pulling them outward from the axis of the flashlight.
Starting in the middle of the length of the flashlight, gradually reduce the width of the cells as you move down to form a tapered down base. You have reached the desired length, squeeze the base of the pliers (see photo).
Attach the wire to the end of the base and tightly wind to obtain a smooth cone with a length of 4 cm. Attach the end of the wire to the mesh of jeweler's pliers.
Prepare four pieces of galvanized wire and jewelry pliers to make a small spiral at one end of each. Secure the loop all the pieces around the top rim of the flashlight at regular intervals from each other and give them the desired shape. Wrap these loops with wire for floral compositions (see photo).
Wrap two pieces of wire in opposite directions around the base of the glass shade. Twist the ends so that they firmly held the canopy. String the beads on wire for earrings, leaving sufficient length for hanging loop. Hang on busine wide in every cell of the grid, starting from the shoulder flashlight to the bottom. Secure the canopy projecting ends of the strapping. At the end wrap a piece of wire in the upper part of the torch, forming the belt and pass all four end of the suspension wire through the bead and fold down the ends. Pass through the upper mount Assembly curved loop of wire for hanging a flashlight.
