lighting with crochet
Over the last couple of days I've been working on a lighting plan, so doing lots of Googling and finding lots of cool images of new lighting designs. I've also discovered there's quite a few designers making light shades out of stiffened crochet, which seems to be very in right now.
The three images above are my favorites. The first shows the Nordic Light Pendent by Pickles and is made by crocheting over a Chinese rice paper light shade. Click here for the pattern, so good! The second is a crochet orb by Resurrection Fern which is such a gorgeous outdoor light and casts such lovely shadows. She has also published a free pattern here. The third image is the Afra Table Lamp, which looks like a frosted glass light wearing a beenie, very cute!
