I actually dreamed I was underwater looking at a beautiful oyster covered lamp with white tiny snails slowly moving around on it. As I reached up and touched it, the tiny snails froze and I woke up knowing I had to recreate that lamp. When I told my husband about my dream and my desire to recreate the light, he gifted me 1,000 oyster shells for Valentine's day that year, allowing me to realize my wonderful dream. Those shells, plus wire, epoxy, re-purposed wheels and finally electrical lighting makes each lamp come alive! Available in sizes 12"x12" or 7"x14".
These are delicate pieces and will come to you overly-protected in yards of bubble wrap and PLEASE only pick up your light using the hanging wires, NOT the electrical wire, as this can damage the electrical connection! The lamps are made for indoor use only. Damp outdoor air and or water cause the shells to swell and the lamp begins to warp. This lamp comes with a lamp spider center instead of an aluminum wheel, (at least until I find some aluminum wheels that small.) If you use the 1/2 chrome dipped lightbulb that comes with the light, it will cast beautiful shadows and designs onto your ceiling and walls above. Unlit, you have a beautiful tan/grey hanging piece of natural shell art, and when lit you have a deep brown/amber glowing natural shell lamp. Each piece comes wired with a 20 ft cord and US plug.
