One, two, three, one, two, three, bead!

Throw 'em back 'til you lose count

Yooouuu’re gonna swing from the chandelier

From the chandelier!

We all know how this song of Sia goes but what’s the hoohaa about it? You’d be surprised to find the styles of chandeliers designers have created to leave you spellbound. One such is the beaded chandelier.

Material: It is a type of decorative lighting fixture which features strings or strands of beads, crystals, or similar materials hanging from a central frame. The beads are typically made of glass, plastic, metal, or other materials.

Style: The beads are often arranged in diverse patterns, creating visually appealing and intricate designs. Beaded chandeliers can fit into different interior design themes, ranging from traditional and vintage to modern and eclectic based on the lighting required.

What is Bobeche?

A bobeche (pronounced boh-besh) is a small dish or collar-like cup that sits at the base of a candle or light bulb in a chandelier or candelabra. The main purpose of the bobeche is to catch any dripping wax from the candles or prevent the melting wax from dripping onto the chandelier's or candelabra's arms or holders. Additionally, the bobeche often serves as a decorative element, adding an elegant touch to the overall design of the lighting fixture.

The Concept: Aquamarine is a precious gemstone of a blue or cyan color, belonging to the beryl family. Its name is derived from the Latin words "aqua" (water) and "marina" (sea). Known for its captivating hue and clarity, aquamarine is often associated with tranquility and a connection to the sea.
