A Christmas inspired chandelier

I found this chandelier at a thrift shop.

I debated on purchasing it or not . . .
 it needed some TLC . . .

 I liked the glass details under each socket
and it had wires to hold prisms  . . .
it had the old cloth wiring . . .
the sockets were bigger and could
accommodate regular light bulbs. . .

or maybe candles . . . 

it could be elegant, restored to her former glory 
with crystal prisms . . . 
or round light bulbs for a funky, artistic style . . .
I had enough ideas . . . 
I brought her home.

I didn't have enough prisms in my stash
and didn't want to invest big $$$ into this project.
I had to come up with some other options . . .
I tried the plastic Christmas icicle prisms . . . 
they could work . . .
or how about little pine cones?

and a rose hip wreath around the center?

and around every candle

She is beautiful again, 
ready to give light over a table, 
in a sun room or outside in a gazebo,
and she's easily converted to other seasons.
 Now available in my etsy shop.

(Sorry, I didn't really get any before pics.)

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!
We're currently decking the halls and baking cookies. 
Hope you're having fun getting ready for the
holidays and time with family and friends.
