A DIY Faux Capiz Shell Chandelier posted on Design Sponge. So Susan and some of her friends got together to make the faux chandelier. A zillion wax paper circles needed to be cut out!
You can find the full tutorial on Susan’s blog Freshly Picked here: How to Make a Capiz Chandelier. She started with a thrifted lamp shade, added an extra row of wire and sewed the wax paper circles together on the sewing machine.
