I was wowed by the sea glass chandelier featured on Wire Wrap Beach Sea Glass, this is another stunning creation. Made by Thomas Troisch of Troublefish, this impressive eight armed sea glass chandelier is constructed with recycled materials and thousands of hand collected seaglass pieces.

The chandelier is mounted in the dining room and the colors of the interiors were selected from the colors of the sea glass. The picture is captured from the living room. The framed image is the blue print for the chandelier, a piece of art in itself.

The hand rendered blue prints (in Adobe Illustrator) diagram the detail of both, the lighting fixture as well as the composition of each sea glass strand -sea glass color chart with names included! Color labels, starting from the top (A) are, Cola, Root Beer, Olive, Emerald Green, Pine Green, White, Deep Ice, Aqua, and Cobalt. "Rooted in the opulence of old-world design, the strict use of reclaimed materials and hardware embodies the essence of recycling and sustainability," Troisch says.
