Embroidery Hoop Orb Pendant Light

Jessica of Dear Emmeline was inspired by a fellow blogger to create a geometric pendant light with tons of style but not tons of work!

This light fixture looks waaay pricier than the expense of a couple of embroidery hoops!

Inventor’s Bell Jar Lamp

I can’t help but get excited when I come across a knock-off that’s totally unique and fun, and this lamp from Jessica at Mad In Crafts is all that and more! Jessica designed her “steampunk-style, industrial accent lamp” using a secondhand bell jar from Goodwill and metal odds and ends from her local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
