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! Jessica created the orb-shaped frame by simply connecting embroidery hoops. She then fed through a pendant light kit, popped in a filament bulb, and voila! This light fixture looks waaay pricier than the expense of a couple of embroidery hoops!
