Description: There is no rocket-science involved with this hack, but the simple act of adding vintage jewelry to a basic chandelier adds a lot of glamour! Thrift stores and garage sales are choc-full of vintage costume jewelry…ready for the picking. I stuck to mostly pearl beads, with a few turquoise necklaces added for a punch of color. The possibilities are endless, really.
1. Scrounge around second-hand stores for some vintage necklaces
2. String them up on your chandelier, changing them around as needed to balance the beads out on each side.
