Spectacle Chandelier by Stuart Haygarth

I will say right now that this beautiful chandelier is one of the most innovative examples of repurposing that I have ever seen. It is one of a limited number of 20 made by inspired artist Stuart Haygarth. And you will never believe what it is made of. The Spectacle chandlier is created from 1020 pairs of prescription glasses (hence the name spectacle) which are linked together to resemble a traditional tiered chandelier. According to Haygarth’s website, “By using prescriptive spectacles which were once an essential tool for seeing an interesting analogous line is drawn between their old and new purposes.” The light fixture inside reflects off each pair of lenses for a truly unique lighting effect.

Price: I can only guess it will be high since he made just 20, but you can feel free to request pricing.
