Glass Pendant Lights Picture

Tiffany Pendant Lights are one of my favorite things to add to a home. They usually use vibrant colors that add a wonderful pop of color to the room. This style lamp was first created in the late 1800′s and they were all hand-crafted. Louis Comfort Tiffany was one of the first involved with Tiffany lights, hence the name Tiffany. He started a business in which was an interior design company focused on stained glass.

I have several Tiffany Style lights throughout my home. I recently installed two Tiffany pendants hanging over my pool table. It gives the room and the table an extremely sophisticated look and it really makes the room.

There are many different styles of Tiffany pendant lights. Some come with designs, like your favorite animals or your favorite flowers. Others are just simple and the colors alone make this beautiful light. Its actually not to complicated to create your own Tiffany Style lamps, as long as you have the right tools. All you need is glass, cardboard, a solder and copper foil. You’ll also need the colored glass.

Here’s a brief guideline on how to make a Tiffany light. Its always made with a copper foil method. The first step consists of sketching the pattern or design on a thick and heavy piece of cardboard. Once you have it marked, then glass is placed over the cardboard and proceed to trace it. Now that you have the pattern on the glass, its time to cut the glass to match the shape. Copper foil will be used to cover the edges, only after the glass has been cleaned. The copper helps stick the pieces together. Now once the lamp has been placed in the right position (meaning its fully together), its time to break out the solder. Solder the edges together to create a strong hold.
