Do you like designer lighting, but can’t afford the $11,700 price tag? Yeah, me too! This instructable shows you how to remake a really cool designer pendant light for under $56. Cool.

The original light uses cloth wire which I was able to find in white, then dyed red. I was unsure about using the wire so used the Ikea lights instead. I would love to hear from anyone that has ideas on how to make this design more eco-friendly. While these bulbs are only 60W each I think it can be made better. Smaller bulbs take away from the size and design. I was thinking of running small led lights inside the bulb once the element burns out…some how. Retail cost: $11,700, Instructable cost: $55.93
