Raise your hand if you’ve fallen in love with the Moooi Random Pendant light?
I have. What I haven’t fallen for if the price tag. $510 for the small, $1807 for the large. Ouch! So, I did a little research and found a few success stories to recreate this thing of beauty. Jen at Made by Girl did a fantastic job on hers and offered a tutorial, too. Most DIY versions, like Jen’s, involve string, yarn or another fiber soaked in glue, wrapped over a ball. That sounded a little messy to me. I thought, “Hey, why couldn’t I use wire?” So, I picked up silver 26 gauge wire, marked a circle on my ball and started wrapping, holding the wire in place. After about 10 times around, I let go and everything unraveled. I guess there is a reason I couldn’t use wire.
So, does anyone know of a wire that would hold its shape to create something like this? Do I need a heavier gauge? Any tips would be greatly appreciated for plan b.
