A Few More Seashell and Sea Inspired Chandeliers

This is the second of a series of sea inspired decor posts.  The first post also focused on chandeliers and pendants and can be found here.  There are just so many great and unique shell inspired fixtures out there, they didn't all fit into one post!

Below is a typical capiz shell chandelier, but with a twist.  If you love capiz shells, but don't want the same thing everyone else has, this fixture, available through Horchow, may be the right choice for you.  I like the gently curved drum shade.

Another capiz shell fixture is this globe, made from gazillions of gorgeous capiz flowers!  It is modern, playful, and feminine.

This coral inspired chandelier is actually made from hammered metal.

I thought I would throw out a couple of teasers.  These two black chandies were available a couple of years ago through J. Covington Designs.  I think they were from Curry and Company, but I haven't been able to find them available for purchase online recently.

This little oyster shell pendant will be available through J. Covington this spring.
This Serena Bowl Pendant, by Oly Studio, is pretty unique.  I'm not usually a fan of bowls, as they tend to collect bugs (just keeping it real...), but this actually has little spaces between the disks, so if a bug gets zapped it will fall right through!  (Okay, maybe not what you want to think about when you're sitting down to your roast beast -- maybe I need to work on keeping things less real...)
available through Candelabra Lighting and Home Decor

So, once again, I ask you:  How do you feel about shell chandeliers?  Are the gaudy?  Are they gorgeous?  Are they a little bit of both?  Be sure to check out this post to see lots more sea chandies.

Would you install one in your home?  In your vacation home?
