This upcycled light, made from (among other things) aluminum jello molds and cake trays, conjures for me the song the Hatter sings to Alice at his tea party:

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.

And really, who wouldn't want a cluster of brushed aluminum bats over their dining table?

The light measures about 14 inches in diameter by 9 inches tall (to the top of the topmost tray). As configured, the drop from the ceiling is 2 feet, but I can modify the length to your specifications. It is intended to be installed as a ceiling fixture (be sure to consult a qualified electrician), but for less permanent situations, it can be hung from a hook, as shown in the long photograph.

It will ship with the bulbs shown: 5 watt clear nightlight lights. The 13 of them add up to 65 watts, but as the light is reflected off the aluminum, the effect is more diffuse than a single bulb would be. It's quite romantic as is, but for an even softer look, you could use 4 to 7 watt frosted white. Or for parties you could swap in colored Christmas tree bulbs. LED bulbs are also available that would fit, for energy savings.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
