DIY Lights

There’s been a huge upsurge in people making their own light fittings at home. I’m all for DIY and while they look gorgeous, they may not be safe. I have a background in lighting design and I can’t stress enough the importance of seeking advice from a licensed electrician before working with anything electrical.

For example, if not manufactured correctly these beautiful pendant lights made from jars can be a fire hazard as the heat builds up inside the jar and can’t escape.

Please don’t risk your safety to save some $$.
