Thread Leather

You'll only be using the hoop that doesn't have the screw on it. Fold one leather strand in half, leaving the ends uneven. Thread the ends through the folded loop around the hoop creating an overhand knot. Pull tight. Continue to create overhand knots all the way around the hoop with all of the leather strands.

Glue Feathers

On every third strand, glue a feather.

Glue Beads

On every other strand, thread and glue on a bead. You can leave a few leather strands empty, as well.

Gather Leather Strands

Bring six of the leather strands, evenly spaced apart, above the hoop. Knot them together.

Hang Pendant

Use a screw hook in your ceiling to hang the pendant light cord and chandelier. Place the light cord inside the chandelier with a low-watt bulb. This chandelier can also be displayed without a light.
