I was in Hamtramck Michigan for Thanksgiving and went to the Polish Art Center. I bought this beautiful paper chandelier. It is made from tissue paper but the colors seem to have faded over time. I love it.

what an amazing find. those little stores have so much stuff. i bought this random yellow eyelet drawer liner at a polish store in greenpoint, and i've never seen it anywhere else.

So colorful! What a fun chandelier, where are you going to hang it?

That's really gorgeous. Happy and colourful, but pale and delicate too. What a great find.

There's something just totally mesmerisingly happy about this thing. I just replaced my computer wallpaper of my child with this picture, because I can't stop staring at it. I wish I knew how to make those flowers, I would LOVE to use them for my wedding.

Wonderful looking chandelier. LED lights could be incorporated into this to give it a lighting function as well. As LED's dont produce a lot less heat than current bulbs, there would be no risk to the paper catching fir

Oh, this is gorgeous. Lucky you! I've been thinking a lot lately about finding or making unique chandeliers to replace my gaudy 1970s light fixtures.

I love this, it would be a great birthday party decoration to bring out with the chinese paper garlands! My baby was born in the middle of the holidays, so I'm searching for really festive decorations to make her first birthday special...just like this! Thanks for posting about it!
I found a couple on the internet, but be warned - they are pricey!
Or try searching for "pajaki + straw + paper". Happy holidays!

Does anybody know if there are instructions on how to make these yourself? I would die for one, they're fantastic. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone has a clue!
