I saw this idea in an old Nutshell news magazine. There were no instructions, so I just figured out my own way to do it. Sorry my pics are a little blurry, it's very hard to get clear pics of small items.

Materials:

Two small buttons, different sizes (canopy)

small piece chain

wire ( to make rings to connect chain)

3 beads

3 jewelry spacers

a triple fish hook ( be very careful with the hook, you can cut the tips off, please wear safety glasses. I didn't cut mine off)

gold paint

E6000 glue

jewelry pliers

Glue the beads to the bead spacers. make a ring of wire to connect the fish hook to the chain and then use a small piece of wire to connect the chain to the buttons (Stack the buttons and use the holes for the wire to go thru). Make sure to get the wire as flat as possible on the top of the buttons so that it will lay flat against ceiling.

I used gold paint to paint the buttons, chain and fish hook, since they were all different colors.

Now glue a bead assembly to each hook prong ( I didn't cut the points off since they were going to be covered anyway)

Here is my finished light fixture glued to the ceiling with E-6000 glue.

I would love to learn how to make these electric, but that is for another time!

Some more ideas:

All of these are in my Michael's puzzle house, which is my current project.
