DIY: Lamp Cord of Wooden Beads

Issue 11 · The Celtic Angle · March 12, 2012

Spotted at Llot Llov, a Berlin-based design studio, a lamp with a quirky wooden-bead cord. We were instantly enamored and had to try our hands at our own version.

Industrial Pendant

Above: My version, which is a bit more rustic; I started with an inexpensive pendant light from West Elm.

Materials

Instructions

  • Use scissors to cut the plug off from end of lamp cord.
  • Thread the wooden beads onto the cord.
  • If you are skilled in such things, rewire the replacement plug; alternatively; have your local lamp shop do it for you.
