Today, I am looking at this super cool, upcycled pendant light available at Hipcycle. The light is made with a glass insulator and a traffic light lens. The light is also available in red.
This wins the “I wish I would have thought of that” award for this week.
Without glass insulators, it is questionable whether the industrial revolution would have been possible. A frequently overlooked part of this crucial period of time, insulators were used with telegraph lines, telephone lines, and electric power lines. Today’s telecommunication industry would undoubtedly not be the same if these had never been invented. These were produced by the millions until the 1970s, when modern technology deemed them useless.
Each lens measures 12″ in diameter. Every insulator is a unique piece, generally measuring approximately 5″ tall and 4″ in diameter.
IT IS FRIDAY!!!!
It has been a challenging week for me. Following the rules and doing what is expected of me can be stressful and difficult.
I think this weekend I’m going to relax, let loose, and just be myself!
What are you doing this weekend? Dare to be yourself and have fun with whatever you do!
I’ll see you back here on Monday,
