Oh to have a disposable income....

If i had loads of money and wasn't a poor struggling student with a stupid overdraft and an annoying need to buy new clothes all the time, i would save up and buy these lights because they are beautiful and handcrafted pieces of amazingness...saying that, there is a slihjt chance that i could do a DIY jobbie and end up with something similar. Well there's something to think about.

These pieces are handmade  by a company called Rothschild& Bickers, they make these amazing creations at London Glassworks, one of the last workshops in the UK. The idea is to combine traditional glass techniques with contemporary design. 

I aspire to own every one of these beauties.

Build & Recycle

In regards to the shop we one day aspire to co-own we are going for a theme of industrial meets vintage flea market.  We are currently trying to come up with a name so any ideas would be most welcome!  The concept of recycling objects providing them with a different function and transforming them into something new is an idea we definitely want to incorporate.  We are even planning on making a table out of books for our new flat...both cheap and environmentally friendly!
