Macrame Handmade Clay Beaded Chandelier

$2,995.00

One-of-a-kind, utterly unique macrame clay bead chandelier

Intricate and creamy macramé work has been interwoven with soft grey-toned clay beads. The result is a chandelier that’s romantic and delicate – making it ideal for bedrooms or lofty spaces where you want a softer look.

Each piece created will be unique, a one-off piece of art never to be replicated. We can work with colour and size specifications.

The klaylife Beaded Macrame is a handmade, modern chandelier with a Classic style. An extension to the L.I.M klaylife chandelier, but with the added detail of a top band and belly band that accentuates the line and length of the clay beaded chandelier. The Sash is one of our most popular chandeliers and is a favourite amongst those who are having a hard choice between modern and Classic style lighting.

Each clay bead is hand rolled, kiln fired, then dip dyed before being individually strung onto a wrought iron frame.

Minimal design with the added detail of a top and belly band
Available in sizes small - extra large
Beads are handmade in Africa by a beautiful Community in Kwazulu Natal.

STORY

Introducing klaylife – clay beaded lighting and jewellery, proudly hand crafted by the women of South Africa.

Unlike so many products that come off the factory line, ours have a human story. They’re lovingly created by a community of women in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa*.

Drawing on African heritage and craftsmanship, each clay bead is hand rolled using raw clay. They are then sun dried, kiln fired and dip-dyed and in the case of our lights, masterfully strung onto its unique iron frame. This hand made process ensures that no two pieces will ever be the same.

Initially, our clay beaded pieces were crafted by local women whose lives had been impacted by HIV and so desperately needed an income to support their families. Over time, as popularity grew, more and more women with differing circumstances approached us for work. As a result the criteria has been broadened to any local woman who is prepared to put in the effort to create something special.

In 2012, 8 ladies were permanently employed. There are now over 65 dedicated women rolling beads and creating their own masterpiece. More importantly, they’re making a difference to their local community.

Today our contemporary chandeliers can be found lighting up some of the most gorgeous homes, hotels, restaurants and reception centres around the world.

klaylife is run by a South African family now based in Melbourne, Australia.
