On its own, a single hanging orb strands looks modern and elegant in any space. But group a bunch of strands together and you get a seriously stunning effect. Just ask stylist Shawn King, who relied on an asterix flake and 8-10 orb strands to create this arrangement for a recent catalog shoot. He shared his secrets to installing the asterix flake and how to display your leftover glass balls.
- Steady yourself on a ladder, then use anchors to install an asterix flake to the ceiling (make sure that it can support the weight of all of the glass balls).
- Holding the hook at the end of the strand, hang a single orb from the frame. Decide the longest length that you would like your chandelier to hang and cut its wire accordingly.
- Continue hanging strands and cutting them to your desired lengths. Make some long and some shorter. You can always rearrange them to see what looks best.
- Place the extra glass balls that you cut off in a large decorative bowl on your coffee table.
