These Hand-Crafted Clay Pendant Lights will Blow Your Mind

A homewares or furniture piece that’s handmade automatically gets bonus points in my books.

Oh how I wish I were skilled enough at making things that I could produce the pieces in today’s post. The best things I’ve created with my own bare hands were some homemade candles a year or so ago (though I was pretty impressed with the results, I must admit).

But the pendants I’m showing you today are in a world of their own. They’re big, bold and beautiful – and I reckon if you love home decor like I do, you too will be having kittens over how amazing they are. Read on for all the details and to watch a video of how they’re made.

Hand crafted in South Africa, these chandeliers would give any room in your humble abode a real sense of drama. I saw a similar one in Abigail Ahern’s bedroom when I showcased her home on the blog recently. It blew my mind then and it’s still blowing it now.

Each clay bead is hand rolled, kiln fired and dip dyed​,​ then ​​str​u​ng ​on​ a ​​wrought iron frame. No two lights are the same either, which I think gives them a unique little story and history of their own (every chandelier is numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity).

The Klaylife brand is helping a small group of South African women to be self-sufficient to support their families and local communities through making these pieces, which gives the collection some feel-good factor as well.

Curious Grace ​sells the full Klaylife range of styles, colours and and sizes. Prices start from $1998, so this is a splurge piece – but what a statement they’d made in your dining or bedroom (or any other space you want to add some wow-factor to!).

See the video below for how these divine chandeliers are made.

  1. Wow. Glad I came across this post. Great story and video. The chandeliers look amazing as well, and would look great in a dinning room or even bedroom.

  2. Oh wow! If the chandeliers aren’t beautiful enough, watching the video would make anyone want to buy one. Gorgeous.
