As my partner Elizabeth, 52, wanted a smart chandelier we started looking for one, but everything was too expensive. Instead I decided to make one. I looked around car boot sales for materials and found cake stands, tongs, pastry cutters and punch cups, along with other items. Then I made several frames from garden wire, and attached the items to these. I linked the frames together with more wire then hung my creation from the light. It looks as good as the real thing and everyone admires it.
