I’ve been busily preparing for BCTF London, and as you know, working on some new lighting products to launch there. The show is only a week away, so I will give you a sneak preview of some of the lace lantern lights I’ve made. They will be available to buy online soon, for shipping after I return from the show on 13th September. They will be £25, plus postage. **UPDATE- you can buy the first in the range here**
The Lace Lantern Lights are made from specially made fabric (cotton organdie with rayon thread stitching) and embellished with a new lace design that I have called ‘Forget Me Not’, inspired by the flower of that name. Each lantern has a small lace ‘dangler’ made from the same design. They have a rigid PVC liner and stand approximately 13cm tall, with a 10cm diameter. They can ONLY be used with a battery powered LED tealight or other light. I particularly like the EggLite, (available to buy from The Hanging Lantern Company) as it give a stronger light which shows off the lace really nicely.
I have also produced a lantern with a lace heart, which can be personalised with two initials, perfect for a wedding or anniversary gift! Photo below..
And the great thing about this little lantern is that when not being used as a light, it can hold a jam jar of flowers!
