Prepare yourselves …. as I can foresee more than a few tape measures being whipped out and stud heights considered to allow for these BEAUTIFUL chandeliers!

I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the world of Klaylife – their impressive and unique collection combined with the story of their production.
Powered by a Melbourne based family, the beads and chandeliers are hand made by local women in the South African Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal.  Initially, the chandeliers were crafted by local women whose lives had been impacted by HIV and desperately needed an income to support their families. Over time, as Klaylife grew in  popularity, more and more women with differing circumstances came on board.  In 2012, 8 ladies were permanently employed. There are now over 65 dedicated women rolling beads and creating their own work of art.

Take your time to explore their website and designs and yes! They having shipping down pat!
