Clever upcycled jam jar lamps

I just came across this pretty chandelier, above, made from jam jars on Etsy (and, below, there's one made from amber punch glasses, right, and a a night light made from a tissue box, left).

Sadly Boots n Gus, the shop behind this clever creation, only delivers to the States, where it is based. (And not surprising, as this mama would weigh quite a bit to post.) But for those with craft aspirations or, even better, actual skills – the images of all the ingenious things the owner has fabricated out of, essentially, rubbish, are super inspiring. *UPDATE: have heard from Fritz Fryer antique lighting, in the UK, who say they can fashion customers similar lamps, and for around the same price - $130/£80 * The lamp made from glasses, below, is super simple – as there is just one single light source in the middle... I'd love to see your own creative endeavours so please drop me a line and a snap if you'd like to share.
