I have just discovered Cable & Cotton, creators of beautifully handmade strings of lights, that can be customised to your own choice of colours (43 to pick from) or theme (maybe a wedding, party, Christmas etc) or pick from the pre-selected colour schemes. You can also choose the length you wish (20, 35 or 50 lights) depending on where you want to hang them.
Each lamp ball is handmade using cotton wrapped by hand around a balloon that's been coated in an adhesive, including natural gum. Once the adhesive is dry, the balloon is removed and you are left with a beautifully individual ball that is your "lamp".
Here's a short video showing how the lamp balls are made.....
What colours would you pick?
