A variation of the standard Bell Kelp Pendant design, the Bell Kelp Etched Pendant retains the same elegance of mid-century Danish and Italian glass and turn of the century art nouveau influences, but goes one step further. Partially recycled glass is hand-blown, then carefully hand-etched with diamond abrasive tools for a frosted, nearly opaque finish.
The Bell Kelp Etched Pendant is warm, hypnotic, versatile and functional. From ambient mood accents to a room’s primary light source, a wide spectrum of lighting can be achieved with a dimmer switch.
The Bell Kelp Etched Pendant is wired for standard incandescent, LED incandescent replacement or compact fluorescent bulbs. Pendants can be arranged in bouquet-like clusters or as singular accent pieces. The Bell Kelp Etched Pendant is designed, developed, hand-blown and finished in Brooklyn, NY.
