This wheel-style drum pendant is special. The custom metalwork is heavy-gauge, and finished in a custom-specified color. Lenses are illuminated on three sides: the exterior, bottom, and interior of the wheel. The decorative bottom faux alabaster acrylic lens is 1/4″ thick and held in place by three decorative buttons, with a reveal around the inner and outer edges. Mesh screen around the interior lens surface adds additional visual interest. Special engineering was required around a number of details: the pendant hangs level with a single custom square-link chain via internally engineered suspension rigging, and the lamping was fine-tuned for optimal illumination within the narrow lens area of the wheel. It holds its own as a centerpiece fixture, as it was designed to be used in its space by Glavé & Holmes.
