I love the ethereal glow masses of lanterns provide. When hung from varying heights in multiples, the effect makes a heavenly statement. Paper lanterns en masse have made the wedding decoration rounds, but this same idea also works well in a more permanent setting. World's Away has created a Ball Pendant from capiz shells, that when illuminated display the shell's patterns in the most wonderful glow. Why not hang them over a dining table or an entry for instant drama.

For a more classic globe version, PB Teen (yes, you read that right) has these stunning linear Faceted Capiz Pendants. The price is right and they lend a sophisticated air to their surroundings.
