Alice Chandler Velker and her husband, Glen Velker, are handcrafting chandeliers from tea cups and saucers. They scour antique stores and estate sales for serving sets, occasionally buying new for pieces like the harder-to-find teapots.

The Velkers incorporate vintage textiles into lampshades and offer a table lamp version of the tea-inspired light. After raising five daughters, Alice decided to turn her artistic talents to designing the lights. Glen does the assembly and wiring. They’re on display at a booth in Red Door Antiques.
