Here are 2 videos. Have fun!
Instead of trying to recover these gorgeous sculptural beauties, how about stripping them of their tattered shades and upcycling them!
Use to display/store jewelry using mini clothespins/clips or for pining messages unto for a cool bulletin board. You could also string beads on fishing/filament line and attach to bejewel the wire bases.
The easiest alternative would be to just remove the material and leave them in their natural, sculptural state. If you don’t care for that look then you can move on to plan B. A very “in” industrial look!
Just a few suggestions, hope that gives you some ideas. They really are gorgeous!
