We've talked about many different DIT lighting ideas in the past, but this reuse of an everyday household item caught me completely off guard. Can you tell what these pendant lights are made from? Find out below...

...Salt! Although these are designer in nature, I think there could be some DIY experimentation in my future.

I love their natural look and how the light that shines through their structure isn't always as strong. Obviously the thicker the salt is in places, the more dense it is and lessens the amount of light that can push through.

I'm curious what different adhesives will do to salt before it's formed. Would you use egg white? Glue? Even if I can't get it to work out, I'm glad these exist. And even though it's an oft-seen pendant, they're uniquely different in construction and shape, even if the difference is oh-so-subtle.

You can check out these works from Roberto Tweraser and others from his website or over at Inhabitat.
