Behind the Bloss: Installing Swarovski Crystal Palace Blossom Chandeliers

Who’s that guy? Is he the art? Is this what the contemporary art market is coming to? Didn’t we max out on performance art with Marina Abramovic at MoMA last year?

Wrong. That “guy” is our Display Director Anthony. Yesterday Bloss had the express task of stalking him around Moss as he installed two Blossom Chandeliers (one large green, one small pink). As you may know (if you’re in the know, that is) Moss is filthy with “Please do not touch” signs, so, we experience a natural jealousy over the fact that Anthony gets paid to touch the items in Moss. (Also he seems to know how to use power tools, which is a very impressive trait to our specific subset of society that pays other women to polish their nails for them.)

What we found out: it’s hard to install chandeliers. It took Anthony, a seasoned pro, 7 straight hours of lifting, positioning, and wiring to get the Blossoms in place. But don’t they look great? Click through our photo gallery below to find out exactly how it’s done.

  1. Found this website today & HAD to give this project a shot. I picked up some X-mas beads at hobby lobby, some nude chandeliers& copper spray paint..and went to town. I must be a bit slower than ya’ll..It’s been about three hours and I’ve just got the bottom of the basket done.
