On the top of glass bulbs there are two holes made for connection system to join two seperate pieces of design. Later by the help of special molds, brass lines are formed and connected to the blowed glass bulbs. Artizen has a classic chandelier form and the flexibility to change shapes by just adjusting the lines up on the design. We create flexible brass lines for this feature. Inside of the brass tubes there are electric cables for finnishing.
