The dramatic lighting effect created by the canning-jar pendant results from removing the bottom of each jar. This allows the light from a modest 20-watt bulb to illuminate objects below the pendant.
You might imagine that cutting the jar would be difficult. But it’s easy if you use a bottle cutter to score the glass.
Just position the jar on the bottle cutter and then rotate the jar five or six times, pressing firmly, to score the glass.
Then snap off the bottom of the bottle according to the instructions that come with your cutter.
