Hand Crafted Incandescent Light

CARAMEL CANDY V2.0

Caramel candy bulb version 2.0 or Electricity to mood converter.
What's new:
Filament holding structure was redesigned. To make a middle part of the bulb special glass blow mold was produced. Big change is the lamp got a glass base, so from now it's a custom made table bulb/lamp that you can place anywhere in your home and it will make this place atmospherical and full of good mood.
