Paulina Otomi Pendant
The Paulina Pendant is fabulously chic and a cultural jewel, to boot. The fabric is embroidered for us by the Otomi people in the mountains of central Mexico with their "magical animal motif" before being fashioned into a shade over the metal cage frame. The handmade dangling berry papier mache finial is partially covered in gold leaf for a bit of glimmer. Each brightly colored wonder in one of a kind, no two are exactly alike.

- Comes with 3 feet of white cord and a white canopy
- 14h x 22dia
- Shade alone is 10h x 22dia
- UL listed
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including: lead which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
The warning listed on our website is in accordance with a law implemented by the state of California called Proposition-65. Under this regulation, California law requires businesses to provide warnings for products containing chemicals that the state of California has identified as carcinogens or reproductive toxins. Recent amendments to this law require any retailers selling to California residents to list this warning on their website.
There are currently almost 1,000 substances on the Proposition-65 list, ranging from cigarette smoke and asbestos to aspirin and wood dust. One of the materials listed is lead, and because most light fixtures contain brass in the sockets or in the frames of the shades, we are required to put this warning label on our light fixtures. Brass is a metal alloy consisting of copper, zinc and small amounts of lead, which is what triggers the “lead” warning under California Proposition-65 since lead has been shown to cause cancer when it is ingested.
We hope that this explains things a little more clearly. If you have any additional questions, we would suggest visiting the website mentioned above for more information and the complete list of substances that require warnings under Proposition-65.
I am so excited about my pendant- such a great statement piece that everyone sees when they walk in my house!! It is fun and vibrant! I love it!!
Glad you love it, Brenda!
It's been several years since I've decided to pick this pendant for the new dining room. There was not a second when it didn't make me and all the others-family members and guests alike-happy and fascinated. It holds a magic appeal -whatever is the time of the day. We have a dimmer too, so we can control the amount of light and the ambiency accordingly. I highly recommend it. It does command attention, so I'm always careful with art and upholstery around it as I love mixing things and patterns. It's worth it though. It's one of our most favorite light fixture around the house. Incredible crafstmanship. We did put it on a different chain.
Thank you, Jenny! We have always adored the Otomi fabric since our first days in Mexico almost 30 years ago. And to go to the town where it all sprang from and work with the artisans was a treat we will always remember. Jane's little twist with finial gives it just the right punch. Your pleasure is ours and the Otomi people's too!
This lamp is the centerpiece of the interior design of our new great room in the middle of the front counter. We pick up the multi-colored whimsey in our rugs and in many of your side-table/seats in matching purple, blue, pink and a few other tables picking up the yellow & white. The gold sparkles beautifully and I'm so proud to show off this lamp! We matched it with turquoise stools around the mostly white quartz countertop. It truly ties everything together.
