A friend of mine was giving this lamp away. It is nice and heavy. I like the little table attached. I have plans to overhaul it but still am changing my mind on what I want to do. The shade was cover in stained fabric and I was able to peel the fabric off the shade. But I wanted to bling up the shade a bit with something temporary till I decide what I am going to do.
First I found and old piece of lace and tied it on with some ribbon you cannot see.
Then I started playing with old and broken jewelry I'v kept. I took a black bead necklace, added a charm bracelet. I use the clap on one side to hook onto the necklace and jump-ring on the other side. Then I added a big pin on each side. One pin is broken, so I use a jump ring again to attach it. The other pin I can pull off, wear and pin it right back. Lastly I took a length of chain and add it to make the "necklace" go all the way around the shade and hook together in the back. I just used more jump-rings and a clasp.
What I love most about this project, is when I get sick of it, I can take it all apart and still have my jewelry pieces. All I am out is a few jump rings, which cost me pennies. So do you have a bunch of old, broken jewelry you could maybe refashion into something?? I have another project with old jewelry I will share soon xoxox
