Small Chandelier Type Lampshades
Another customer order for five of these awesome small shades. They are 4" high. The outer cover is a marbled paper. All five will look different. I'm so excited to see these done.
Sometimes handmade lampshade making is fun!

Brass Lamp Finial
2-3/8" high and 1/4" wide finial for topping off that beautiful lampshade. Finials are decorative ornaments for roof tops, the ends of curtain rods, bed posts, clocks as well as lampshades. Finials can also hold a lampshade in place and cover the top screws. They add another decorative element to the room. These are available at my eCrater store (http://shadesetc.ecrater.com) at a reduced price.

Rosemarie Green Victorian Lamp
I just finished this lampshade yesterday. My step-mom gave me the lamp base. The lady and gentlemen on this base are dressed for dancing and courting. They are wearing matching outfits in green and white and the lady has rose colored trim on her dress.
I used 100% off-white silk underneath the light green lace. It is trimmed with rose gimp (this picture makes it look darker. See the first picture for better color) and white fringe topped with a light green beaded flower fringe.
With the light on, it looks beautiful. It is now ready for someone's special room. Since it uses a 40-watt light bulb, it would be a good night light or task light. It has a 6' white cord and the push through on/off switch is under the shade.
It will be for sale on my website for $45.00 plus shipping or at Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe in Bemus Point, NY in Chautauqua County this summer.

For $65, it's an excellent buy and saves our dump from excess waste. Her grandson gets a "new" lamp for a small amount of money.
It's not hard to recycle lampshades. As long as I have the frame with a good pattern, I can do it in two weeks or less.
