I love vintage jewelry and have tons of items that are broken, missing their other half, or that have lost jewels.
I couldn't stand to just toss out the still beautiful jewelry, and i couldn't wear it the way it had become. then i thought a lamp shade would look nice. i used wire to string on the beads and just wrapped the metal necklaces around the frame of the shade.
i also used clip-on and screw-back earrings around the rim, so they would dangle and sparkle.
using my scrap vintage jewelry that either was broken or missing pieces i put together a sparkly lamp shade.
my finished lampshade now i need to figure what i can do with the rest of my vintage scrap jewelry.
