Cheesy!!  Thanks!

Sweets you are a melting machine! This is awesome. I love the flow and the colour of the necklaces, they look very "Under the Sea"

Aw, thanks!! Grin

It does have an under the sea feel to it now that I look at it again.  How neat!

Ok, so this is prolly a stupid question but how is the heat from the bulb not melting it?  It is beautiful though, a really neat idea(yes I say neat).

Not stupid at all!  That's actually a very important question. Smiley

The bulb doesn't actually touch the shade at all.  Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of this one's fixture, but I just took these of one that's at my house for ya.  The locking ring that comes with the lamp is actually between the shade and the bulb.

The shade just sitting on the lamp...

Shade, ring, bulb... Smiley

These are so beautiful and attainable. I love stained glass shades, but they take a lot of expensive equipment to make.

Thanks much! Smiley  You guys are so sweet!

Thanks, crafte!  So true about the expensive equipment.  Mardi Gras beads are just asking to be crafted into something else.

so cool! i love the colors and the fact that you used mardi gras beads. i love it!

Thank you! Smiley Smiley

I was going to ask - where do you get the nicely Mardi Gras beads? The ones I've seen have this disgusting looking black/brown-ish stuff inside of them that seems to be exposed when melting Sad
