does anyone know how to make or where to get instructions on how to make beaded lamp covers. i have seen some that just go over the shade and it makes a very beautiful addition to the lamp. i have included a necklace that looks something like the cover. if anyone can help me i would be a very happy woman.

I can't seem to get your link to work Sad.

We do have a tutorial on making a beaded wine bottle cover...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=121555.0

Is it similar to that? Maybe you could tweak the design a bit to fit a lampshade??

I'm going to move this thread to Jewelry because I bet the craftster'ers over there will have some great ideas!

Here's the page!

I guess you'll need lots of those post-doohickies with eyes at both ends, some with eyes at one end for the edges, and lots of jumprings. Sorry I don't know the proper words, but I don't bead Tongue

As to how you do it, it looks like there are four posts from each jumpring, sort of like chainmaille (Euro 4-in-1 to be precise).
