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.

This is so cool!  Does it throw sparkle all over the walls when it's on? 

Now I am thinking of all the things I could be doing with my broken jewelry.

That is beautiful! The vintage look of the jewelry goes perfectly with the base.
