LAMPSHADE PROJECT

This past weekend it rained in So. California. I love the rain for so many reasons and one in particular. I get to work on detailed projects indoor. This last weekend I started decorating a lampshade. I wanted to incorporate solder pieces and lace. It's not complete and I am looking for a stand or a lamp at the moment. 
I can't wait to show you the entire piece!.
