Story

So, this is what happens when you turn a lampshade into jewelry. The beads used here were reclaimed from an old lamp that my uncle had. The cord got pinched and frayed and wasn’t safe anymore and he was going to throw the whole thing away. I happened to see it and said “Wait! Don’t throw it away, there are beads on that!” They then sat in a bin in my craft case for many moons. As I was sorting through all of my materials, I happened to see them in there and I just knew that they had to become something beautiful. It took me a while to decide exactly what I wanted to do, now here they are.

It took me a while to figure out exactly how I wanted to twist the base part so that I could get the dangles to hang right. I love the way that they came out. I think these things are so pretty! It’s amazing how an ugly old lampshade that had totally seen better days could become something so lovely. I do wish I knew what the heck the teardrop beads were made out of. They don’t sound like plastic or glass, and I don’t think they’re metal. Whatever they are it’s something that’s been accordion folded and shaped into a bead. they’re really cool and make an interesting sound when the earrings move.

There are actually two of the teardrop beads left along with some of the faceted and gold beads. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them, but I’ll come up with something. If I can use up all the beads I have in a bin, I usually do. It’s kind of sad to see a bin empty, and it means that I need more materials, but it also means that those beads and wire and other unassuming bits have been transformed into something beautiful. I really like that part.

You know, this project made me think about how much I love using reclaimed materials. It’s a little annoying because whatever you find is all you’ll ever have, but it makes for a great story and a unique item when you can say that a piece of jewelry used to be a lampshade or purse or diary. (I actually reclaimed beads from the cover of a diary and used them to make earrings.)
