Beaded Fringe Vintage Lamp

I love to work with beads and I find it strangely relaxing. The hard part is choosing the beads you are going to use.

This dinning room lamp was missing it’s fringe; little holes holding nothing. I admit when I started this project it seemed easy enough. Make the same sequence of beads over and over again. When hung, each strand from a distance has colors creating a stripe that went up and down as the holes in the lamp edge made a bracket shape.

It took years. The lamp hanging there part strung saying “Remember me?” So I took beads in a little box with me and strung when I had time. Yes I remembered.
