Decorative finials are expensive, so make your own with big beads! Here, I used that great two-part epoxy to attach the beads to a plain metal finial.
...and dont forget the pull chain!

I bought this old lamp at a local thrift store, cleaned it up, and put a new shade on it. But I thought it needed more, so I jazzed it up with some giant glass beads I had been keeping for no particular reason. Fun, fun, fun!

I didn't see your comment for a while. I bought the shade, but I'm going to try my hand at making one next time. They just cost too much and most are kinda blah. At least this one was on sale! Thanks for asking. Posted: 1:25 pm on December 5th
