The bottom trimmed out with some tassles - more crystal and pearls!
Lights out!!

This will really "light up" a room!

Here's one of my lampshade chandeliers!  An old lampshade stripped down - the top is trimmed with lace from an old pillow case (it fit perfect), and the bottom is tasseled - and of course lots of crystals, and dripping in "faux" pearls.  The little lampshade fit perfectly inside for a nice soft glow - it was all just MFEO (Sleepless in Seattle, remember?? ha ha).

If I don't sell it, I'm going to hang it in my guest room (at least till the next show...)!
