Marquita Sanford. Lamp. September 11th , 2017.
The shade is finished with braid, lace, ribbon and specialty trims. The finishing trim is applied either by sewing or with hi-tech bonding agents (not hot glue). Fabulous hand-dyed fringe or sparkling beads and matching tassels for pull chains complete the finishing touches.
Preventing Damage: Ensure that the operating voltage of your plug in hanging lamp is in the recommended range. Very high voltages will overdrive your lighting system. Although it provides more brightness, it actually shortens the lamp's lifespan overall. Going overboard by even 1 volt can reduce the lifespan of your hanging ceiling lamp by half.
How to Make Victorian Lamp Shades
One of the most popular special effects is the \"rosette\". Here again the flower theme is repeated with sewing techniques that result in rose-like puffs. Usually they are combined with pleating or shirring that finishes the look. Another method is \"fan pleating\" - a pattern that is reminiscent of the fans used by Victorian ladies to cool themselves. Lace or burn-out velvet are often sewn on adjoining panels.
Those little touches are what can really make or break a room. When thinking about shopping for that replacement lamp shade, make sure you keep in mind the decor your room has at the moment. You certainly would not want to get a country lamp shade when your room is more techno or modern looking.
