I have done many kinds of lampshades over the years. I will often recycle old drapes and hand die them as they make wonderful lampshades. I also love using chiffon fabrics with embroidery and raw silk to create a more oriental style or just mixing all kinds of fabric into one lampshade and create a multi-coloured panel lampshade to make it even more fun and unique.
The next two pics are my latest creations. First one has a beaded fringe all handmade with black oxydized steel wire and tcheque cut glass beads. I have done a few of these lampshades in small or medium size and many combination of colours. These warm colours are my personnal favorite.
