I've always wanted to make my own finials.
I finally did.
I recently came across 2 unusual pieces of coral that were perfect candidates.
I don't know why I never attempted to make my own before but you can be sure that I will be looking for finial candidates while on the hunt from now on!
This one is really dramatic in both size and shape. I love capturing its beauty in a finial where it will eventually be displayed atop the perfect lamp.
I couldn't believe this specimen that naturally resembles a classic finial.
In my opinion, a finial is the perfect way to individualize a lamp and shade.
It never ceases to amaze me how much the finial adds to the presentation of the lamp as a whole.
Some of you might remember this pair of malachite earrings I bought at a rummage sale last year with the intention of turning them into finials.
What do you think of their makeover from dated, broken earrings to a pair of chic new lamp finials?
