Quick Change


I made this pair of oyster shell lamps several years ago and have since sold several pairs to decorators and even a restaurant in Manhattan Beach.



They used to have drum shades and sat directly upon this McGuire table until recently I decided they could use a little upgrade.


 I procured these round brass Asian bases from my local lamp shop,


found a pair of pagoda style silk lampshades at a thrift store,


and crafted a pair of lamp finials from a pair of tiny Quan Yin Blanc de Chine figurines.


Et voila!


 Quick Change


One that I'm liking a lot!

Hello Terri

These lambs are works of art and now even more sophisticated since you exchanged the shade and the finials are a wonderful finishing touch]Helen

Love these lamps!! But one thing you didn't mention, did you have to eat all the oysters?? I hate to throw away oyster shells in France; if you need more I can send you a box....we missed you this weekend! XXOO
