Kitchen light

This is a bad picture but you get the idea - I started with a large clear suction cup and painted on layers of glaze and then glass paint until I got an effect I liked. I have electrified this type of light before but I'm not putting electricity in this house so I used a bead to represent a large bulb. It is glued to a cylinder bead which is glued to the inside of the shade. I used embroidery floss to represent the electrical cord, a bead to make it look as if the light can be adjusted to different heights and then a bead and a metal cap thingy to fasten to the ceiling. This photo was taken inside a dirty pink box. The light will look much nicer in it's eventual home. :0)
