This beaded star shape lampshade can sit on the table by itself or can hang by the loops provided. It is made in the shape of a stellated icosahedron and is made from 8 mm acrylic beads and 0.7 mm fishing line. For a light source you can put in LED strings or use an LED bulb in the lamp, as you prefer.
Warning! Incandescent bulbs must not be used, as they get too hot.
You can use any type of LED strings in this lamp. There are many types available in lighting shops or online. When you put the LED strings inside the lamp, be careful, usually LED strings are very delicate and break easily when pulled. Make sure that the LEDs do not get stuck in the holes between the beads. You can also use an LED light bulb in this lampshade and you will not need additional mounts for it, just use a light fitting with a lead and plug (as in the photo).
In this order you will receive a lampshade; and I will also send to you a string of LEDs as a gift. The plug of the LED strings may not fit the outlets in the place where you live and may need to be changed.
Please note: I do not guarantee the LED strings. The LEDs are working at time of sending, however the wires are very fragile and can break easily.
This lampshade has one important advantage — it is resilient and will not break or fall apart if you drop it, but try not to expose it to strong environmental influences.
