I was so excited when I found these beautifully detailed ceramic beads that I just had to use them somehow and this range of Nursery Lamps is the result.
Each kit contains everything you need to make the lamp as pictured, you just have to paint the wooden bases, and although all the materials are included you do have to make, cover and trim the lamp shades.

Dollshouse and Miniature Scene magazine Issue 181 - Nursery Lamps project.
If you were expecting to see the last in my series of lamp projects in this month's issue but were disappointed Click here to read my personal letter to you.

These lovely candlestick lamps were inspired by the very talented Brooke Tucker, and permission was granted from Brooke Tucker Originals to produce these in her style for the 2008 Workshop.
There were a limited number of kits left over and these are now available here.
The brass candlestick part was made in Britain to my own design.
Each kit contains all you need to make the lamp as pictured, you just have to glue all the parts together and although all the materials are included you do have to make and cover the lamp shade.

Lamp harp part & bulb kit - CURRENTLY UNAVIALBLE due to not being able to get the fine wire bulbs.

Lamp harp part kit for you to use with your own bases.

This basic kit contains;
  • Brass harp part
  • Tiny brass eyelet
  • Extra small, long wire bulb
  • Precut shade patterns (2 slightly different shapes)

  • NB. Available in small or medium shade size
    KITLA02S = Small size
    KITLA02M = Medium size

    Please state size code when ordering
    The ingenious brass part was designed & is copyrighted by me.
    Simply fold into shape and superglue the tiny eyelet into the two holes, glue this into the top of your bead or other base. Then thread your bulb wire down through the eyelet and base. Make your shade, then glue it to the top of the brass harp.
    2 sizes available at present, small and medium.
    Choose beads with big holes, big enough for the eyelet to fit into.
    I have found that Thai silk is the best fabric to use for the shades.

    Simply layered with a brass cup washer at the bottom then a bead, then either another washer or straight on with the assembled harp part.
    Top with your shade.
    Long tube beads make interesting bases, and they are very cheap to make as you do not need any other parts. The red lamp is a decorated wooden tube bead. The other is an old bone bead found at the bottom of a button tin

    Produced in Britain
