Wow - A Jewelry Lamp

So everyone has a favorite thing at their Grandparent's house. Mine was the lamp below. I remember the first time I saw it in the back guest room. I thought wow, this is so unique. I had never seen anything quite like it at the time. I love old jewelry so naturally a lamp completely covered in old shiny sparkley things would draw me in. I asked my Grandma Mirene about the interesting piece. She said that a friend made the piece. I said well if you ever decide to get rid of it I would really like it.
So the day finally came last year, and I was going to be driving through Grandma's neighborhood in the NW and she said I should come pick up my lamp. Well I was so excited about my new lamp. I don't really have any other lamps. And this was not your ordinary lamp this was the holy grail of lamps for the jewelry maker. So now that we are moving into a new house with some room. My favorite lamp will finally be on display. I am planning to make a very funky, outrageous shade for it. I think it deserves the best. Along with the lamp my grandma included a letter telling my the history of this great piece.
