Asian-style lampshade

This is the second lampshade I have made for a floor lamp in our dining room.  It was made from a burn-out velvet scarf purchased from ebay.  I hand-dyed the fringe & gimp trim.  The beaded trim was also an ebay purchase.  Since the wire frame is an Asian style shade, I opted for the same style of finial.

Thank you - I love making lampshades - just wish I had more time to devote to it. I love your blog - great Craigslist finds! I wish our local Craigslist locations had treasures like that.
