Ekas Lamp Shades

Description: I have 2 lamps with Ekas lamp shades – one in white and another black.

I purchsed some glass chandelier glass prism and some purple chandelier acrylic crystals.

On the white Ekas shade, I sub divided the circumference of the base of the shade into 12 even sections, each punched with a small hole near the bsae of the shade. I mounted the glass crystals, alternating the oval crystals with the octagon prisms.

On the black Ekas shade, I subdivided the base of shade into 4 sections. I mounted 3 inches of crystals in each section, then a chain of 4 crystals on each side.
