I love making lamp shades for lamps! It all began when I couldn't find any lamp shades I liked to accent the many vintage and antique lamps that I had inherited from my grandmother. I purchased numerous books and supplies and taught myself. After much trial and error I managed to create several shades for my home. I was inspired to create for others when many friends asked where they could buy the oversized pendant drum lamp shade I had hanging in my library. Further inspiration came after attending an amazing lamp shade making workshop in Vermont with Judy Lake. I love the challenge of transforming an ordinary lamp into something extraordinary. My favorite part is the hunt for unusual fabrics and exquisite trims. Scouring auctions and estate sales, I have now expanded into offering vintage lamps topped with my custom one-of-a-kind lamp shades.
