I was happily surprised by how the beads made a pattern as I wound them up the neck of the lamp.

After! I love this lamp! I'm tempted to pull it out of the guest room so I can see it in the living room every day.

    Consider donating any leftover beads to a local school art program--beads are pricey and always appreciated.

    Love the lamp. It's so much warmer to look at with the extra texture and interest that the beads add.
