Agate Lamp Finials
« on: July 03, 2012, 12:46:50 PM »
I just made a few of these up to test the waters of Etsy (so to speak)... what's sad is I realized that I only have one lamp in my house that a finial would attach to, and it's the wrong size!!

So either I buy a new lamp, or just let folks with appropriately sized lamps have these pretties.   8)

Great idea with geode slabs.  I thought the threads for all finials were the same, so they sould screw onto the threads on top of any lamp.

Apparently there are two sizes... 3/8 & the standard which is 1/4-27 (which is the size these are thankfully!)
