Conch Shell Pendant Night Light

Picture of Conch Shell Pendant Night Light
My Dear Instructables Crazy People:), feels so good to make a lighted object after such a long time. In reality I never stopped thinking about making lamps & lightings but I was giving a trial in other areas of creativity. :D

"When you want something the universe conspires in helping you achieve it"- The Alchemist.

Isn't it so true?

I wanted to make a different styled lamp. I think some of my ideas were unique yet I was not motivated for a go-ahead until 2 days back When I found a big conch shell while cleaning my backyard where I keep my garden supplies (Soil etc.). It reminded me of my first visit to a sea shore in South India, where I found this conch shell. I was a kid and the feeling was no less than finding a Genie lamp of Aladdin that time

And I decided to use the shell for making a new lamp, a different one, a pendant. 

Lets get started. Oh.. please vote for me if you like this ible :).

Step 1: Gathering the required stuff

You would need following items to make a night light like this: (You can check some items in the image above)
NOTE: Please ignore the chain in the image above, I initially thought of using the chain to hang the shell but later I chose the metal tube and found it a much better option
  1. A Conch Shell.
  2. A Nose Plier.
  3. Earthing or Ground Wire.
  4. A metal tube (Thickness like a pencil).
  5. Some wires for lighting.
  6. LED 1 watt with driver or LED bulb small enough to go inside the shell. I had a spare LED fixture which I bought for lighting my almirah. I found it suitable for this job. 
  7. Insulated tape (May not be required in your case)
You may choose to use your own lighting mechanism. I had no other option :).

Lets make some prepration now in the next step
