  Hmmm... I just finished making mine... sort of. I cut and decorated my bottles with twine, thread, and beads I already had around the house. I took apart an old ugly lamp and was going to use its cord and light, but it's not fitting or looking right. We only have ugly yellow bulbs and so I'm not sure what to put inside of them or how to attach the lights inside as mine will be hanging on the wall, not the ceiling. I cut mine too much and the light wouldn't sit in place. So now my bottles have the same amount of opening on each side.

 Anyways, great instructable! Mine might have been a failed attempt, but it was fun and I guess I can use the bottles I made for something else. Thanks. :)

Induction lamp,electrodeless lamps
Jiangsu yuanguang Lighting Instrument Co.,Ltd. is based in specializing production of Low-frequency electrodeless lamp with a collection of scientific research and production.
To Be set up its own research center with strong technical force, there are remain electric light engineers, 25 technical staff, stilled production staff 215 person, annual production capacity can be reached to 3000000piece. Since 2003, over a millions of Low-frequency electrodeless lamps has been sold on the market.
Low-frequency electrodelss lamp is a new light resource.There is not filament or electrode which ordinary bulbs have.Instead, there is a hollow discharge glass rube .Low-frequency electrodelss bulb has a very long service life,from 6 to 8 years in common up to 15 years.It is especially suitable for those places that require long illumination time.Or places at which light sources are difficult or expensive to replace.

Cool! and it looks prettty nice too! I wouldn't mind doing this project one day, when i have lights to worry about.

Very nice looking! I take it you're using the with a CF bulb or the like? You say 'energy saving' but not the type. I would think it would be best to avoid this though on an incandescent bulb as they get too hot.
