DIY sconce diamond shaped. Answered

I've attached a sconce to this post.
Does anyone know of a cheap DIY kit to craft such sconce?

Upload and attach the image again or provide a link. We can't see it.

One thing is the plates on the sides which would be nice to buy off the shelves.
But the "joints" where one can screw the plates onto to hold them together would be nice to get an idea on where to buy (or what to buy).

you could figure out the angles mathematically but you could just fasten a scrap piece to on side, bend to fit and the drill the hole for the next screw. Soldering the pieces would be an option. This seems like a nice simple project to learn metalworking. Good luck.

You could cut from sheet brass and some smaller pieces to reinforce the corners where it is screwed together with self tapping or tapped screwholes, maybe rivets. Paint the outside and mount to lamp base.
