I built this vintage pendant light, or hanging lamp, after see just how expensive these lights are. I bought the parts on eBay and will list out the parts and sources below. This video is sponsored by eBay, but all opinions are my own.
The video outlines how to make a pendant lamp, one precaution, if this is to be used in a wet location like a bathroom, the lamp should use a grounded cord and be connected to a GFCI.
Black Twisted Rayon Covered Wire
Ceiling Canopy Hardware Mount Kit for ceiling canopy
Brass 2 1/4" shade fitter
Metal Strain Relief - Nickel
Nickel Turned Brass Light Socket Metal Dome Lamp Shade
The cloth covered wire unwinds easily, take care to keep it twisted while working with it. its best to use some tape on the wire ends to get it through the various hardware.
Let me know what you think, thx, eric.
