This project is so inspiring and one of those things that would take me months of pondering to figure out for myself. If you have some basic metal smithing skills it'll probably be easy for you, but if not, don't fret: if you follow this tutorial you'll have your own vintage-style schmancy brass lamp.

What You Need

Materials
6 brass sheets measuring 4" x 10" and .010 thickness
10 gauge soft brass wire
pendant kit
rivets
paint in antique gold

Tools
circle template
needle nosed pliers
wire cutters
disc cutter or hole puncher that works for fine gauge metal drill

You start by using the circle template to draw circles on the brass sheets. Then you use a disc cutter and hammer to punch the holes.
