How To: Make a Slide Lamp

We’ve seen slide lamps in home shops, and thought: cool idea — but we can do that ourselves, and make one that’s more personal in the process.

We’ve imagined a lamp aglow with slides of Rothko paintings, or, for the baby’s room, one that beams the smiling faces of geographically-distant cousins.

If only we knew where to find the little rings…

So we were excited to happen upon the recipe while flipping through ReadyMade online. No sources for the rings, but after reading that they are 16-gauge jump rings we realized happily that they can be found at any bead store, or online at a place like this.

What images would you use for a slide light?
