The 50s were considered the prime time of swag lamps, but they didn't get their top popularity until the 70s. Basically, there was almost no kitchen or house corner without one or more swag lamps hanging over. When plastic became part of all industrial manufacturing sectors, it is easy to understand why swag lamps were both easy to produce and maintain, and plastic was the major primary matter they have been made of ever since. The name of "swag lamps" comes from the hanging technique by means of two hooks with a "swag" in between. This model came to replace other popular kinds of lighting systems that were used in mid 20th century.
Take 3 hanger pieces which have been put to the same measurement. Taking a separate hanger bend it to the shape of a small circular, large enough to rest on the bulb rim. You can attach these by using thick wire and then attach it to the lower rim. Then place it on the blub rim. Make sure it is properly balanced. Now take the mica sheets and drill small holes in the corners each sheets (4 holes). Taking 3 inch sections of craft wire attach the mica to the rims, both up and down. Check if it is firmly placed. And now you have your very own home made mica lamp shade. You can use stencils and paint on your lampshade to add a little bit of color if you desire.
If you are like many people, you may find that you end up locating a replacement lamp shade that you simple fall in love with, even if it does not go with anything in the room. Some people will actually use a piece like a replacement lamp shade for ideas on redecorating their room.
