Lamp/Earring Holder

The Sophia Lamp by BabaAkcja is not only a lamp but a handy way to store your earrings too, thanks to its perforated shade. It reminds me of something...oh, yeah, thisVia.

Come on, man...


 


My girlfriend is a photographer and every time I visit her studio I have an insane urge to organize everything.  She has so many props and costume jewelry strewn about that I have a mini-panic attack (well...not really).


 


I even went so far as to staple fiberglass screening to the back of a picture frame so she could organize her earrings better (I've also marveled at the ingenuity of a local store that used an overturned wire wastebasket to display earrings).


The lamp might end up looking a little kitschy, but if that's someone someone digs, then so be it...

Now Come on girls, if ever i had a problem with my dangelies and hoops to the point that i am heartbroken about the entanglement of both, i am sure i would have strived to avoid such a catastrophe by storing them carefully with some degree of common sense before they came into contact, what do you normally do with them throw them all in a bucket?


I am sure there are other members of society that have none entangled earwear without having to have resorted to constructing a lamp based respository to contain them.


How about poking the studs into a watermelon, now THAT is an idea, or even potatoes, hoops on carrots or parsnips, long danglies on small pot plants like parsley for instance!

Mr. Bewildered, may I call you Utterly? While I love a humorous
curmudgeonly rant as much as the next girl,
I have to wonder if you have experience of the pain and heartache that
comes from a tangled pile of dangelies and hoops...No? If you had
perhaps you'd join me in a round of golf claps and a resounding 'Brava'
at the multitasking ingenuity of the thing.

You have got to be kidding me.


Bewildered, you may be the only one who NEEDS prozac here. If you need your colostomy bag to have a step ladder so you can reach said prozac, let us know. I would be glad to build you one, as soon as I get done with making this lamp.


This is a cute way for WOMEN to store earrings that would normally get tangled up in a drawer.


Utterley bewildered on Jan 15, 2009:

Correct me if i am wrong, but where on Gods good earth did anybody ever need a Lamp/earring holder?


What an absurd notion. If i was to combine two completely unsuitable objects into one, whithin the normal perameters of rational thought, i would expect to be ostricized by my peers, and deservedly so. How about a step ladder/colostomy bag dispenser? Or a baby changing mat/lawn mower combo? Am i the only person not on Prozac here?

Great idea, easy to do...


LovelyMommaJilla on Jan 15, 2009:

I'll do it!


DIY Maven on Jan 15, 2009:

I used a paper punch when I did my paper clip shade, but I'm thinking a small drill or dremel would be perfect for making those random holes all over a heavy duty paper shade. Although, for durablity, a plastic shade might be better...? If you do make it, please post pics!!


LovelyMommaJilla on Jan 15, 2009:

I MUST make this!


 


I have needed a cool way to hang all of my cheapie/costumey chandelier and dangly spanglys! I just can't see putting them in with my real jewelery AND the little rubbermade drawer thingy on my dresser is an EYESORE.


 


COOL!
