What always varies is the something special that makes a custom lamp fascinating and tells a story. Many customers trust Johnny with their treasures and ask him to turn them into a very special piece. Recently, a patron asked him to construct a lamp using a large turtle shell. The results were stunning: the turtle shell itself was set on a handsome mahogany base finished in bronze, topped by an oatmeal-colored linen shade and crowned by a brown jade finial.

Perhaps one of the arms broke and needed to be redone, Or the center ball needed replacing or bigger cups were required. Simple changes can make a huge difference. With the passing of time, the wires holding crystals in place can be broken with wear. New brass pins can hold the crystals in place once they are "re-pinned" or twisted into place. Once that's been done on older crystals, it's very difficult to tell that such work has been done because the new work blends into the piece so well.
