Many people do not realize that 95% of all lamp shades are constructed of a metal frame. There is, in fact, a thick metal wire that supports the fabric on the shade and gives the shade support and rigidity. This makes the lamp shade the perfect "fixture" for embellishing with magnetic crystals and specifically, magnetic chandelier garland. During the holidays, normally "bland" shades can be instantly dressed up to express holiday sparkle and style. MagTrims® various styles of Holiday Garland add an extra bit of holiday flare!
