Creating the lamp base is probably the most enjoyable part of the lamp making process. If you've chosen a clear container such as a wine bottle or canning jar, you can fill it with decorative materials. Marbles, pebbles, sand art, seashells, dried beans or buttons would all be good choices. Heavier materials will help to add weight to the lamp base, making it more stable. If you've chosen an opaque container, you can fill it with pebbles, sand, lead weights, coins or other heavy materials. If you are using a lamp kit which is designed to simply plug into the base, you can fill it before wiring it. However, if you are using individual components you may need to do the wiring step before filling the base.
When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
In earlier dates Tiffany lamps have been known to fetch thousands of dollars at auctions. There are plenty of takers for a Tiffany lamp at any given point of time. A Tiffany lamp being auctioned at charity functions is a common aspect.
