    Looks good. I have seen variations on this using the brass pole itself to carry current to the blub(s). In this case, you could use plastic tubing, or even a straw...!

    The shades can also be made from paper circles cut with a hole punch. Just cut a slit in them so they can be formed into a cone/shade shape. I did a few like this on non-functioning building lights.
