Designed alongside the One Gallon Floor Lamp and using similar utility-oriented parts, this pendant light replaces the standard pull chain switch and exaggerates the simple task of turning on a light. The full assembly process takes about 2 hours to complete. Steps include drilling a hole in the acrylic ball shade, wiring the lamp, and installing the moving strap switch. The parts cost a little over 100 USD on average.
