Linking the second row to the first rosette
5 components of the 2nd row are attached one by one around the first rosette.
Turn the formed 2 rows upside-down, so it sits on the table like a bowl. Check that all hooks are joined correctly.
Closing the Puzzles Lamps

Closing Standard Round Puzzles Lamps
Keep joining the others components in the same way until the round lampshade is complete with 30 components.
4th row narrows the sphere and the 5h row closes the rounded puzzles lamp.

When the lamp is composed, check that all curved edges cover all the straight edges. Check each row and if a mistake has occurred, first check that all front of the components are placed outward. It might be easier if you mark front or the back side of the components, so they can be easily distinguished.
Lighting up Puzzles Lamps - Cable Installation

Once any lampshade  has been assembled, there are several ways to light it up.
An easy alternative to enlight the Puzzles Lamps is with battery power LED spot light, in particular when no electicity is avalable. Puzzles Lamps can also be lighted up with LED String lights or with a regular ceiling cable lampholder.

To check the position of the light bulb, you can unhook/open a component io the side of the lamp.
Please note that is preferable to use only LED light bulbs. Do not use regular light bulbs in particular with small size lampshade where the components may touch the lamp bulbs.
