Need Help making a lamp out of an old glass wine bottle
I have an old glass wine bottle and I want to make a lamp out of it
I started off drilling a 3/8" (1/8 IPS) for the cord to go through (I know there are bottle kits out there but I think they look tacky with the cord coming out of the socket shell)
Any way I know how to assemble a lamp as I have done it many times before, and I am very familiar with fixture wiring
So my one and only question is can the SPT-1 (18/2) cord be in sand?
I want to put colored sand in the bottle (To weigh it down and to look better) and I am going to be putting a pipe (3/8" 1/8 IPS) through the bottle and there will be a cord bushing in the hole so very little cord is going to be directly in the sand
I am going to be using the special craft sand not the regular ol' Sand (Very fine particles) I just want to know if that would be OK to do
I think it is but I just want to make sure
