Question multiple sockets floor lamp

Can anyone point to directions for wiring two seperate sockets in a floor lamp? The lamp is made of twigs covered with paper and about 5' tall. I would like to use two sockets one in the middle and one near the top.
Thanks

How do desire switching them? Do you have plans yet as to how you will run/hide the wires? Is there any way you could post a pix of your project? Worth a thousand words.

Question multiple sockets

The wires will be inside the lamp form. I plan to use an inline switch on the cord. As far as running the wires, This is one of my problems. I did consider a long threaded rod through 2 spiders. I usually use a spider to attach a single socket. However if I use two sockets I am confused as to the way to link them.

You would wire them in parallel. You would connect at one socket, or in a junction box somewhere.

multiple sockets

Thank you for the response but I am still confused. I know how to wire socket 1 (at the top) then the cord comes out and attachs to socket 2. My questions is, is it possible then to wire the out cord to the same contacts? It would seem to me that it would be too cumbersome. I was looking for a socket with a set of contacts for cords in and one for a cord out. Maybe I just don't understand the process very well. Can you help explain this to me?
Thanks
