CLUE for FIRST KEY
There are two parts in this puzzle. The part with the colored letters is very easy.
The second part with the box shapes is something you have to do after the rest of the puzzle, and this part is harder. For this part, you have to also use the necessary things from the Starter Puzzle. If you can figure this part out, you are really close to finding the First Key!
Some things to consider when you look at the letters: What's missing? And why is one of the colors not shown in the letters? Could it be because this color's message is not in the letters, but in the second part with the box shapes? Maybe the box shapes are trying to tell you something you need to know about the key that goes with that color?
There is more than one kind of line! Do you see something that's similar to what you saw in the Starter Puzzle, and also to something in the lamp?
One more thing to think about: When I say "disorderly", twisting", etc.,am I referring to something besides these letters in the puzzle, or the loose strings in the lamp? Could there be something else important that fits that description?
P.S. To save much unnecessary confusion - "NEXT" does not mean "FIRST". Maybe you should read it as "NEXT TO LAST".

This clue, along with the Starter Puzzle, shows you exactly where to start. It's a certain place in the lamp. I wonder if people are seeing where to start? The technique you use for the second part of this clue is the same technique you use to find the First Key, although this clue has elements that the First Key doesn't have. Remember I said that each key is represented by its own color. If you are working on something in the lamp that has more than one color of the same size crystal bead, you are jumping way too far ahead! Each key has its own area in the lamp!

If you are still looking where to start, here's a hint. .If you look at the First Key Clue you'll see a double pattern. Not exactly the same shape, but very similar. Do you see where this double pattern occurs in the lamp? The Starter Puzzle shows the same kind of pattern, but the first clue makes it more specific. When you find this pattern, that is where to focus.

Above I have re-posted the image for Clue 1. I have made a very slight correction to the colored boxes in this clue. As you can see, everything remains the same except for one thing. in the 10th row,, where there are two colored boxes right next to each other, the RED and GREEN colored boxes have switched places. This is the way they are supposed to be. When I made Clue 1, I somehow inadvertently got those two switched.....It is really supposed to be GREEN on the LEFT and RED on the RIGHT.
I am also posting a black-and-white image here, with a hint for the boxes. This one does reflect the correct order on these two boxes in the 10th row. . I posted it below here, so you can compare.
I apologize for that oversight. It wouldn't have mattered a great deal in figuring out what the colored boxes say.
When I was making the clue on Microsoft Paint, I did it in only a couple hours one night, and I was having fun.. I didn't spend enough time double-checking I guess! These two boxes are right next to each other , so they're easy to miss. I am sure I didn't miss anything on the lamp, because I spent a lot of extra time triple-checking everything over and over. Besides, as I have said before, the individual keys use only one color at at time.
