Several options....

1. Select a lamp that is mechanically the same, but with a longer life. Typically, these will be somewhat dimmer.

2. Use a lamp rated for a higher voltage.

3. Add a dropping resistor in series with the lamp to drop the voltage.

On the Pendulum bulbs, see if there are any markings to give bulb info. Typically, it will be a 2, 3 or 4 digit number somewhere, and we can see if there are alternatives.
