wire two light sconces from one wall switch

I have a large "builders" single wall sconce over the bath vanity. You know, the ugly 5 light hollywood type w/oversized bulbs. I want to have two separate decorative sconces so I can put one over each sink and put a cabinet-shelving in-between. It does not matter if they are controlled by the same wall switch and I do not want to rip out drywall (switch is 5 feet away and not accessable).
I have some knowledge of basic wiring and I know this is not too difficult to do but I want it to be right and have not done this before.
I can easily connect one light but how do I connect the first sconce to the second sconce safely?
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
