If you are looking for something elegant, easy to install and without a big price tag, this is definitely worth considering. Customers who have bought it for their master bedroom, sitting room, foyer or even bathroom give positive feedback for the effects it gives. This gorgeous circular shape chandelier is of steel and crystal. The crystals don't shine like high-end crystals though. The bronze color frame surely will give a rustic and vintage feel! Its height is 20" and width is 12 1/2", with crystal pendants.

It requires one Clear A19 Medium Incandescent light bulb which is included. You can also change it into an energy saving one yourself. Its power source is hardwire. Although it comes with 6 feet of hanging chain, you can easily shorten the overall height of the fixture by removing links of the chain.

The voltage is 120 volts and wattage is 60.

The installation method is surface-mounted. You will have to install from the chain. The rest is standard. So even for someone with basically no electrical background, it is easy to hang if you follow the instructions closely.


Plug in or Hardwired Single Light Crystal Teardrop Mini Chandelier 14" long X 7" at its Widest Point

It is not easy to find a fixture that is plugged in and this is a great find! It also only requires a single light bulb. The polished chrome frame features clear glass drop beads that catch the light and add a shimmery accent to your room. It works wonders for any rooms especially the kitchen, living room and dining room. The clear drop glass beads will complement the room with a light show!

Assembly is required. It comes with instructions, extra crystal beads, a 10-foot chain and 15-foot wire length for installation, and it can be either hardwired or plugged in. It uses a single 40-watt incandescent bulb (not included), and it measures 6-3/4 inches in diameter and 14-3/4 inches tall. The item weighs 6.3 pounds.

A customer offers this valuable tip: to make changing bulbs and cleaning the glass drops easier, you can add necklace clasp hardware or lobster clasps (available at craft stores) to the lanyards connecting the top two tiers. When cleaning, you can disconnect at the clasp and spray the connected tiers down in the sink.

Before buying, note that the drops and tiers do not come pre-assembled. Therefore it is time consuming to put them up but it is not difficult.

It's also available in a larger version, and both sizes of teardrop chandeliers are also available in black and amber glass versions.

DIY Home Improvement Projects Can Start with Light Fixtures

Light fixtures like chandeliers are easy to get noticed for the beautiful difference added to home improvement. If you are not too ambitious, it is manageable.

If you choose to do it yourself, first, you will need to find a frame to start your design with. It can be a metal basket, old lamp shade, the front frame of an electrical fan, or a tiny bird cage shape kind of frame. For embellishments, you can use some vintage looking keys and chains, faux crystal beads, porcelain cups, wine bottles, miniature glass bottles, metal forks, knives, or even graters etc to decorate the frame.

Then you will have to think of the wiring and the lighting of course. White Christmas lights are a good and easy choice.

If you have spare items at home that you think you can use, that's great. Why not gather them together and throw in a bit of creativity and time? You may be amazed at the result!

I hope the videos below will help you get some ideas for light fixtures that are compatible with your home décor.
