This is exquisite. Yes, you need a little patience in following the directions. They could be better explained. But, once you get it, it's worth every penny!!!
It is a beautiful chandelier. It took some time to figure out and assemble. The design was too ornate for my humble dining room with a standard high ceiling, so eliminated bottom danglers and connecting danglers. With no danglers, the bottom of the chandelier is about 6 feet from the floor. The light bulbs make a big difference in their look. I used traditional standard CLEAR light bulbs for a sparkling effect. The plain ceiling medallion was also installed.
