What is the advantage of this Wesley Crystal 6-Light Chandelier?
This six-light chandelier is adorned with dozens of clear crystal pieces in teardrop bead forms to allow the light to sparkle. The metallic surface has a pretty matte silver finish for added elegance to indoor decor. Assembly is required
This is a beautiful chandelier. I really like the style. It's different than a traditional crystal chandelier. Remember the pieces are glass but they are not cut crystals. It's simpler than a crystal chandelier but quite pretty in design. I'm sure it's made in China, but then I'm fairly confident that Pottery Barn's version of it is also made in China. I read all the reviews so I knew what to expect. It has a very flat silver color to it which makes the metal look like tin. I chose to spray paint it like others who bought it did. I sprayed it with Rustoleum's metallic spray paint - brushed nickel color. I don't have anything in my house that's oil rubbed bronze and that didn't seem to match the style of my house. So, I just went with the brushed nickel color and it turned out really pretty. The paint gave it a bit more depth and dimension. The silver color it came with just looked too flat. With such a pretty chandelier it needed a little help with the color. That really was the only down side to this purchase. It required a little more work to get it where I wanted it to be. The only other minor issue was that I found it hard to find the directions. They were set inside a smaller box labeled "C" so I had to open all the boxes to find it. Other than that, it was fairly straightforward to put together. I would recommend hanging the lowest rung of glass first and working your way up and out. I cleaned off each piece before hanging it with a rag dampened with glass cleaner. I also recommend putting the thinner glass pieces in first then going back to place the larger pieces. It was easy until I got to the top. It was hard to get the crystals in under the top rim and then hooked. I'm short and had to use a ladder to get to the chandelier to begin with so that was challenging for me. If I had to do it over I would recommend hanging the highest row of glass pieces before hanging the whole chandelier and wiring. I don't think it wouldn't be too heavy to hang that way, and it would be a lot easier to deal with the rim. I hope this review helps someone. I'm very happy with my purchase
