This product comes with a standard 8 ft cord that can be shortened upon installation. This lamp is 120 volt which means it wires straight to a j-box and this is when you would shorten it to fit your application.
I must have looked at hundreds of mini pendants ranging in price from $60 to $400. This was one of the prettiest. When lit, this light gives off a lovely warm amber glow. Like Karl R., I too was disappointed with the black cord. I searched for ways to cover or replace the cord, but was unsuccessful so I installed all three as is. I was pleasantly surprised with the result. To think I almost spent $1200 on three mini pendants! Lighting Universe is a great resource with a huge selection.
The pendant lights turned about to be great. When it's not lit, the color of the glass looks a bit dark brown, which matches my kitchen cabinet perfectly. When it's lit, it looks just like the picture with a nice and warm yellow/orange color. The shipping was very fast and good. I'm very happy about this purchase.
The light fixture looks great, however, one small drawback... the black wire that it hangs from... looks so, well, workbench quality. I solved that by ordering and installing some ornamental tubing that matched the brushed nickel finish that covers the wire. Looks fabulous now.
I have had these pendants (6 of them) for 2 years now - they look WONDERFUL! Go very well with earth tones. The online picture is what they look like lit - unlit they are more brown.
Anyway, I am back on the site ordering 3 more because the 3 over my island are now not working...the wiring into the porcelain is actually burnt out...had an electrician look at and he thought that was pretty strange almost as if that wiring wasn't meant to support the wattage of these lights. I am hoping this was just a bad batch because otherwise they are a great value. The 3 that I don't use nearly as much seem to be doing okay - so this was clearly more of an issue for lights that will be used frequently.
