Definitely good advice.The key with a crystal chandelier is "take it easy." From experience:
• Unpack everything using great care to ensure nothing becomes damaged (its surprisingly easy to scratch a crystal). Spread out your parts in logically-organized piles.
• Ensure every single piece is present. The last thing you want is to find out half a dozen minute wire clips are missing just as you're about to finish the install.
• Pay attention to layout-patterns as per the instructions. I cannot stress this enough.
• Double check to make sure you have all the bulbs.
• If it takes a stupidly long-time to install, charge accordingly.
For the right price I'll hang crystals all day long.I consider hanging crystals as a non electrician job. I would rather poke my eyes out with a stick than unpack and hang all of those crystals. I would not be that good at it either. I would wire and hang the light and sub the hanging of crystals to someone, probably someone female. Most men I have worked with seem to lack the patience and skills to deal with this well.
