I read other reviews and decided I would order this pendant. It certainly isn't a typical mini pendant, it is larger than you think, and just dazzling. If you use a needle nose pliers to attach the crystals they do not come off, hold the lamp in your lap, side you are working on facing up, slide the metal fastner in hole, pinch close with pliers, bend the other end with pliers, insert in hole in lamp, bend with pliers and pinch close. It still took me 2 hours per pendant, but the crystals did not come off. Also, it is true, the ground wire is not marked as it should be, it is the one with writing on it. Also, make sure you measure exactly the length you need, when you pull the wire it does not go back to the original length. This is the only draw back. Also, you cannot use energy saving bulbs, you need the regular bulbs for enough light. Overall, I love these, they are reasonable and fit perfectly the look I wanted above my kitchen island. This would also be big enough over a nightstand. Thanks Overstock for a great product at a great price.
