This item's photo is beautiful. I bought it, knowing from prior reviews it required assemly. What I did not know is that it has no assembly instructions, AND the crystals (61) are intended to be attached to the flat black metal frame, with bright silver pins about 1-1/4" long, by inserting the pins through the metal/crystal/metal, and then wrapping the silver pin around and around. I confirmed this through the manufacturer, who also confirmed I could not just glue the crystals in place. It would have looked like something I assembled in the garage. It's a shame, because the picture is beautiful, just NOT what it would have looked like in my dining room.
