I bought a pack of Westinghouse zinc plated nipples in the lighting area of a hardware store, and used the 1 1/2" size pipe to attach the small bottom section of the fixture to the rest of the chandelier without using the big fat ball section. So now I can have either a fat chandelier with the ball, or a slim chandelier without it. I did get some shades that I'm using as well but chandelier still looks old fashioned elegant without them. The shades I'm using now are silky pearl colored when the lights are off, but when the lights are on the seams show up dark brown, the exact same color as the bronze fixture, so there again a different look just turning on the lights. Just thought it was fun to be able to switch up the appearance a bit. Also worth mentioning, the white parts that look like candlesticks are ceramic, not plastic. I agree with other reviewers that installation is a pain due to some minor design flaws, but now that the work is done... kinda like having a baby. It's worth it.
