I toyed with the idea of taking a proper vintage chandelier and then ripping the guts out to use it for this purpose. In my minds eye, it would have been great but then I realized they don't grow cute vintage chandeliers on trees. In my searches I stumbled upon this little iron number on ebay for less than $30. Sold! Should I find that perfect chandy sitting the garbage one day, I won't feel too bad for demoting this one. Until then, it does nicely. Don't you think?
We hung it quickly to add a little bit of pretty to the backyard. Still a ways to go but its coming along piece by piece. (I know it needs to be hung lower but I'm just too lazy to fix it now.)
There are much better examples of the candelier on the interwebs. Im already drawn to the electrified versions so this fixture stalking should come as no surprise. Take a look.

So are you with me on this fascination? Do you have one of them yourself?
Now if I could only figure out how to light the damn thing without pouring hot wax all over myself.
