I bought 2 lampshades to make a chandelier! I would like to fix them together, so that they hang side by side above my dining table. I want to make a system of rail or "plastic tape" drill two holes to let the wire of each suspension. What material should I use and how to fix this system to the ceiling?
Aluminum chopsticks could do the trick: they are easy to work and drill. Steel cables will be able to cross them to give a more modern aspect to your suspension.
Give free rein to your creativity since you have chosen to build your own luminaire.
For fasteners, it all depends on the nature of your ceiling. Use specific wall anchors for drywall and ensure that the total weight of your suspension can be supported by your ceiling.
Remember that the casing of your luminaire must be grounded (green-yellow wire).
