wire the light fixture into an extension cord?
 
Is it really possible? My fixture is like a pot light and it is really pretty. Is it possible to take an old extension cord with 2 wires and make it a swag lamp?

All replies would be highly appreciated.

If the fixture was designed to be permanently mounted then it is not safe to do what you ask.
