I've had an antique dental light fixture rewired for use in a guest bath. I want to hang the fixture from a 12' ceiling, but I don't like the look of chain. It weighs about 10 pounds... not very heavy, but not light either. I do like the simple look of just the cord, but the existing cord probably isn't strong enough (or safe). Anyone have a suggestion? Anyone know of a load-bearing 'sheath' that the cord run through? Thanks.
