The green st. croix pendant came with a white cord which did not look good. In general the lamp looked better online than in person

We needed a pair of pendant lights for our kitchen remodel,
they would hang side by side above the sink, we loved the hand made glass color and design from this manufacturer, we ordered the two and they were promptly back ordered, we waited weeks and finally received ONE lamp! we then waited another week and a half and received the second light, unfortunately they did not match at all, the color on the second lamp was a completely different shade, and the hanging hardware was also completely different!, of course we had already hung the first lamp, so we tried our best to find a match, (this order was through Lamps Plus) we sent pictures blah blah blah, they offered to send us another one or two to see if they would match, but we did not like the new color or hardware and decided to try another style altogether, boy are we stupid! but we loved this manufacturers lamp styles, so, we ordered two more in a different style (same manufacturer, boy are we stupid!) and received them promptly from Ylighting, the problem, again, these are basically hand made apparently, and the glass varies, one is very clear and nice, the other is cloudy, and they don't hang level, they kind of sag and are uneven because, they are hand made, all in all we have settled for our hand made sagging unmatched pendant lights and we laugh about it, life's too short, but they do match our amber drawer knobs nicely! and the rest of the kitchen looks dandy, Ylighting did a fine job with our order, but beware this manufacturer, especially if you are buying in pairs.

<p>This product is everything I wanted it to be. Beautiful vintage feel - the amber color is warm and toasty and casts a beautiful light. I placed 3 in a row over my 6 foot long granite island countertop. They light up the room on or off! My only wish is that the bulbs were set slightly further in so as to not pop out from under. I'm working on finding some "old fashioned" looking bulbs as I'm sure they'd complete the look. Also, know that they aren't perfect... and won't all hang exactly the same if you are hanging them side by side. In my opinion this adds to the vintage look but if you're a stickler for absolute perfection this isn't the light for you. Oh and by the way... I must mention, Croft & Little has amazing service and pricing too!</p>

<p>I purchased 3 of the St. Croix lights in Celadon (green) to go over a kitchen island for house I was building. They are PERFECT! The quality and thickness of the seeded glass was a wonderful surprise, given that I had never seen this light other than online / catalogs. The St. Croix lights are very unique in design and are a huge part of the focal point of my new kitchen. Each light was packaged / boxed seperately and packed to ensure there was no chance of damage in transit. I am thrilled with the lights and the service from Croft & Little!!! </p>

<p>The light looks very good in my kitchen. Easy to install. Unique.</p>

<p>The seeded glass had a nice handmade look, but the workmanship on the rest of it wasn't great. The lighting components were attached crookedly so the light doesn't hang straight and there are chips in the metal rim and top on the glass. </p>

Purchased two of these fixtures in the celadon color. They do not match precisely, but that is part of the appeal; an indication that they are hand made. Fixtures were installed in front of a large window over a kitchen sink and provide an organic counterpoint to all the steel appliances prevalent in most of today's kitchens. Experienced some glare with standard light bulbs in this fixture and switched to smaller diameter silver bowl light bulbs with excellent results.

It took my fiance and I a few days to choose which Jamie Young pendant we wanted. We are both so glad we chose St. Croix. It gave our kitchen that extra thing to make it complete. Every guest that comes over - lets us know they love the light we have hanging above our sink.
