Rated 5 out of 5 by blurlikesotong from Use a pillow when instlaling A tip I found on a different page of this website really helped me--place pillows underneath your installation area in case a glass drops fall down while you're working. This saved me on five occasions. Also, I started with the small drop on the lowest tier and alternated from there and I was left with two extra large drops. I'm not sure if I did it wrong of if it just seems like I did because there were extra drops. Maybe try planning out the alternation by playing with the formation on a table before you get going. Also, the needle-nose pliers method was confusing to me at first but here's how I would best describe it: Hold the glass drop near one of the installation holes and move either one of the L-shaped wires into the hole with your hand. Then grab the other L-shaped wire with the tip of the needle-nosed pliers and squirm your way, bending the wire, until you can get the second L-shaped side also up into the hole. Next use the pliers to straighten out any misshapen wires to make the glass drop hang evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy L. from Robert Abbey Bling Sconce Not a bad choice for an online purchase! I chose the bronze colour. They look great on my dark grey panelled wall flanking the flatscreen TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Gives the space the extra pizazz it needed. This fixture is modern and fun and was exactly what our bathroom needed. Time consuming, but easy assembly. Worth the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lorie M. from Pros: Gorgeous and Unique exquisitely well-crafted fixture. Cons: Tricky and Mysterious installation. The light arrived with some immediate confusion about whether contents might be missing when we received the box with a label that said 1 of 2 and only one box arrived. No worries, all there. Proceeded with the unwrapping of the 27 individually wrapped glass drops - instructions state to start on one end with large drops working from bottom tier up. With no small amount of painstaking effort and patience after 40 minutes I was able to use the suggested needle nose pliers to jam those wee hooks into the wee holes without dropping the glass drops - no easy feat! With two drops remaining I realize I have only small ones left. Assuming manufacture mistake, I studied the poorly drawn diagram of the fixture and could vaguely see from frontal sketch that perhaps I was supposed to start with a small drop not a large. Ugh. Not being emotionally able to attack the task again, I switched out bottom row to make one large drop available to finish top row. My fixture goes from small to large on bottom tier and large to small on top two, not intended design but only my eye seems perturbed by the lack of balance. I would suggest manufacturer have a more clear diagram or image of finished install as well as suggest specific wattage and size light bulb for best effect and to avoid glare effect of bulb in contact with glass drop. Placing light bulb is a tricky fit on the bottom - but then in the manufacturer's defense, it could be because my second tier is out of order making the bulb make contact with a large drop. Beyond those issues, placed on a background of high gloss deep navy paint it's a dazzling addition of bling to our "water closet."

Bling Sconce is rated out of 5 by 4.
Is it recommended to assemble the sconce with all of the crystals before it gets put on the wall, or is it better to wait until it is connected to the wall and then secure the crystals afterwards?
Thanks for your interest in this design. While the manufacturer does not specifically indicate that one way is better than another, it does seem as though it would be safest for the crystals to install them once the fixture is safely secured, that way they are not banging around and getting scuffed. Once the fixture is installed, get a steady ladder and affix each of the wires and glass globes to the body of the fixture using the metal pliers that come with the unit. There is also a pair of white gloves included to avoid getting any fingerprints on each of the glass droplets. These globes are extremely reflective and cast beautiful light patterns around the room. Cleaning is easy with a light, handheld feather duster or a microfiber cloth.
