Custom made chandeliers-quality vs. quantity
It is true that custom made pieces tend to be more expensive than their counterparts, the prefabricated pieces. These counterparts are made in a factory for mass distribution at varying stores, such as home improvement stores, hardware stores, specialty light fixture stores and even some department stores. Pre-built fixtures are less expensive simply because they are mass produced using the same pattern and mold and normally are not handcrafted, but instead built on an assembly line by a machine. The quality can also be less in a prefabricated lighting fixture than custom built ones. Something to remember when designing your custom chandelier is that it is just that-custom.
