No ground on my chandelier
My girlfriend moved and I took down her antique chandelier. I thought there was a copper grounding cable, but unless it fell off, I think there was only a hot and a neutral (out of lampwire). I've seen other discussion of this topic, I apologize if this is redundant, but its not entirely clear to me what the solution is.
My chandelier is made out of metal, mostly bronze. It connects to the brace in the ceiling with a hollow screw, fairly standard.
I think the chandelier may have been grounded by a grounding screw, to the metal supporting brace. Does this makes sense? My understanding is that I can bend a hook in the end of the bare copper ground in my ceiling and connect this to the grounding screw? I'm a bit uncomfortable with this, I really don't understand how this grounds my chandelier.
The other option I've seen is adding a grounding wire to my chandelier? Which is fine, I can borrow the ground from the chandelier it is replacing. I'm not sure I understand where to attach it however.
I know which of my wires are the hot and neutral, I know my wiring in the ceiling meets code, I'm not worried about it melting, I know my brace will support my chandelier - I believe I have these things covered.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.
