Over the eye lighting can be characterized by a single pendant or a combination of mini pendants. Single industrial pendant lighting is a large single stand, 15 to 22 inches long, suspended from the ceiling. Mini pendants are smaller and typically divided into patterns of three or more lights for a dramatic look. Mini-pendants are often made of opaque glass in colors like amber or cobalt. All pendants are open at the bottom to provide light concentration and easy bulb change. They are attached to the ceiling of a luminary box or track and are suspended by a rod or chain.
