Talking Chandelier to plug in???

Can I convert the wiring on a chandelier to make it into a hanging lamp to be plugged into an outlet?

Do the wires currently go into the ceiling into an electrical j-box? How is it switched now?

I live in a condo, concrete ceiling, no electrical boxes on the ceiling. I wanted to know if I buy a chandelier can I just run a chain with the cord down to an outlet to plug in.

No. Buy something that is already made up the way you like.

Otherwise, possibly a lighting specialty store can convert something for you.

You still have to have a way to fasten it so that it does not fall over.
