alternative to swag chain

I've tried a number of ways to word a Google search but have been unable to find something I'm pretty sure exists: interlocking rods about a foot long. I've got a pendant lamp from Crate and Barrel that has a steel cable attached to the cord for support.

I want to swag it but don't want to reduce the length the cable allows, and a conventional chain would look lousy. I could do more steel cable but a long rod with hooks or loops at each end would be so simple. Anyone know what I'm talking about/looking for?

not a hollow threaded rod; I'm picturing more like a variation of a gatehook lock:

You could make one. Quarter inch brass rod threaded on each end, two quarter inch brass hooks with machine threads and two brass rod couplers.
