Short Wire On Chain Light Fixture

What is the easiest solution for extending a wire on a chained light fixture without it looking bad, having wire nuts showing or diffrent colored wire attached together.

I need better explanation of what you are attempting. Perhaps a picture will help.
Wire nuts shouldn't matter as they must be in a box where you can't see them.

I want the light fixture to be lower from the ceiling, and I have enough chain, but not enough wire to reach the wire in the ceiling from the desired length. If I extend the wire from the end then halfway you'll see some wire nuts sticking out next to the chain.

Wirenuts are not allowed in the middle of a run. You'd need to replace the wire. Many times there is a splice box on the chandelier you can go back to.

A picture of the chandelier would help us...... How-to-insert-pictures.

I think I figured what you have. If it is something like this with a chain then you can't extend the wire. You must replace it with one that is long enough.
