First off, I am NOT an electrician, but I have guts. I just hung a European chandelier and hooked it up to 110 voltage. It works, but it doesn't put out as much light as it would with 220. A more elegant solution would be to take the lamp to a shop and get it rewired. If you want to do it yourself, I believe you can buy all the necessary parts at Home Depot.

Search Google for "light bulb adapters" you will need E-14 to E-12 adapters, one word of caution though, these types of candelabras have very small wiring and using higher wattage bulbs could be a fire hazard so I would recommend using LED or florescent bulbs!

What are chandelier pendants?

Hmm...I'm not familiar with that combination. Do you mean ceiling lights that are not true chandeliers and pendants that have crystals? Let me know if this clarifies anything. Mini pendant lights by brands such as Corbett come in crystal and can often be mistaken for a chandelier. A chandelier such as one made by Hubbardton Forge has multiple arms that hold the lamps. A pendant light such as one made by Justice Design--you can imagine as a single drop earring--a single piece without arms. There's also a third option, the foyer light. Maybe the fixture is a foyer light. I'm pretty confident that what you are describing is actually a foyer light because it has arms like a chandelier but it is one unit, structured like a pendant. Foyer lights are tall and used for entryways. Compare your "chandelier pendant" to a foyer light by Kalco lighting. I bet that's what you are looking for.
