        Is there a way to do this? Typically, I'd just install a swag hook into the drywall - but there is NO drywall or studs anywhere near where the light needs to hang, just a very large window (this room is built kind of like a greenhouse with glass panels). HELP! Thanks!

        It's hard to give advice that is worth something (for free) without seeing exactly what you have. Can you post a picture of what you have??

        Maybe a support piece between frames, or a chain from frame to frame and then swag the fixture off it?????

        There has to be something holding the whole thing up. There has to be support beams somewhere so just fashion a lot chains from that source to where you want the light to hang. That would be my guess.
