Chandelier with 14 cables, whats the best terminal for the wires?

So I have this very nice chandelier from our friends in China, only it arrived with no terminal to set up the wires to connect to the mains.

I was thinking of ring terminals on each wire and connecting them using a metal stud mounted in an enclosure in the loft. Its a bit fiddly but its how my kiln elements are connected and I know they are super secure. Can anyone suggest a easier or better way, thanks

Hi Flameport, crimp closed end connectors seem like a good solution, thanks

I use 5 or 8 terminal lever wagos, linked together if needbe , or if the wires are small enough i suppose you could bunch 2 in each hole assuming its minimal lamp load.
Push in type, i have seen with 8 or more holes, but you would need to tin the wires before pushing them in
All would need containing in a box with cable restraint and accessible though.
