Hi All,
What I a wondering is am I able to use my current upstairs wiring setup which is all juntion box fittings (all rooms 1 switch to one light) what I want to do is add 2 pendant lights in a room (1 switch to 2 lights)
Am I able to go from the current juntion box light cable straight to the pendant rose and then using a legnth of 1.5mm t&e out of the pendant to the other pendant?
Or do I scrap my junction box and feed cable straight to pendant then over to 2nd pendant.
Any good advice is appreciated

I have browsed wiki and various electrical sites , to which I have found that I can go from a junction box fitting to the pendant but not anything to show me how to link up the second pendant.
how can I do this

For the diagram See WIKI>Electrics>Lighting>single way lighting and scroll down to single way lighting connecting 2 lamps using the loop in method. However also see below

take a live from the S/L section of the 1st ceiling rose (which will be where your switched live cable is connected to which comes from your switch) to the S/L section of the 2nd ceiling rose and a Neutral from the N section off the 1st to the N section of the 2nd ceiling rose.
