No attic, tongue and groove ceiling - Need a light solution!

Remodeling and need some help! We are trying to get pendant lights above the island, but the only overhead light in the kitchen is offset. We initially thought we could just jog the existing light over, but turns out we'll need 2-3 pendants (island is roughly 4' x 6 3/4'). We'd rather not cut into the ceiling, but are having a hard time conceptualizing a solution. Track lighting may be an option, but the pendants I've seen online all seem too small. We are looking for larger task lights (cone or globe maybe). There is wire just hanging above from the beam above the island (that's how we found- just chillin' inside a brick column that housed double ovens). We thought we may be able to fashion something coming out of the drywall above (maybe on a steel arm), but again... we want it to look nice/intentional. We are working with an electrician and need to figure this out within the next week or two. Anyone else deal with this or just have an eye for design and want to help? Have pictures of your own solutions? Crafty electrical solutions? Recommendations?

Thanks in advance!
