Extending chandelier wire

3 months ago

I just bought a used chandelier that has a wire that is just a little too short to work with comfortably in the box in the ceiling. It makes it up into the box but there is only a couple of inches of wire to work with when connecting the wires. Is it acceptable to splice in a piece of wire a few inches long as long as the splice is contained inside the electrical box? Almost like a pigtail? thanks.
