https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUq3buM115c you need to make sure the amperage is safe with the wire gauge you are using https://www.justanswer.com/electrical/68zk3-making-wiring-chandelier-11-sockets-15watt-130v-bulbs.html I suggest you get a book on electrical wiring and read it cover to cover before doing any wiring. Then you will know how things are done. You can get these books at home improvement stores or online.this one shows Daisy chaining the wires https://www.loveandrenovations.com/a-handmade-dining-room-light/ the first video is called octopus/star configuration

DIY Multi-Bulb Chandelier
Look on line or go to the library and learn some basics. Series, parallel, calculating load, what size wire for what loads, electrical safety, etc. It's all very simple, one you have a grasp of the basics. Please consider using LED bulbs. Long life, low power consumption, cool running, slightly more expensive but worth it. Save money, check dollar stores, consider rope lights or Christmas lights. Be creative!
