I have no idea what they originally were, but I love the shape of them.  What is the material?  I also thought finials.  I thought it would be neat to use them to decorate the ends of curtain rods.  Also, I would be tempted to use them to make decorations for a Christmas tree, or mobile - paint them, or podge something on them, etc.  How do they reflect light?  Perhaps they can be used to make a garden decoration/windchime, or to decorate a light fixture?

The orbs and corresponding parts are a heavy glass with bubbles trapped in the glass. They are about 4" in diameter and the rods(plastic and hollow) each hold 5 orbs and/or those other shapes. There are white rubber washers between the glass parts. The end caps are silver metal.

That never stop a Craftster before!!! Smiley Wink
I don't think there is anything wrong with having the wire run along the side. I'm sure it will be nice anyway.

Wait, the tubes are hollow? Why can't you run the cord down the tube?

Wow, how the heck did you come up with that?  they certainly look just like the last two pictures on that page, at least in shape. 

GB, you definitely need to keep us updated on what you decide to do with these...
