My solid brass chandelier has a broken arm. There's a fracture that goes almost halfway through the arm. I don't know how long it's been there, could be a 100 years or just a month. Do you think it's better to do something about it, or just wait and see if it breaks? Is repairing it easier or more difficult while the candle arm is still attached? Adding now this I forgot to mention: The chandelier arm has a dozen mozzarella stick -sized crystals hanging off it, so there's that weight and a candle it has to support. The damage is in the upper corner.
