Island light on sloped ceiling

The women have spoken and this is the light they want over the island.

This lighting fixture

The problem is that the ceiling has a pretty steep slope (about 5/12) going in the wrong direction so one chain starts a couple inches higher than the other. It also will mean the chains are closer together at the top than the bottom. I'm sure I can adjust and fine tune chain length, but will there be a problem with the box cover/escutcheon being at an angle? Would it be better to box it out with a box that brings the escutcheon level?

Anyone ever done this?

Turn the base so the chains are level instead of one above the other.

Hi, I doubt there will be a problem with the fixture canopy as long as the box is flush with ceiling.

You could remove a few links from one side to make it level.
