i'm strying to bend this detailed ornamentation into a complete circle, like in this chandelier
What's the best way to achieve this?

The simplest way is to use the Simple Deform modifier in Bend mode on Z (make sure that you've applied the rotation of your object):
Another way is to use a Curve modifier with a circle as Object, but it won't be as quick as Simple Deform. Of course if the shape was not a circle it would be the best solution
