I've just fitted a new pendant light fitting using the existing electrical source. However, when I turn the main power on, the lights are on even though the light switch is off. When I put the light switch on, it blows the fuse!
Paula, somewhere you have some wires crossed or connected incorrectly. Without understanding electricity and wiring, chances are that any additional work you do on it, will make matters worse. It is possible that the wires are crossed before they get to the switch, and that previously some creative wiring took care of that.
Before it gets too expensive, call an electrician. Most likely he will just look at it, chcukle, reverse two connections, and everything will be fine.
The trick to avoid large call-out charges is to call an electrician BEFORE things get too complicated.
