No Power to New Chandelier and Switches?

I installed a chandelier and caused a short which tripped the breaker, 2 times. I already know why the short was caused and I fixed it, but now the 2 switches (3 way switches) to the chandelier have no power and neither does the chandelier wires. The outlets that are connected to the same breaker do work. Any ideas? Thanks.

Shorting out wires and swtiches like this can damage the wires in your home. You could have wire damage or even a loose connection now that is causing the current to not flow through the wires in your home. You are going to need a volt meter and do some tracing of the wires to find out where the current stops flowing through the wires and repair this area. It could be a junction in the home or even the connections of the two wires in a domino that is your problem. If you can't find the short in the wires then it may be necessary to call in a professional to help you trace the problem in your home.

after some trouble shooting, the main 3 way switch went bad/burnt(?)... changed the switch and solved the issue.

I am afraid there is something wrong with the fixture, throwing your breaker. Could be install or a short with the Chandelier.
