You can make up a "switch loop" in the box in the ceiling,in other words pull a 14/2 or 12/2 depending on the amp rating of the breaker that supplies power to the circuit.From the box in the ceiling to where you want the switch on the wall,hopefully in a cavity in the said wall using a fish tape.Sometimes I have had to make a small hole in the wall close to the ceiling to get at the fish tape.
Then the connections at the box are incoming L1 black is tied to black wire of the switch loop,then the white wire of the switch loop is marked with black tape because it is now hot also.The white wire with the black tape marking then goes on the gold terminal of the light.In the wall switch the white must be marked with the black tape also,then connect the two wires in the wall box to the toggle switch.
