Not exactly sure of your question but it sounds like you are trying to mount a heavy chandelier where there is no support. You need to use a box to mount the light and you'll need to run the wires to it as well as a switch location. Determine where you want to mount it. Get a heavy fan box like this one...

You'll need to find a source of power. Either an existing circuit or run a new circuit from the panel.
