Funny idea!

Hang crystals from a bangle bracelet?

Ok so mine was made on a whim at work, and ended up hanging under a small nook in our dorm bathroom, but...

I made mine out of:
-a battery operated fake flame tealight
-an frosted votive holder
-part of a broken wind chime with a glass top.

The chime broke at work so we were going to throw it out, but I  snatched it because of the glass top. They're inexpensive, and very ornate (ps I work at Hallmark.)

If you'd like to see some pictures, I could probably take a few :]

I know this was posted forever ago,(for all I know you've graduated by now!) but I have recently developed a love of  chandeliers so I thought I'd chime in here.

I have the most un-crafty suggestion: You could just buy one. (Blasphemy!!  Wink)
They have a bunch on ebay: http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=miniature+chandelier&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=m270.l1311&_odkw=re-ment&_osacat=0
And you can find them on dollhouse miniature websites.
They can range anywhere from $6(simple) to $125(very realistic and ornate)!!!

EXMAPLES: Cheap
Found here: http://www.dejouxminiatures.com/MH758---PLASTIC-CHANDELIER-P1803C0.aspx
There are other great chandeliers on this site worth checking out.
Price: $8.95 (without shipping)
http://www.dejouxminiatures.com/images/758.JPG

EXAMPLE: Ornate and Expensive
Its on ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.com/miniature-dollhouse-CIR-KIT-6-arm-CHANDELIER-CK3020_W0QQitemZ140270986960QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item140270986960&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1209|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318
Price: $124!! (and that's without shipping which is roughly $4)

There are plenty more, with prices varying between these two. I just chose these to show the two extremes.

If your getting one that lights up be sure to check out how it is powered to figure out how to get it to work in you locker.

By now you are probably over it already, but just in case.
