I started with assorted spoons:

The spoons can be put in a vise grip and partially bent, then cut with a hack saw.  Finish bending after cutting to make a loop for the chain:

I always use E-6000 glue for such projects.  The proper way to use E-6000 is to apply the glue to the area, then slide your item onto the glued area.  It creates a better bond to slide the item rather than simply placing it onto the glued area.
Some of the items I glued into the spoons were earrings with the backs removed.  Some of the other bits were small brooches.  The pinbacks can be easily removed with wire clippers.

The pendants would look fine on a simple black cord or silver ball chain.  A more elaborate beaded chain could be used too.  The possibilities are endless!
