What to do with extra length on tennis bracelet?

Any ideas of how you'd convert an inch of tennis bracelet (I'm planning on buying one that's an inch too long) into a pendant / necklace, or another piece of jewelry?

I already wear this Y-style necklace as my everyday necklace:

So even though it'd be simple to convert the extra length to a Y drop necklace I want to do something different.

I want to make something I can layer with the above, wearing on a shorter chain than my other necklace so it lays higher on my neck.

Maybe something like this:

Any ideas? It will be one inch approx of .04ct stones (that's approx 10 stones).

I'd be willing to do something other than a necklace too if I had the right idea!

Maybe a pinky ring?

Or diamond-drop earring jackets for my diamond studs? So the diamond studs in the piercing, with a half inch dangle . earring jacket like this (but much shorter) trailing down from each ear?

Depending on the size of the individual stones, you could do a 1/2-3/4 eternity sized for middle or index to pair with the bracelet (I’m not a fan of pinky rings).

I like the idea of jackets for earrings, but I don’t think there’s enough stones to achieve adequate length. Some other ideas (assuming labour cost is not outrageous):

- long drop earring jackets (so basically a length of plain chain ending at the jawbone level) with perhaps a horizontal bar of 5 stones, or with 5 stones set as a single round shape

- asymmetrical earring jackets (ten stones in a single line ending in a pearl on one side, just a single pearl on the other, worn with your studs).

- pendant&earring set: 4/6 stones set as a bar necklace like in your inspiration pic, with a pair of bar earring studs with the remaining stones (2/3 stones in each earring).

- bar earring studs: 5 stones on either side in a bar earring stud (I think Tiffany has something like this if I’m not mistaken)

- DBTY necklace or bracelet (but I’m not a fan of DBTYs so this wouldn’t be my no 1 choice).
