Earring design with mock ring

Just fooling around with the bead in center of mock ring. The picots were elongated, and covered with beads before making the joins.
It seems to me, however, that ending with a chain didn't make the best situation for hiding ends. Maybe I could try climbing out of the mock ring with a small split ring, and end on the other side with a ring where I could hide the ends.
