The larger pendant shown in the above photo is a variation on the basic pattern. It's begun the same as an earring, then an extra round is added, with chains of about 9 or 10 ds each. The small rings are 3-3. The dangling rings have a few extra ds than the ones on the earring - 10 on each side instead of 8, and an extra ds between beads on the center dangle.
I called it "Dream" because I think it somewhat resembles the hangings that are called dream catchers. Anyway, this set is worked in my own HDT, size 20.
