An assortment of glue-on bails are available and would make a good conversion for your jade leaf if there is a flat spot where a bail can be attached. If you choose this method for changing your focal into a pendant, use a strong glue, such as epoxy which is ideal for gluing non-porous surfaces.
Wrapping wire around the jade leaf in a decorative manner and then fashioning a bail from the wire is also an option for converting a focal piece into a pendant. For inspiration view the ''Wrapping Stones and Beads with Half-Round Wire'' how-to video.
