Job's tears and vintage metal

A few years ago I found a strand of Job's tears seeds on a string at a small local market in Luang Prabang, Laos. The seeds are the most subtle shade of light blue-grey, their texture is smooth and shiny. I've been wondering what to make of them, and pairing it with a vintage metal crescent seemed the perfect solution.
Of couse my cat Mimi was on hand to help with the decision...
