Pendant & Pendent

With an A – (n.) a hanging ornament, such as a piece of jewelry.
With an E – (adj.) describing something in the act of hanging, like a pendulum.
So, yes, by definition pendants are pendent. I know, it's confusing. And remember not to confuse them with a pennant, either.
Good luck!
