Here’s some of what I gave away as beaded Christmas presents in addition to the O-rings I gave to coworkers. First are right angle weave pendants with a Japanese chevron in the middle. One side is squared and stiffened with red charlottes (the chevrons have a bit of red), and the other with green.
These are the classic 12-sided bead ball with sequins. My small modification, these use 15s bracketing two slightly cupped sequins facing each other (for dimension). These are intended as tsotchkes. If I wanted to use them as a pendant, I would put a soldered jump ring on a corner as I was working. The sequins would make it difficult-to-impossible to simply string this on a cord.
Other gifts were a vase with a herringbone drape, and one of my starfish.
