What To Do With Christmas Slice Beads

I call all the beads that are simple, chunky slices off my canes slice beads. I mean, technically, most of the beads I make are slice beads but a lot of them get other treatments after the slice. Not so my slice beads. And this fall I made a whole bunch of Christmas and winter designs starting with these guys (linked to their Etsy spots):

So what do you with this type of bead? I usually start with earrings. Since these are pretty small, they make great, lightweight earrings. I use a few little accent findings and tiny stone or glass beads on the headpin with them and voila, fun little earrings.
