In answer to requests, I have listed 2 patterns in my RecklessBeading Etsy shop that will make quick and fun holiday presents.  First is the tutorial for the Mini Wreath earrings/pendants using the Russian spiral stich.
Mini Wreath tutorial

 This tutorial will first show you how to make a beadwork tube of bugle beads and seed beads using the Russian spiral stitch. The tutorial will then show you how to turn the tube into a circle, add a bow of seed beads and crystals, and finish the wreath with ear wires or a ribbon to make quick, festive earrings or pendants.

The second is the tutorial for the Bloomin' Wire crochet flower.

The tutorial for these charming 2.5 inch (7 centimeter) flowers crocheted of craft wire, long Magatama beads, and seed beads is just the ticket. The flowers need only basic knowledge of crochet, making them perfect for beginners to advanced crocheters. A Swarovski pearl and a few basic wire working techniques complete the flower. Instructions are given for making a flower pendant but the flowers could also be attached to hair clips, hung as ornaments, or used to decorate packages.
