I like the simple Y style of pendant bail I used for this button pendant project, but there are dozens of types and sizes to choose from.

I love turning a button, cabochon, bead, or charm into a pendant, and using a bail to convert your trinket makes the process so easy. If you're looking for just the right bail to use with a flat-backed piece, donut style bead, or just about anything else, I highly recommend this guide to pendant bails in the Fire Mountain Gems EncycloBEADia. Whether your piece is drilled front to back, vertically, or what have you, they have lots of recommendations for you to choose from.

I personally like a simple "Y" shape like the one I used in the One-Inch Button Pendant project but now I'm eyeing a bunch of others, too!
