Beaded Snowflakes

Yesterday, in between cleaning up my dusty home before a friend came over for drinks and busily making cards so that I could post them out in time for Christmas, I took a little break and beaded some snowflakes:



I was only going to make one, seeing as I had so much else to do, but they were so much fun, and so quick, to assemble I ended up making three:


... and I'm going to make some more today so that I can give them away as little gifts.

There is an excellent tutorial for constructing these over at Beading Daily. (These snowflakes would be great to make with children too.)

GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS!
I love your snowflakes and other beading!
Your Mum's drawings are good too!
And of course the beautiful photos of flowers give me lots of pleasure!
Keep doing it!

oh those are so pretty, I am glad I didn't see these before Christmas, otherwise I'd have added them to my almost endless list!Most definitely one to remember for next year though.

Thankyou riggwelter!
These little snowflakes were popular with their recipients.

I've been thinking that I might get together with my sisters, my mother, and my niece and nephew (the crafty ones in the family) to make more of these for next Christmas.
