Snowflake Part 1
This snowflake can be made in 15/0's for tiny snowflakes for embellishments or even earrings.
11/0's will make it slightly larger. Here I have made it in 8/0's and it is 1 inch. In the tutorial, I am using 6/0's. You could also make it up in crystals but I would use a light weight wire to give
it more support.
I've numbered the steps on the photos also in case blogspot gets them out of order.
Step 1 - pick of 4 beads and tie in a ring, pass needle back through the first bead.
Step 2 - pick up 1 bead, pass through the next, pick up 1 bead pass through the next,
pick up 1 bead, pass through the next. When you pick up the 4th bead, pass through
the next 2 beads.
Step 3 - Pick up 3 beads and pass up and over the same bead so the needle goes through
the same bead you are coming out of again.
