I am starting work on all of my holiday projects. These are some beaded snowflakes I've made, using swarovski crystals. Each one is in the favorite color of the person I am giving it to, tell me what you think Kiss

would you make those like you would make normal beaded flower chains or beaded stars?  If so I have an instructional book and I could post instructions from there.  ::shrug::

I meant on crack....see? I can't even type that! ok...so here goes.

start out with 18" of 24 gauge jewelry wire. String 6 6mm bicone beads and tie a knot to form a circle. with the long end of your wire thread one bicone right to left, so that the wire peeks through the left side of the bead. string three seed beads, one bicone, and three more seed beads. thread the wire again, from right to left. Your wire should be on the left side, forming a circle on top of your first bicone. repeat the process on all 6 bicones. When you have all six bicones beaded thread your wire through.......ahhh forget it....let me draw the instructions and scan them in, I am confusing myself!

Those are so pretty and elegant, and I can't wait to see a tutorial.  I made clunkier beaded snowflakes last year, and I can't wait to give these a try.  Must stop at the bead shop on my way home.  Thanks for posting!

I know it's a busy time of year, and I don't wanna nag, but I wonder if you were able to put together instructions?  I'd still love to give this a try and if I wing it I'll just wind up with a sparkly blob  Roll Eyes.  Thanks!

ok, try these instructions and see if they make sense


2. Cut 16 inches of beading wire. For the snowflake center, thread six bicone beads to the center of the wire. Form the beads into a circle, threading one wire end back through the first bead. Pull both wire ends taut, twist the ends and cut one tail off.

3. On the remaining wire end, thread  (3 seed) bead, one bicone, (3 seed) bead. Thread the wire through the next bead in the center round. Repeat to make a total of six loops.

4. On the wire end,  insert this wire through the 4-millimeter clear (4-millimeter white) bead in the next loop of the second round.

5. These beads fill the gap between the loops. Make another circle on the second loop. Continue working this way until you've completed a circle on top of the sixth loop. Thread the wire into the base of the sixth circle. Wrap the wire tail around the base circle wire several times and trim the excess. Twist the wire ends together. Trim the excess wire.

6. For a hanging loop, thread a 4-inch length of ribbon through one of the beaded loops and knot the ends.
