What size beads do you use for this project?  I want to make this with my Girl Scout troop for our Holiday Bazaar!  Thanks for the great idea!

I made a few of these and they do come out really pretty, but I had the hardest time tying five 24g wires together...maybe i'm just weak.

I used 24 gauge wire and was able to use several sizes of beads from seed beads up to 8mm sized crystals.

I had problems with 5 wires as well so I went down to 4.  Its easier and looks just as pretty!  ^_^

Here are a few of my snowflakes!   The small ones are pale pink hues.  One is in crystal and pale purple hues and the other is pale green/pearl/crystal on gold wire.





Sorry for the sucky photos!

Thanks!  I have to make 6 more before Christmas and I'll post pics of those as well.  Sadly, I was hit by the ice storm on Thursday and have been without electricity since.  My bead stuff is too bulky to travel! Shocked

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I tried tying mine together, but hated the way the knot made the snowflake asymmetrical, so I wrapped a tiny piece of wire around the bundle of wires and soldered them together in back.  Still off-center but not so much.

I also tried this with seed beads and 32-gauge wire..  Wow, what a pain in the behind.  What are you supposed to use that size wire for anyway?  Tee-tiny.  The 24-gague was definitely easier for this novice beader.

Thanks so much for the tut!  This was fun and I loved how they turned out!
