I made these earlier this month.  I got a Cuttlebug for my birthday earlier this year and was experimenting with different dies and materials and cut out these snowflakes on shrink plastic.  I was going to make a necklace, but then had the idea of making bookmarks with them instead and giving them away in some Christmas packages I was sending out.

The bookmarks are hand forged 16 gauge wire, and I added firepolished crystal dangles to give a bit of icy sparkle.





I kept getting glare off the crystals and metal - so sorry for the crappy pics.

Thank you - I love snowflakes and am thinking of making more of these as just dangles for ornaments at some point.
