Buried in Beads!

I had a lot of fun making beaded snowflakes as little Christmas (and a couple of birthday) gifts for friends and family.  Instead of plain white and clear, I decided to go with the recipients favorite colors.  I spend too much time looking at real snow this time of year anyway!

The first picture is of the whole group.  Here are some more detailed shots:


Those are the smaller snowflakes.


There are the big ones!


They were really fun to make, and a quick project.  I was impressed, since I had never really gotten into bead netting.  Smiley  They were a big hit!

Very pretty, I'd love to have some of these for my Xmas tree, and they would also look great in a window with the light shining on them.
