It is snowing hard here and I seem to have been focused on snowflakes all weekend.It started off last Thursday when the excitement of the first snowfall made me hunt out the beaded snowflake samples I made last year with my children and ended up with me making kits for the school fair which luckily still went ahead.It is so disappointing for everyone when these things are cancelled after so much hard work and excitement.
The snowflakes are made with a very fine beading wire and some 6/0 miyuki beads .The final design is approx 4cm across.However once you have the pattern and general idea,you can substitute with larger beads or bugles and then the possibilities are endless...!

If you want to have a go click on this link :- The kit makes approx 8 - 9 snowflakes but there is enough beading wire to make loads more- so if you need more miyuki beads go to :-
