Cold Winter Days

Following in the footsteps of my beading sister (albeit 2 years later), decided the time had come to join Robin Atkins' Bead Journal Project. My goal is to make 12 ornaments.

Originally from the Northeast, it seemed appropriate to use snowflakes for January.

I beaded 19 snowflakes using Delica beads and Swarovski crystals. The ornament is beautiful hanging over my dining room table although it did not photograph well so I spread it out on a black velvet board.
