A cool accessory!
- Time:4 hours
Cut an 81 inch length of monofilament. Thread seven Plain Blue beads to the center of the monofilament. Thread one end of the monofilament through the opposite end bead to create a loop.
2. On the right side, thread the beads in order: 1 Shiny Blue bead, 5 Plain Blue beads and 1 Shiny Blue bead. Take the left piece of monofilament and thread though the last Shiny Blue bead, creating a loop.
Thread the left piece of monofilament through the next Blue bead on the original circle.
On the right piece thread 5 Plain Blue beads followed by 1 Shiny Blue bead. Thread the left piece through the last Shiny Blue bead, creating another loop. Thread the left wire thought the next Plaint Blue bead on the original circle.
Repeat three more times to create a total of five loops.
For the last loop, thread the left wire through 2 Plain Blue beads on the original circle and then through the very first Shiny Blue bead added. Thread 2 Plain Blue beads to one piece of monofilament and 3 Plain Blue beads on the other side. Take the piece of monofilament with 2 and slide the end through the third bead on the other side. Pull both ends to create a loop.
Create the corners of the snowflake. Thread 1 Plain Blue bead on one side and 2 Plain Blue beads on the other. Take the piece with 1 bead and thread it through the first one on the other side. Pull both ends to create a loop. Do this 2 more times.
After the third loop, thread both pieces of monofilament backwards. Thread both ends through the top bead of the second loop and exiting the monofilament through the two sides of the second loop.
On one side thread on 3 Plain Blue beads and thread the end of the monofilament through the second loops side bead, creating a loop. Repeat on the opposite side.
Thread both wires backwards through the top of the first loop, then through the sides of the first loop, and finally exiting back to the center of the larger loop. One piece of monofilament coming from each end. Keep threading the monofilament through the loops of the snow flake until they exit at the center bead in the next bead loop.
Repeat to create five more corners for a total of six corners.
Tie a couple knots and thread the excess through some of the beads and trim.
Repeat this entire process to create two more snowflakes.
Overlap the snowflakes and use monofilament to thread in and out of the beads to keep them attached.
Cut 54 inch of beading wire and fold in half. Twist about 1-1/2 inch of wire from the end and slide the first bead on to 1 of the pieces of wire. Using the round nose pliers turn the 1-1/2 inch twist into a multiple layered loop on top of the bead.
Twist about 5 times after the first bead and then add the second bead on to one piece of wire and twist 5 times. Repeat this using a whole strand of beads. (Tip: do not twist too many times or the wire may break.)
Take the overlapped snowflakes and thread one wire end into one of the end bead and twist. Do this at the half way point and at the end of the overlapped snowflakes. (Tip: add more places to adhere the snowflakes if necessary for a better hold.)
After threading the wire through the last snowflake twist five times and add a bead. Repeat with as many beads necessary to make the right fit.
On the last bead twist 1-1/2 inch and using the round nose pliers turn the 1-1/2 inch twist into a multiple layered loop on top of the bead.
Take a head pin, put it through the first bead and the multiple layered loops and create a loop. Do this to the last bead as well.
Attach a jump ring to each loop and a large spring ring to one end and the tab to the other.
