|Snowflakes in Silver|
It's a blizzard around here as I'm back to the snowflakes - and this time they are silver. Trying to get back into the production groove I've worked up all of my lovely large silver grey pearls. I've actually used 4 sizes of silver grey pearls for a graduated effect and the all-important sparkly rondelle also in a silver grey colour. I thought they looked dramatic and elegant on the shiny black paper.

I started making these snowflake ornaments last year, but I've made a few modifications recently. Two main differences - the snowflakes now feature a sparkly gem or pearl embellishment, and the beaded hangers are now done on wire, instead of stretchy beaded cord.

I just love the beaded hangers version using wire - it allows you to position the ornament exactly how you want it - without swivel. Less stringing of the teeeny tiny beads on stretchy wire doesn't hurt either from a production point of view, and the result is sturdier.

I have a lot more gem/pearl variations to work up, as I have prepared this part in advance. Still to come are gems in teal, blue, green, lilac, gold and light pink and pearls in pink, teal and red. Six down.
