Waltz of snowflakes

Waltz of snowflakes

Set of snow white accessories made from PRECIOSA beads

Snowflakes are beautiful, but fleeting. Make your own snowflakes using beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand which are not cold and never melt.

We will probably never cease to wonder at the beauty of snowflakes. They have inspired artists and scientists who have called them tiny wonders of infinite beauty, icy flowers or letters from heaven. You can use this tutorial to create your own snowflakes which will never melt and will adorn you like a winter landscape. Create earrings, a bracelet and a pendant which you can hang on a chain or key chain. You can choose the color scheme for the icy beauty from the wide color range of beads and seed beads available from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.

 

We wish you many ideas and much enjoyment when working with the beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.
