This very first month I have chosen Winter/snow as the theme. Here we are, in January, and we have barely had a single snowflake all of this season. So I thought we could make some snow beads instead, and here are the ones I have made so far.
|Snowflake beads for january|
|Snowflake bead on lavender silk ribbon|
The big one is 26x20mm and the little one fell on the tiled floor and chipped so I'll have to toss it :/
I was thinking of coring the big one, and I made it on a 5mm mandrel because of that. But now I think I will ream the hole properly instead and make it transparent, to let the colour of the ribbon show through the bead. .
I hope I find time to make more Winter/Snow beads, but until then - it seems the temperature is dropping. We may get snow after all :)
