Just finished beading and drawing the tutorial for a Beaded Christmas ornament in the shape of a Snowflake star, I used seed beads, silver beads and pearls. The finished piece in the picture is around 2 inches tall but you can always differ the size of the finished Snowflake Star by changing the bead size, use bigger beads for bigger beaded ornament, I intend to use even smaller size to make a pair of earrings.
