Crystal Snowflakes

Congratulations to Bead Junction! Traffic is flowing again on Roncesvalles, in both directions!!

If you missed Maria Rypan's class at beadFX, you can take it this Saturday, December 11 at Bead Junction.

Choose new Silver Shade or Classic Crystal Pearl. The sparkle comes from the 6mm Swarovski Elements bicone tips. Learn the secret for extraordinary 3-D snowflakes and tricks to firmly place the bugle ‘V’s around a circle of beads. Great idea for decor and memorable gifts.

I have taken this class and it's GREAT!!! Maria is a very patient and knowledgable instructor. I completed one snowflake in class and got started on a second. And just for good measure, I bought another set of components to make a third. Making these twinkly snowflakes is so addictive!! They come in three sizes so you can make ornaments, pendants and brooches out of them. They make great hostess gifts too!!

Here's my first one!! Doesn't it look awesome? I encourage you all to take this class with Marvelous Maria. If you can't make it, you can purchase the kits through her website:
