I started this design with the intent of making flowers and then I thought "a few tweaks and these would be snowflakes!"

I made two pairs. For the second, I used blue where the white SuperDuos were and vice-versa.

There are endless possibilities for color combinations with this easy and fun design!

In the step-by-step instructions the two colors of SuperDuos used are referred to as "SuperDuo 1" and "SuperDuo 2."

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 3 yards of Wildfire 0.006" thread
  • 24 SuperDuo color 1 beads
  • 24 SuperDuo color 2 beads
  • 20 size 11/0 seed beads
  • 14 size 8/0 seed beads
  • 2 Jumprings
  • 2 Earwires

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Cut about 3 yards of thread. String onto your thread an 11/0, SuperDuo 1, 11/0, SuperDuo 1, 11/0, SuperDuo 1, 11/0, SuperDuo 1, 11/0, SuperDuo, 11/0, SuperDuo 1

Leave a 3" tail

Step

Step 2

Pass your needle through the first 11/0 added in Step 1. Then pass through all the beads added in Step 1 to from a circle. Pass through the circle a second time to secure.

Step

Step 3

Exit your needle through the bottom hole of a SuperDuo 1.

Step

Step 4

Reverse the flow of your stitch by entering through the top hole of the SuperDuo 1 you exited.

Step

Step 5

Pick up two SuperDuo 2's and string through the top hole of the next SuperDuo 1. Repeat until you are all the way around the design. Follow the same path again with just thread to secure this row of newly added beads. Exit through the bottom hole of a SuperDuo 2.

Step

Step 6

Reverse the flow of your stitch by entering through the top hole of the SuperDuo 2 you exited.

Step

Step 7

Pick up one 8/0 and pass through the top hole of the next SuperDuo 2.

Step

Step 8

Pick up one SuperDuo 1 and pass through the top hole of the next SuperDuo 2.

Repeat steps 7 & 8 until you are all the way around your design.

Step

Step 9

Exit through the last 8/0 added.

Step

Step 10

Pick up two 11/0's an 8/0 and another two 11/0's. Go through the opposite side of the 8/0 you exited to create a loop. Pass through this loop a second time to secure. Pass through the entire outside row of the design to secure your design and hide your working thread.

Step 11

Clip your thread tails and attach to the earwire of your choice using a jumpring.

Step 12

Repeat steps 1-11 to create a matching pair.
