New snowflake for the Christmas tree

2013-snowflake

Every year, I add a snowflake to the Christmas tree. Since I started beading, most of these have been beaded snowflakes. Here’s this year’s addition! Twisted bugles, a few Swarovski, and a few size 11 beads. It needed more thread passes, but I was running out of time (11:45 p.m. Christmas Eve). It’s a little soft, which is why I made the hanging loop from tip-to-tip rather than just one tip. When I tried that, the whole thing sagged a bit like it was melting.
