I did not start creating jewelry in the beginning. I started working with beads because I wanted to bead a pair of shoes in the style of the Peranakan (Malay and Chinese mix heritage) women who live in the South East Asian region. They have the most beautiful colors and designs and I wanted a pair of my own. Once I made the first pair, then a second, then a third. Then I discovered other kinds of beads and other methods of putting the beads together. You can say from then on there was no stopping me.View all patterns by designer (73) »
But what is a snow flake? Simply it's a single frozen crystal of ice. Always six sided in structure, no two snowflake are alike.
Snowflakes conjure up images of white Christmases and many legends have been passed on from generation to generation about the humble but beautiful snowflake. One of the most popular is that long ago, a shining star led the way to a child born in a manger. Snowflakes are believed to be pieces of that gleaming star that will guide us through our lifes.
My humble snowflake embodies all the beauty and tradition of this beautiful creation of Nature. Six crystal encrusted spokes radiate from a central crystal. Each spoke is embellished with sparkling Swarovski crystal montees reflecting light just like a real snowflake. At the end of each spoke, is a beautiful glass point with an Aurora Borealis surface diffusing light into a glorious rainbow. Between each spoke, a spidery web of beads and crystals further evoke the filigree beauty and grace of the snowflake.
Snowflake - a beautiful ornament for your Christmas tree this Yuletide.
Whether its for your own tree or for a friend or loved one, Snowflake will be a very personal and cherished ornament for many years to come.
