I'm still enamored with the new twin/super duo beads. Every year I make one snowflake Christmas ornament and one star Christmas ornament pattern. This year I set out to make a snowflake pattern with super duo beads. When I was finished I realized there was a star in the center of the snowflake, so I call it a starflake.
This ornament measures 1.75 inches. It makes a wonderful Christmas tree ornament, package decoration or even a pendant for your favorite chain. It works up quickly so you can bead a whole snow flurry in no time at all.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:

Step by step illustrated instructions accompanied by text
List of supplies
Approximate Finished size:
Twin or super duo beads (super duos recommended) and size 11 seed beads

I've been designing beaded jewelry for about 8 years. My initial attempts at designing were to make beautiful jewelry with semi-precious (healing) stones. The beads kind of took over my life and I'm not particular what I use to design with as long as it is a high quality bead.
I can't say I have a favorite stitch or type of bead, but lately I've been experimenting with the new Twin beads and Super Duos.
Next on my to-do list is design some items with Cubic Right Angle Weave with the Twins. It works in my head, now to put thread and beads to it.
