Sparkly Snowflake Jewelry to Wear on Bleak Winter Days

The holidays are over, and most of us are finished with our handmade gifts. (I might still be working on one. Shhhh!) So, naturally, we’re all thinking about what we want to make in the new year.

Winter usually means creating jewelry in darker colors that matches our winter clothes — and our moods! It’s dreary out there, sure, but that shouldn’t stop you from creating something bright and sparkly. When the dreary weather kicks in, I turn to snowflake jewelry!

Don’t let those bleak winter days get you down. Bring on the sparkle with some of Bluprint’s prettiest beaded snowflake jewelry patterns.

Ornament, suncatcher, pendant — this snowflake pattern can be anything you’d like! If you’re a fan of big, bold earrings, you could even attach earring wires to this. Designer StaceyLee notes that the design is stiff and holds its shape without any flopping around, opening the design up to practically any type of jewelry.

Beading Pattern Crystal Snowflake

I admit that I’m a sucker for the traditional blue-gray-white snowflake color combo, but this bronze one caught my eye, too. It’s designed as a pendant, but like the other snowflake patterns it can be made into practically any type of jewelry you’d like.

Here’s another idea for a color you can easily incorporate into your snowflake design. These sparkly pink beads make this frosty snowflake stand out even more. Be sure to brush up on tying a square knot before you start. You’ll need it to secure the beadwork.

Talk about a unique snowflake design! A simple twist of a wire creates this snowflake pendant. Don’t worry about all the wires being symmetrical; that’s the beauty of the piece!
