March 2006 Beaded Snow Flake Pendant

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project.  This month, I would like to feature the instruction on a beaded Snow Flake Pendant made using seed beads and clear Crystals that can be turned into pendant or charm.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Step 1: Cut a piece of thread around a meter long.
String on 6 4mm crystals. Cross both ends of the thread at the last added crystal as shown.
Remember to balance out both end of the threads - both end of the thread should be the same length and your beaded ring should be at the middle of the thread.
Step 2: On the right (black) string, add on one seed bead, a 3mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal. Cross the string through the second seed bead added (where you see the two black lines cross) and continue to add one 3mm crystal and one last seed bead.
Cross this same thread through the 4mm crystal from the first crystal circle you formed on step 1 (where the black line shows coming out of).
On the left (red) string, cross this string though the last seed bead added.
Step 3: This step is almost the same as step 2 but just to repeat it one more time.
On the Right (Red) string, add on one 3mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal. Cross the string through the first seed bead added (where you see the two red lines cross) and continue to add one 3mm crystal and one last seed bead.
Cross this same thread through the 4mm crystal from the first crystal circle you formed on step 1 (where the red line shows coming out of).
On the left (red) string, cross this string though the last seed bead added.
Step 4: Now we'll go a bit faster.

On the right (black) string, add on one 3mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal, a seed bead, a 4mm crystal. Cross the string through the second seed bead added (where you see the two black lines cross) and continue to add one 3mm crystal and one last seed bead.
Cross this same thread through the 4mm crystal from the first crystal circle you formed on step 1 (where the black line shows coming out of).
On the left (red) string, cross this string though the last seed bead added.

You will be repeating step 3 next. (this should be easy even just looking at the illustration)

Next repeat the above instruction in this step one more time until you reached the joining part (remember not to add the very last seed bead that you are suppose to add when repeating the step 3) as you will be crisscrossing both string through the very first seed bead added on step 2 (where you see the two colored line arrow crisscross).

Note: if you want to add a hook to wear as a pendant, replace the second last 4mm crystal that you were suppose to add with the pendant hook. 

Now you can tie off and you have your beaded crystal snowflake pendant!
