On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me.......

A beautiful Beaded Bauble tutorial designed by the very talented Marta Draganek. 

Each year before Christmas, a set of Christmas baubles is made in my house. They are all made using one technique (a different one each year), in a similar white and purple colour scheme. One bauble is left as a souvenir and on Christmas Eve it will be hung on a Christmas tree, together with decorations from previous years; I give the rest as gifts to my family and friends. Christmas will soon be here, so if you're planning handmade decorations, it's worth getting started now.

In today's DIY tutorial, Marta will teach you how to make a snowflake pendant. Cat's eye beads, sparkling crystals and frosted Toho beads are the perfect materials to create sparkling winter jewellery. Marta will teach you how to easily conjure a snowflake pendant from small beads!

The pendant will be used to make effective earrings and charms bracelets, but snowflakes can be used not only as an element of jewellery. They will look fantastic as decorations, sewn onto a wool hat or a scarf, attached to a key ring. You can also use them as a phone charm.
