I began by tatting a new Snowflake pattern with a pale blue cordonnet I had just received. I wanted to deck it out with lots of beads and sell it on Etsy as a new snowflake. However, the beads made the flakes so heavy…I went a little nuts with the glass…that I decided to turn it into a keepsake instead. I tacked the flake to white damask Aida cloth and added a large crystal to the center. This 3 x 3 metal box is fully lined with white felt and the lid is surrounded with matching handmade cable. The seed beads and fringe beads are all clear with AB (Aurora Borealis) coating.
