Step 3: First arm of snowflake

On the right hand end of the wire (end B), thread
  • medium (6mm) bead
  • small (4mm) bead
  • medium bead
  • *small bead*
  • small bead
  • large bead
  • small bead
  • large bead
  • small bead
  • large bead
  • small bead
Make a loop by threading the wire back through the small bead marked with asterisks (of the two small beads together it is the one closest to the snowflake centre). I find making the loop easier if you bend the wire and get the beads where you want them to be before threading the wire back through 4mm bead.

These are beautiful!
I love the beads you used for this. I have a hand-strung design that looks a bit similar. Nice!
Very pretty and effective. If you use wire with a silver color, instead of the brass or copper, you'll get a more frosty/icy look.
I don't have any silver wire, but my sister has ordered some for me, so I'm looking forward to trying this.
good golly miss molly!!! I'm going to do this!! That is the cutest daggone thing!!
Amazing decoration for the Christmas tree. Simple and affordable. And people are quite manage to make it with their own hands to the New Year!

Thank you for doing the tutorial. You should post it to Pinterest.
I don't see a picture of the entire finished snowflake. Could you post a picture the finished product long shot?
I had a picture of the finished snowflake for the last step for a big finish, but I've added a couple of pictures to the first step which will hopefully give you a good look at it without having to do a lot of scrolling!
Beautiful work. And thanks for the extra picture.
Oh you have such patience! This is really nice, wish my fingers would work with small objects.
Well done looks great!
