I've learned how to make beaded snowflake just yesterday and couldn't wait to share the tutorial! I've tried to simplify the steps as much as possible. I hope you enjoy making some :)

## Step 1: Materials Needed

To make beaded snowflake you'll need:

1) Pearl beads- of at least 2 sizes, one size 2-3 times larger than the other,
2) Crystal beads- making sure the snowflake is sparkly!
4) Scissor.

I used pearl beads of 2 different sizes- and crystal beads to make sure the snowflake doesn't look boring :)

## Step 2: The Base Ring

You can use 4-8 beads or more for making the base ring of the snowflake,
The number of beads you'll use for the base ring would be the number of points of the snowflake.

Thread the remaining 2 inches thread around the beads of the base once and cut off the rest.

## Step 3: Making Loops (Round-1)

Now that the base ring is ready you can make loops around the base.

Remember that we've cut off one side of the thread so there's only one end of the plastic thread remaining,
Now pass the thread through the large bead and the small bead next to it (clock-wise), -see second picture of this step.

Similarly, pass the thread through the large bead and the small bead next to it (clock-wise) and pull it to form the second loop, - see third picture of this step.

Keep repeating these steps till you reach the strand for creating the 6th loop,

Pull and tighten the thread to create the 6th loop.

There, first round of making loops is done :)

## Step 4: Linking the Loops (Round-2)

In this step we're going to link the loops,

Thread 1 crystal bead and pass the thread (marked with red line and arrows) through the 2 beads (marked with yellow circles) as shown in the 2nd picture of this step,

Again, thread another crystal bead and pass the thread through the beads (marked with yellow circles) as shown in the third picture of this step,

Do the same till you link all the loops.

## Step 5: Final Step

Now randomly pass the remaining thread into 5-6 beads to make sure the beading is secure and it doesn't come off.

Cut off the rest of the thread and enjoy the beaded snowflake!

Attach a jump ring to use it as a pendant, or a earring hook to wear it as a earring or use it as a decor.

Enjoy!
