Snowflake Ornament #185 is the 1st of this year's series.
This year, 2023, my series of snowflakes theme is "Shapes into Snowflakes".
By using peyote shapes I am creating new and exciting snowflake ornaments. In this series the snowflake ornaments are also designed by using one continuous working thread. You only need to change the thread when you run out. I try to use this method that I created as much as I can. I sure don't like having to weave a bunch of threads when I am done with my beadwork.
Knowledge of peyote stitch is required for completing this pattern. The pattern is intermediate skill level if you already know how to work peyote beading.
