Beaded Snowflake Form

Step 1

Choose a snowflake form.

Step 2

Choose one of the wires and add your first bead.

Step 3

It is a good idea to start with small beads in the center. The wires are close together here and this will ensure all your beads will fit.

Step 4

Continue adding beads to the wire, leaving at least 1/2 inch of space at the top.

Step 5

Firmly grasp the end of the wire with your round nose pliers so the wire is flush with the tool.

Step 6

Rotate the pliers to form a loop.

Step 7

Rotate the pliers as far as your wrist allows and re-adjust, making sure to stay in the same spot on your pliers.

Step 8

Continue rotating until a complete loop is formed.

Step 9

Repeat the process for the remaining wires on your snowflake.
