Twinkle Stars

It's still hot and dry here on the High Plains of Texas. I'm trying to stay cool by thinking about Winter and the holidays to come. I've finished this six pointed star pattern. It's my first ornament of the year. It measures 1 inch by 1 inch.  I think it would make a beautiful decoration for tree, wreath, packages and more.  Or you could make two for earrings.

I've made it in several different colors of size 11 seed beads, but have used 3mm rainbow clear bugle beads in all of them. The bugle beads reflect the color of the beads around them, giving a little extra sparkle.

The pattern is available at BeadPatternsBoutique and The Bead Coop.

I have a snowflake pattern in the works.  I don't know if I'll get to the free form brick stitch "toys" decorations this year or not.  Right now I have no ideas floating on the surface of my creativity.  We'll see how that progresses as the weather cools.

Happy Beading!
