As you can see I love red. This is made with Swarovski Crystal hearts, bicones and seed beads. Unfortunately I'm crap at taking photos so you really can't see it like I do.

For ages and ages I've wanted this pattern kit, here http://www.beadinfinitum.com/Kits/index.html#Telstar. You have to scroll down and see the one that say's Telstar but I can't do on-line shopping.

Any how's I've finally worked it out for my self and wrote my own instructions down, well typed. I don't know if I'm making them way they do. What do you think? Baring in mind I don't know what size seed and bugle beads they used or what size the round crystal bead inside it.

Here's my version.

I would just like to mention also those boxes the items are on are all made from my gift cards that I was given in the past, using a video I found on you-tube on how to make your own gift boxes. Recently I brought some really nice Xmas cards and with some templates my brother-in-law kindly made for me, I made little gift boxes out of them and then just to be cool I wrote the same matching cards out to go with the boxes. When I get around to photographing those I'll post them.

You can recycle any gift cards, or even use old calenders, magazines, thick gift wrap, anything.  All depends on what effect you want.  It really saves my pennies on buying shop brought ones and sometimes I can't always get the ones I need.

I have the video down loaded to my hard drive now.  There are so many wonderful jewelery and craft tutorials on you-tube.  I have loads of books but I just can't follow the instructions, even the ones with pictures in them.

Those are so darling, DFG. I wish I was that talented. I don't have a crafty bone in my body.

I really like those.Oh yes and it's my own idea, design.  Remember that woman who wanted me to do a write up about my self for her website and she wanted that photo, so put that it was her pattern so I had to email her and tell her it was not, because her pattern was too complicated, so I just made two beaded balls together.  They are easy to do, specially when you have a free animated video of it to follow.

I did wonder whether the eyes were too big but I think it makes the snowman look cute.  Putting his scarf on was right fiddly, in fact I gave up the first time, but I came back another day and finished it.  I had to make my self do that too.
  You should of heard the cursing that was going on, lol.
