Silent Night

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

Looking for a Christmas ornament to blind the neighbours? This variation on the snowflake form would make even Clark Griswold proud! With 109 (yes, 109!) 6mm Swarovski bicones strung and twisted onto a 4.5" snowflake armature, this ornament could be used as a tree topper.

Begin by stringing eight bicones on each of the snowflake's arms. Finish each arm by creating a small loop with the memory wire. If you are having trouble bending the wire, try using a heavier pair of pliers or heating the wire with a candle. If you still can't get the wire to bend, try glueing on memory wire ends with E6000. Next begin stringing bicones on 24 gauge wire, wrapping between the snowflakes arms. Finish by wrapping one bicone over the centre of the snowflake form.
