On the 12th Day of Christmas: Flaking Out

“Oh the weather outside is frightful
but the fire is so delightful
and since we’ve no place to go
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…”
I have to confess: I was inspired by this post on the Vintaj blog that shows a filigree snowflake necklace created with the six-petaled filigree they offer. I love working with Vintaj products but have a hard time with the filigrees because I always think that I have to wrap them around something. This picture tutorial slideshow will have you exploring the possibilities of filigree in ways that don’t involve wrapping something. Grab a cup of cocoa {with extra marshmallows!} and enjoy!
Filigree – 6 petaled flower
assorted beads, caps, head pins, jump rings, chain, clasps
pliers, heat tool, oil pastels, screw hole punch, Renaissance Wax
{HINT: Maximize the Smilebox to full screen for best viewing. And turn on your speakers!}
