Ode to Snowflakes


Snowflakes are a phenomenon that amazes us all.
Simply put, snowflakes are nature’s art. The complex,
beautiful, symmetrical structure of a snow crystal quite
literally arises out of thin air as it tumbles through the
clouds. Real snow crystals are hexagons with a six-faceted
symmetry. However, for the ease of designing and stitching,
these beautiful snowflakes are eight-sided. They include
pale metallic braid for shimmer and pastel crystal beads to
add a touch of dimension and iridescence.

Rounding out the design is a very short verse about the awe and wonder of snowflakes. 


Old man winter upon us blows,

Casting chills and driven snows.

But in place of the warmth he takes,

Is the awe and wonder of snowflakes.
