Snowball Dodecahedron - Beaded Christmas Ornament - Tutorial

3.25"(8cm) diameter | Miyuki Delica Beads
This beading pattern provides step by step instructions with very clear colour photographs to create a stunning, sparkling and beautiful dodecahedron ornament with an open lace finish.


The Secret Star was the Christmas ornament for 2017 and I had not intended to create another this year. But I made a beading mistake and one thing led to another, so I thought 'why not'! I have videoed and photographed this beautiful Snowball but I can not seem to capture how amazingly beautiful it is! The lucky few who have viewed it in real life have confirmed this.
Sure to grace any Christmas tree the Snowball will look just as pretty as an everyday ornament on a shelf and would make a gorgeous handcrafted gift for family and friends. If you love Peyote it is relatively easy to do, created in components which are then stitched together. This geometric shell is sturdy and firm and requires no inner support on completion.

The finished Snowball measures approximately 3.25" (8cm) in diameter.

The tutorial is comprehensive and clear - 38 pages with 139 clear colour photographs!

I would advise this is an Advanced beading tutorial. I am confident that an Intermediate beader will also be able to accomplish this tutorial as I have included as many helpful hints and tips as I can. Also, I am here to help for those of you trying to tackle something a little more difficult! You should be comfortable working in component form, peyote, and starting and ending new threads. Please bear in mind that this tutorial is not a 'quick' make - and will require patience and time to complete successfully! As the owner of a completed Dodecahedron Snowball - I can assure you that every bead stitched is VERY worth the outcome! ...
