2nd, thread the wire through the first transparent glass bead, add a blue glass drop bead on the wire;
3rd, thread the wire through the single yellow pearl bead on the next petal pattern as pictured;
4th, repeat above procedures to finish the whole snowflake pattern.
Step 3: Add adornments on the snowflake pattern
1st, slide 2 yellow pearl beads to each wire respectively, then cross both wires through another yellow pearl bead;
2nd, separate the wires by threading one wire through a yellow pearl and a transparent glass bead in front of it, while the other wire through a yellow pearl and a transparent glass bead as well;
3rd, leave one wire alone, and thread the other wire through 6 purple glass seed beads and the yellow pearl bead in the center of the flower pattern as shown;
4th, slide another 6 purple seed beads onto the wire, then thread the wire through the yellow pearl bead in front of it;
5th, thread the wire through 3 yellow pearl beads and a 4mm blue glass bead, then thread through the transparent glass bead in front of it;
6th, thread the wire through a 4mm blue glass bead, 2 yellow pearl beads, then through the yellow pearl bead as shown;
