Forest Frost

Green and Pink Winter Snowflake Medallion Necklace
designed byCynthia Kimura
Skill LevelAdvanced (or at least patient)
TechniqueBead Embroidery
Time4-6 hours
Approximate Size24 Inches

When designing jewelry, don't feel like you must stick to one technique. Here I used elements of bead embroidery and seed beading, but finished with a simple chain.

The bead embroidered focal of this necklace tells the story of a winter wonderland. CzechMates Triangle Beads and Swarovski Lochrose crystal sequins create a forested look around an edelweiss flatback, which looks like an icy pond. Wintery green and cranberry red seed beads from an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend create the perfect color palette for this frosty display. Learn how to make this necklace and add Forest Frost to your style.
