Every snowflake is unique

When I sit down at my craft table, I push myself to try something totally new. I had this snowflake bead leftover after making my mom some Christmas earrings. Often I stick with a simple design for pendants, but this time I got out my wire jig to make the flourish for the bottom. Then I added a wee crystal in the opening. My mom decided to put it on ribbon and fibre cord, which I think looks quite nice. I fixed it up, though, so it has a clasp instead of having to tie it everytime. I left bits of ribbon at the ends to cover up the clasp to preserve the charming improvised look.
