silver snowflake set

Bright silver (colored) wire, light blue beads, and misc periwinkle and clear beads. 

The snowflakes were made with a jig (that I made myself from a block of wood, a drill, and nails), and then hammered flat with a ballpeen hammer on the concrete patio in the back yard.  This inspired me to get a proper jeweler's anvil and small ballpeen hammer.  The hammered shapes look super cool, but they're also very delicate.  Hopefully practice and/or using the more delicate tools will make them sturdier :)
