Noatalgic Ornament Kit

I loved working with this kit. The only problem I had was with trying to make the circle to complete, I felt the wire made it difficult.

Snowflakes

The blue snowflakes are a big hit at my craft show. One lady bought 26 to have a full tree of blue snowflakes.

Very pretty but hard to twist wire

We are experienced beaders but we had a lot of difficulty forming loops at the end of each arm of the star. Hence there were spaces between the tips and center of the snowflakes. Glueing the last bead helped but made a mess.

Beautiful

These were lovely but I do wish the wire wasn't so hard to make into a spiral shape at the end it was a real battle but love the decorations made at the end.

Stunning!

Totally gorgeous! So easy to do. However, if an elderly person or a child was making them, they would need assistance in turning the wire at the end of the spoke, as it is very strong wire. They turn out to be beautiful ornaments on the tree, and a lovely "thinking of you" Christmas gift.

Stunning!

I just love these beaded snowflakes! The beasts are lovely, the colors well coordinated, and the varied designs give distinctly different effects. I tend towards clear and lighter colors while my daughter prefers the bolder designs. All are lovely and elegant.

The forms take some hand strength and practice in forming the final loop. Invest in Memory Wire cutters and Memory Wire round-nosed pliers. While the directions were well-written with easy to follow illustrations, watch some videos on working with Memory Wire if you are new to this as I am.

Heed the advice in the directions about forming the loops facing the center and check twice that your loops are facing the same directions. It’s nearly impossible to fix if loop in the wrong direction, although I managed it twice with considerable effort.

Several of the form spokes broke from the effort to form the loop which I attribute to both my inexperience and attempts to tweak the loop. I purchased addition forms on Amazon at a good price so all was not lost.

Overall, lovely, well-designed kits (I purchased 4) and I would buy again.
