Experience needed = It's very easy to thread the beads; some hand strength and proper round-nose pliers needed to make the little loops.
I was looking for a kit like this. They're a little smaller than the snowflakes I already had on my tree and the beads are not the clearest plastic, they don't shimmer like in the photo. They did turn out pretty, I used some of my own beads instead.
One of the spokes broke off my 2 nd ornament.
Love the way these shimmer in the lights. Easy to make. Loved how the kit came with everything you needed.
Easy to assemble, but the completed snowflake is very detailed. It looks like it took hours to put together, but the directions make it very easy to assemble.
I LOVE the snowflakes. Unfortunately, 2 pearls are cemented together, one silver bead is only half there, and several of the tiniest silver beads don't quite fit onto the wire! Only 1 of the 3 snowflakes was not affected by the bead quality, and I had to be creative to borrow from one of the others to make a second one complete, or I would only have had 1 of 3. This was my first of 4 ornament kits, and I suspect I will run into a similar situation with all of them. I realize it is difficult to weed out every flawed bead in creating the kits, so I will do what I can, then get creative with what is left over. They ARE beautiful, and I am not sorry I got them. I guess I would have been more surprised if every single bead was flawless!
