Update to Michelle's Snowflake Challenge
I just wanted to say, as beaders, we sometimes want to go over the top with our design and our creativity. I, however, learned a lovely lesson during the Snowflake Challenge. One of my pieces was a very simple ID badge holder that was made with many of the glass beads in the kit and I added a toggle closure. This has become my most favorite piece of jewelry. The colors that were in the kit just seem to blend in with almost anything that I wear. I put the toggle in the back for easy take off and put on and I use this holder every day I used colored Softflex nylon coated wire for stringing and it gives my holder the flexibility to not be brittle. I have to say, of all the jewelry I have created, this simple little badgeholder has become my most treasured piece. Maybe we need to think about that the next time we get ready to design that "masterpiece".
