Snowflake/Star of David Ornament Ball Beaded Version


(version 1)

(version 2)

String beads onto thread (following directions below for desired version) and put all beads onto the S2 side and then wind approximately 3 yards size 20 thread wound onto each of 2 shuttles, CTM.

Version 1 (red beads and green tatting on white ornament)

Note: You may prefer to needle tat this one, due to the beading necessary. However, it can be done with 2 shuttles, as I did.

String the beads as follows: 15 seed beads, drop bead, 5 more seed beads. Then take the thread back through the first 15 seed beads. Leaving a space of about 8 inches between beading groups, repeat the above 17 more times.

Ring A: 4 - 3 --- 3 - 4
chain a: 5 - 5
Ring B: 4 + (A3 or B3) 3 + (A2) 3 - 4
Repeat chain a and Ring B 3 times.
Repeat chain a once.
Ring C: 4 + (B3) 3 + (A2) 3 + (A1) 4
split chain b: 5 / 5
Split Ring D: 7 / 7

Move next group of beading into place, being careful not to get the tension too tight.

Split Ring E: 7 / 7

Move next group of beading into position in the thread wrapped around your hand for the next S2 Ring.

(S2) Ring F: 7 (move beads into position, being careful not to make the tension too tight) 7
Split Ring G: 7 / 7
Split Ring H: 7 + (next a1) / 7
Split Ring J: + (same a1) 7 / 7
Repeat Rings E through J, 5 times
Repeat Rings E through G once
Ring K: 7 + (b/D) 7

Cut, tie, hide ends. Attach Snowflake to bangle, or to ball with pins, as pictured.

Version 2 (White beads and white tatting on purple ornament)

String the beads as follows: 20 seed beads, drop bead, 20 more seed beads. Leaving a space of about 8 inches between beading groups, repeat the above 11 more times.

Ring A: 4 - 3 --- 3 - 4
chain a: 5 - 5
Ring B: 4 + (A3 or B3) 3 + (A2) 3 - 4
Repeat chain a and Ring B 3 times.
Repeat chain a once.
Ring C: 4 + (B3) 3 + (A2) 3 + (A1) 4
split chain b: 5 / 5

Here is the only difference from the original pattern, other than the beads. You need to make Ring K as an (S2) Ring of 7=7.

Move the next group of beads (20 seed, drop, 20 seed) into position, being careful not to get the tension too tight.


Split Ring D: 7 / 7
Split Ring E: 7 / 7

Move next group of bead (20 seed, drop, 20 seed) into position in the thread wrapped around your hand for the next S2 Ring.

(S2) Ring F: 7 (move beads into position, being careful not to make the tension too tight) 7.
Split Ring G: 7 / 7
Split Ring H: 7 + (next a1) / 7

Move the next group of beads (20, drop, 20) into position, being careful not to get the tension too tight.

Split Ring J: + (same a1) 7 / 7
Repeat Rings E through J, 5 times.
Repeat Rings E through G once, making the last Ring G as a true ring of 7 + (K1) 7.

Cut, tie, hide ends. Attach Snowflake to bangle, or to ball with pins, as pictured.
