Then, on the one hand, add a couple of beads:
Now we can form the first “petal”. For this we need to pass one of the ends of the working “thread” into the bugle and tighten the loop:
Further, without changing the scheme of actions, we will have to weave the basis for a future snowflake consisting of 7 “petals”:
Having finished the beadwork, we will have to twist and hide one of the tips of the wire:
Now our master class will tell you how to make “rays”. For their creation, we need about 70 cm of wire. One of the ends of which we tie to the tip of the working “thread” sticking out of the base, and the other – we draw through the bead:
Then we string the beads, as shown in the photo and conduct a working “thread” through the first bead. Adding the missing beads, we will stretch the wire through the bead on the basis of:
