Yarn and Clay on PCDaily

Snowflakes bring reminders of the awesome geometry of nature. Remember cutting and unfolding paper snowflakes that taught you the secrets of repeating patterns? Some of us still thrill to that lesson in polymer.

San Francisco’s YarnNClay (Lina Bailey and Yana¬†Mostitsky) offer these gracefully shaped drop earrings decorated with a snowflake cane reduced to tiny dimensions. The two artists met on the internet and now mix their media fashionably in an Etsy shop.

Montarsi on PCDaily

This year I vow to make some of Jan Montarsi’s glittery snowflake ornaments. Look closely and you’ll begin to see how he used small cutters, combining them into a geometry of his own for ornaments. His delightful tutorial shares some of the finer points.

Bringing back childhood pleasures is a sure way to stay in touch with the truer meaning of the season.

    Montarsi’s snowflakes are lovely BUT, snowflakes have SIX points. Other things might be pretty: stars, doilies, whatever — but SNOWFLAKES have SIX points!!!! (Yes, I am a purist — and I collect snowflake ornaments. It matters!!) ;^)
