These earrings/pendant were creates while designing my Pretty Picot Poinsettia Snowflake. I thought the center of the snowflake made an adorable small snowflake all on its own and thought that it would make an adorable jewelery set.

coolhockeymom at Crochetville had a wonderful idea for these snowflakes, make festive stitch markers out of them! use either the kidney earwires or the large lobsterclaw clasps attached to the jumpring to put on your crochet stitches!!!
