11. Complete the Sixth Figure Eight
Pass through the first of the 8/0 beads that you strung in Step 10, and pull the thread taut.
String a 4mm bead.
Pass down through the second 8/0 that you picked up in the fifth figure eight, and down through the 4mm bead in that loop, and back into the center ring.
12. Position the Thread for the Top Loop
Sew through the snowflake and bring the thread out of a center 8/0 bead in one of the outer loops.
13. Make the Top Loop for Hanging
String six 11/0 beads, and then pass back through the bead that your thread exits, going in the opposite direction.
14. Weave-In and End the Thread
Sew through a few beads in the snowflake, following the path of existing thread. Pull the thread taut, and then tie a half-hitch knot over the thread running between two beads. Pass the needle through the next bead, and tug the knot inside of that bead to hide it. Repeat this process a couple more times, and then trim off the thread close to the beadwork.
Thread the needle onto the tail of thread that remains from when you started the snowflake, and use the same technique to weave-in and end that thread.
15. Attach the Snowflake to an Ear Wire
Use the tips of chain nose pliers to gently bend the ring on the ear wire to one side. Slide the top loop on the snowflake into the open ring. Use the pliers to gently close the ring again.
