How to Make a Snowflake Ornament
Silver and Drusy Snowflake Ornament
By Darlene Anderson
If you want to get out your torch, Darlene Armstrong will guide you through a different process for an altogether different, glistening snowflake. Sparkling silver drusy stones resemble snow, frost, and ice so much, they seem to be made for winter. In this project, you’ll master torch control with multiple solder joins in close proximity, as well as bezel-making and stone-setting the center drusy stone.
