I am so excited to share the work of another talented artist with you!  I discovered Forever Filigree on Etsy and I was both amazed and intrigued by her designs!  Shannon uses a technique called quilling, which is the art of taking 1/8” strips of paper and rolling them around the end of a pin or quilling tool to form filigree inspired shapes. She then arranges and glues these shapes together to form unique, one-of-a-kind snowflakes. As she has an eye for detail and perfection, each snowflake can take 2-3 hours for her to complete. It is finished off with an attached hanger and silver thread positioned just right so the snowflake always hangs perfectly.

Take a look at some of her beautiful designs:

Aren't they amazing?  As with real snowflakes, each one is unique and no two are exactly alike!

Shannon has graciously provided me with a snowflake to give away, and it is perfect for Christmas in July!  Here are the details:

Ocean’s Majesty Sand Dollar Ornament
A 5” elegant, white quilled snowflake ornament with an authentic Maine sand dollar in the middle for decorating your beach cottage, beach-themed home, or giving to any ocean lover....have a wonderful Beach Christmas. My sand dollars were found by me on the beaches of Maine (Popham Beach and Old Orchard Beach). This snowflake comes beautifully gift packaged in a two-piece metal tin lined with cardstock and finished off with a matching gift label on the lid of the tin. The tin is perfect for protecting and storing the snowflake for many years of enjoyment.
