About the Author
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Sandra went to school for dress design and later attended art classes at collage and the Chicago Art Institute. She has done many different kinds of arts and crafts over the years, but following her move to Canada 20 years ago, she discovered bead weaving art and has devoted herself to designing bead weaving patterns that are easy for anyone to do. In addition to designing, she teaches classes at local bead stores and is a member of her local bead society. Her focus is in designing, then writing patterns with step-by-step instructions for others to make. She has had her designs published in Bead & Button magazine, Bead Patterns magazine, and produced 3 CD's of necklace patterns in 2003 and 2004. Sandra D. Halpenny is the author of several popular books and eBooks on contemporary beadwork: Christmas Time Pattern Collection, Wedding Lace Necklace Collection, Snowflake Ornament Collection 2006 and Snowflake Ornament Collection 2007. She continues to sell over 200 bead weaving patterns on her web site.

only a handful of colors used, so you don't have a large outlay on beads unless you chose colors. If you want to move away from white and sparkling crystal clear beads, there are colored variations shown for each snowflake to encourage beaders to create their own color combinations.
If you enjoy these snowflakes and how Sandra Halpenny lays out her instructions, I encourage you to seek out her other books for necklaces and bracelets. I realize I may sound like an ad writer, but I am just a beader that found her designs and appreciates the effort she puts into making her designs achivable by an elderly, not so sharp sighted any longer, average beader.
This doesn't prevent you from following any of the instructions or anything, but it is very noticeable, and a bit disappointing. However, I still recommend the book, the contents are great :)
EDIT July 2013: The book has been reprinted in a better quality since I bought it, and the author very kindly offered me a replacement free of charge. I have amended my score to 5 stars, since the poor print quality was the only reason I did not give 5 stars in the first place.
This book is a great treasure!
