Snowflake Jewelry

Well, I seem to be a little obsessed this
season with Wilson Bentley (1865-1931)
the American farmer and snow crystal photomicrographer.
I did a post on him earlier this month and showcased
several of his beautiful photographs. You can also
see some on my sidebar. Gladys happened
to comment on that post that Harry Winston had
created some jewelry inspired by snowflakes. So,
I had to check them out! Here's one of my favorites!
Although not as expensive or fancy, I do have
two tiny snowflake pins of my own! They are
quite old, but still fun to wear on my sweater!
We've had our first two snowfalls so far this
season! Maybe we'll have a white Christmas!


  1. very nice...guarantee a white christmas here...we got around 18 inches...we built snow forts, had snow ball fights, shoveled...now i need to hibernate...

  2. Betsy,
    Grandma Hanna would have loved these. She enjoyed wearing jewelry as these. Thanks for the birthday wishes...I'm getting ready to eat pizza.

  3. The snowflake jewelry is beautiful, Betsy!! Any time of year!

    Happy holidays! :-)


  4. Bach ~ I have a little heart-shaped rhinestone pin that was a gift to Grandma from me way back when. When she died, I guess everyone looked for it to pin on her dress she was to be buried in, but couldn't find it anywhere. When her closet was cleaned out, it was found on a dress and given to me. Yes, she would have loved these snowflakes, too! Bittersweet memories! Sigh.

  5. Brian ~ 18 inches! I bet your boys are just about going crazy! How fun...take pictures!

  6. That snowflake actually shines in the picture it is almost like an optical illusion. The picture of you on the sidebar is a really good picture!

  7. Why, thanks, Otin! :)

    Are you snowed in?

  8. Hi! Betsy,
    Nice photographs of snowflake jewelry.
    Thanks, for sharing!
    DeeDee ;-D

  9. Oops! I forgot that the TT members, don't meet next week...
    Therefore, Happy Holidays!...To you and your five men and Nugget too!
    DeeDee ;-D

  10. Your pins are pretty, Betsy...very sparkly! I used to have a snowflake pendant. Have a great week : )

  11. Those are so pretty. I love snowflakes too. I'll bet that Harry Winston is a fortune!

  12. We don't get much snow at all, but I'd gladly take some Harry Winston snow! I love your two little pins; I have some similar earrings that I love wearing this time of year.

  13. I like those pins. We hardly ever get snow. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I always enjoy reading about your family. We recently tried spaghetti squash and loved it.

  14. Beautiful jewelery.;) So fragile and so delicate.
    I am keeping my fingers crossed for the snow to last, enjoy it.;)

  15. I lurve these pieces of ice too! I have a snowflake necklace I got from the Cookie Lee jewelry line and it was VERY affordable.

  16. That is a classic example of why I think Nature does a superior job in decorating and/or designing.

    I mean, think about a square snowflake and tell me the one on your lawn would look good in square. LOL

    We seem to have a kind of itch to change the pine tree into a carnival of lights and gaudy sculpture. I never have understood the fascination of "decoration" when it comes to disguising Nature's creations.

    We got trees all over the place and none look alike. LOL

  17. Niiiiice! I fancy that blue-hued one. And glad to see ya got some of the white stuff!! Snowball fight anyone?

  18. Subby ~ you're on...let me get my mittens! ;)

  19. I like all of them...and snowflakes are so beautiful.

    I love the snow on the ground. I hope we get more so we can have a truly WHITE Christmas.

  20. Betsy,
    Thanks for chatting last night and for sharing your life and creativity through this blog!
