    What a pair of earrings these would make. Copper, perhaps, with a turquoise bead on top.

    • That would require some skill to craft the intracacy. Turquoise is one of Mary Beth’s favorite gems. We had a local jeweler make her wedding ring of gold with a simple strip inlay of turquoise. Lucky me…no diamonds required. 🙂

    They reminded me of the feathered feet you sometimes see on fancy types of chickens.

    I agree with Linda about the earrings. We rarely see hoar frost in these parts so it’s very exciting to see it in your neck of the woods!

    • We have both hoar and rime frosts often once it really gets cold. It has to be at least in the teens for hoar and we need a fog to freeze for rime. We haven’t had many cold days so far, until the last couple, and when we did it warmed up and melted the crystals. I saw them as dancers but earrings might dance on the ears of an active wearer. 🙂

    Wow, it’s fascinating how these things form. Such amazingly intricate little patterns. I can see how folks see so many different things in them, prints, feathers, ear rings, etc. They all work.

    • They are amazing. I am sure the variety comes from whatever the mechanism is that causes every snowflake to be different. These are different although have a similar appearance. Little variations.

    These were the kind of crystals I looked for last weekend and didn’t find. Excellent image.
