Wear the magic of winter on a chain. Snowflakes, fall gently to the ground, making the world a magical place. This simple Koch Snowflake will remind you of fun times in the winter, and look great, even in summer!

A Koch Snowflake starts out simple and gets gorgeously complex quite quickly. You start with a triangle, then in the middle of each side, you add another triangle. Then add a smaller triangle in the middle of each smaller line. Repeat this as much as you like, and follow the outside line. Voila!

Now, the Koch snowflake is a fractal, so it has the property of being "self-similar." So, if you look at one of the 6 "arms" of the snowflake, you can see that the arm pretty much looks the same as the larger snowflake. In fact, if you took 6 Koch Snowflakes, and arranged them around, the outline around them all would still be a Koch Snowflake, and there would be inner details too. A Snowflake made of Snowflakes!


Technical Details:
There are 6 2nd iteration Koch Snowflake Curves, with internal detail (of the 1st iteration), each made from one continuous length of 20 gauge orchid copper wire or 20 gauge fuchsia copper wire and is 6cm (2 1/4") wide. The Koch Snowflakes are held together with peacock blue jump rings, and create a 3rd iteration Koch Snowflake Curve. It hangs on a 38cm (15") hematite craft chain.
