Homemade Christmas Ornaments
Some of the ornaments I have made as Christmas presents for friends as well as for purchase. I have been making ornaments since 1976. Have created ornaments using wood, plastic canvas, cross-stitch, jewelry techniques, quilting, stained glass, acrylic, upholstery, paper, glass, plastic, gemstones and metal.
Found a gross of miniature ornaments which I bought several years ago. Two dozen of six different colors: red, green, chalk, light gold, gold and bronze.
2014 - wanted to carry the swag motif depicted on the miniature ornament to the larger by using swags of chain.
Ornament for a friend's birthday. He loves the black/pearl/gold color combination.
Ornament for a friend's wedding present. He is very proud of his Irish heritage. His wife received the large globe of variegated blue, pearls and blown glass Mogen David as a Christmas present last year. Have designed the ornament for the first born due later this year.
