Art Bead Scene Ornament Sneak Peek!
Over at Art Bead Scene there's an ornament blog hop happening December 4th! Here's a sneak peek at what I'll be showing you! And here's what I made!
There's an ornament blog hop going on with Art Bead Scene! This is the ornament I gave you a sneak peek at on Saturday! I made the green baroque bead and the hanger was made from brass wire - simple and easy to make. The chandelier part has a funny story. I purchased these on eBay having been given the impression they were vintage crystal. They are neither vintage nor crystal. I don't quite know what they are - they could be some sort of glass, but they almost feel like plastic to me. You can see mold marks on the sides. When I questioned the description, I was immediately given a refund no questions asked. Hmmmm. AND they said, don't send them back, just keep them. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. So, I had a pile of these things laying around, and decided they would make great tree ornaments or window charms.
Now, go have fun looking at everyone else's ornaments!
