Art Bead Scene Holiday Ornament Blog Hop—Reveal!

If you’ve come to look at my post for the 3rd Annual Challenge of Color, click here!


It’s time to see what ornament I came up with for the Art Bead Scene Holiday Ornament Blog Hop using the beads I found up at the Bead Expo a few weeks ago from local lampwork artist Marianne Bradman. When I saw them in a bowl of orphan beads, I knew they’d be perfect for a Christmas ornament or three.


In the end, time won out and I made one ornament using just one of the beads.  I used memory wire and Czech glass beads to make 2 nested rings with silver-coloured craft wire messy-wrapped over the loops joining the two ends of each ring. I wired the two loops together and dangled a silver-coloured snowflake charm in the centre, and hung the whole thing off the art bead. A length of red and white bakers twine for hanging completed the ornament. The loops and the snowflake move freely


If I can get some more of the Czech glass beads in the right colours, I will probably make it a trio of ornaments.
