Again this year Sally Russick hosted a Holiday Ornament Exchange. Each person was paired with another and made an ornament and "exchanged" them.
This year Sally was my partner. So since she is one of the people I follow for seed beading I wanted to jump...or step out of the box...so I downloaded a pattern off the web from ThreadABead on Etsy.
This is what I made Sally.
My art beads that you can see through the "window" in the top piece I purchased from Sandra Walton Art. On the bottom I hung a charm saying 2014 that I purchased from Overstock Findings.
Here is the stunning seed bead star Sally sent me. The pictures don't do it justice. It has an ethereal look to it hanging in front of the lights. She has two super cute red balls with silver mirror looking dots strung to the top of the star with gold ribbon to hang the ornament from the tree with. I love it and it looks super on my tree.
Thanks again to Sally for hosting this event. I can't wait to see what everyone else has done. Below is a list of the participants.
Merry Christmas to everyone, and may you have a wonderful and safe New Year!
