I love doing the ornament swap that Sally Russick hosts and was lucky to be paired with Linda Landig this year. I love the ornament Linda sent. Linda made the stone snowflake and topped it with a beautiful lamp work bead.
For Linda's ornament I wanted to make a stained glass type star.
When that was not working I reached for this molten star made by Sharon Palac and left over from my bead soup.
I love the way Sharon added the bit of glitter.
The lamp work I got thru a Bead Fest swap and I am not sure who made it, although I think it is Jan from Molten Mayhem.
I started pairing art beads and decided the blue lamp work reminded me of a beautiful winter night sky and I added sari silk to finish it.
To you and yours I hope you have a wonderful Holiday spending time with family and friends.
A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Take a look at the other beautiful ornaments. Thank you Sally and Linda, the perfect challenge for the end of the year.
