Art Bead Scene Annual Ornament Blog Hop

Today I am part of another Blog Hop - I can feel myself getting addicted to these challenges!  The theme for this hop is The Silly Season - that can be Christmas ,Hanukkah , Kwanzaa or Winter Solstice themed ornaments.  

We do not really celebrate Christmas here at home but we do enjoy being with friends and family and being in the Christmas spirit.  But let's get to my ornament . . . 

I found the most beautiful blue beads that is part of the string on this ornament - my photography skills does not do it justice.  I am in love with them - not one is the same.

And here is a close-up of the actual focal at the bottom.

  1. A creative solution to the ornament challenge. I like that you used a clasp - you could add this to a coat or a purse zipper.

  2. I love your blue beads and that you used a clasp. That makes this ornament so versatile! :)

  3. I would love to make something like this... I would definitely display this year-round. Beautiful and meaningful!

  4. An ornament that reminds us of the true reason for the season. Very nicely done!

  5. This would make a great package decoration as well. Something that could be used in various ways, as an ornament or a zipper pull. And this is one that I would certainly leave out all year long. Thank you for joining in this fun holiday hop! Enjoy the day. Erin

  6. I like that your ornament is so versatile and those beads are really lovely

  7. What a lovely idea. I recently came across my grandfather's baby cross. You've inspired me to do something with it.

  8. Very beautiful! I love that you used a lobster clasp so this can be used in many ways.

  9. Yes, it's great, using the clasp is a great idea, you can use it many places! Very cute!

  10. Very pretty. Love the colors. ...Im in the hop but not added on the list yet. Please stop by and comment. Happy Holidays and Hopping, Kim at http://kimisjewelryandgifts.blogspot.com/2012/12/abs-ornament-blog-hop.html#comment-form
