Art Bead Scene Ornament Blog Hop

 Art Bead Scene is a jewelry website that features handmade jewelry and beads.  This blog hop features handmade ornaments and ornaments that use art beads.  You can find the post here.  

I made two ornaments that I'll share.  The first was actually a gift for my sister.  We celebrate both the Winter Solstice and Christmas in our house.  The ornaments reflect the former as we have no 'paganesque' ornaments on the tree.  

I made this besom (broom) out of a peacock feather, some artistic wire, and some ribbon.  My second ornament was made from aluminum sheet metal and some alcohol ink.  I cut it into the alchemic symbol for earth, the element that winter embodies.  

The besom is on the tree and the earth symbol will be up shortly.  I look forward to seeing the rest of your ornaments.
