I love making Christmas ornaments with art beads! I thought I’d show you some that I have made, and maybe give you some ideas! I have a habit of hoarding art beads I can’t part with, so this is a good way to hold onto them forever!
These owls were made with polymer owls I made from a tutorial by Heather Powers. I used the handmade felted beads for an interesting effect!
These were made with my own lampwork baroque beads and chandellier crystals. You can do these with the clear ones too – they are awesome for ornaments!
These ones were made with ceramic beads from AJE’s own Jenny Davies-Reazor and Karen Totten. I used my own lampwork beads again, to provide some accents.
The fox and deer ornaments I made for my boyfriend, with AJE’s Kristen Stevens’ black beaded ring; I made my own beaded ring for the deer ornament. The polymer fox is by Summer Wind Jewelry on etsy and the deer pendant is my Blu Mudd.
Another polymer pendant made into an ormanent by Summer Wind – I used a snowball bead I made, and my favoriate color czech faceted rondelles!
