Love, love, love this Victorian ornament! We put up our tree early, and it was the first ornament to be placed on the tree! I am enjoying the traditional Christmas colors of red, white, and green. Your exquisite placement of the red Swarovski crystals to represent berries and the two-tone green gold crystals are delightful! Use of the white lace resembling snowflakes is extraordinary! The flowers and ribbons add that crowning touch to the creation! Thank you Barb for your hard work making this ornament so special! The shipping was fast and the communication made this an A+ experience!
This ornament is the epitome of traditional Christmas in red, green and white featuring a red cardinal on a frosted white ornament with green glittered holly leaves, red glittered poinsettias, white snowy branches just dripping in Victorian charm with double layer of beaded fringe, beaded applique with pearl teardrop accent and red satin roses and approximately 75 Swarovski crystal rhinestones.
The ornament begins with a 2.5 inch round blown glass ornament that has been predecorated with the a brushed frosted white painted finish and the cardinal on a berry branch. I have added lots of red Swarovski crystals as berries as well as two-tone green gold Swarovski crystals, and some rare Crystal Moonlight Swarovski rhinestones representing snowflakes throughout the ornament. The back is decorated with an elaborate beaded and sequined applique that has had additional Swarovski rhinestones added to it as well as two dark red rolled satin roses with a white pearl 2-piece beaded teardrop.
The long 6 inch fringes include an all glass white seed bead fringe with clear 1.25" glass bugle beads, and a traditional red, green and white pearl very high end graduated fringe with gold glass bugle beads. The fringes are topped with a red and gold zigzag fancy gimp trim and delicate white venise lace that resembles snowflakes. Additional fringes and trim decorate the ornament cap as well.
