This year, celebrate your anniversary or engagement with a contemporary designed Christmas ornament! These ornaments make great gifts for your husband, wife, friend or even your parents. Traditional materials given for 7th anniversary is copper, 8th is bronze, 10th is aluminum, 14th is ivory, 25th is silver and 50th is gold. I have all of these options available in this ornament style! These ornaments are about 5" long and come ready to hang on your tree. Each anniversary ornament is handmade so there will be slight variations compared to the one photographed.
HOW I MADE IT: I sculpted the original design out of clay. Then I made a mold of the original sculptured ornament. Finally, I cold cast the metals or mica powders and finished it by antiquing with wax. I use real metal powder (for the bronze, copper & aluminum ornaments) bonded with resin to create the ornament casting. I finish the ornament by polishing and waxing it. Because it is cold-cast, the ornament is lighter than a solid metal piece which makes it ideal for hanging on a tree.
ABOUT MY DESIGNS: I create Family Christmas Ornaments, Anniversary Plaques and Sculptures all inspired by life, love, and mostly family! One key feature of my family designs is all the figures are connected and become one. I was greatly inspired by the idea of when a couple gets married, two become one. When I began to add children to my designs I continued the theme of connectedness by creating the children around the parents all emerging together.
