Celebrate Babys First Christmas with a unique personalized silver Christmas ornament that is a portrait of your family! This babys first Christmas ornament includes baby and the parents.
This babys first personalized family silver Christmas ornament is made of cold cast aluminum , bronze or copper with a metallic finish that is antiqued with black acrylic paint. It is 5 1/2" long and is ready to be hung on your tree! Because each personalized Christmas ornament is handmade, there may be slight variations compared to the one photographed. Personalize this Christmas ornament by adding an engraved ribbon with the year, baby's name or the family name. Include any personalizing details in the "Note to ElizabethBonura" section when you make your purchase.
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 bronze, aluminum or copper and finished it with a metal coating. The ornament is cold-cast bronze, copper or aluminum depending on the finish you choose. I use real bronze, copper or aluminum metal powder mixed with resin to create the ornament casting. I finish the ornament with a bronze, copper or aluminum metal coating that also has ground bronze, copper or aluminum metal suspended in an acrylic binder. The ornament most definitely has real bronze, copper or aluminum in it. Because it is cold-casted, the ornament is lighter than a solid metal piece which makes it ideal for hanging on a tree.
If you would like to add some personalized texted to be added on the ornament, please note it may extend the processing time I need to create your ornament because I custom make each stamped by hand using a photo polymer process.
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.
