Art Bead Scene Ornament Hop...REVEAL!

Today is the reveal for the Art Bead Scene Ornament Blog hop...I created two really FUN ornaments!

"Oh Christmas Tree"

The first ornament is called "Oh Christmas Tree"...I wrapped black leather cording around a 7.5mm jump ring and ran it through the red beaded bead and ended with an overhand knot.  I strung a green wood bicone bead on a eyepin and attached one end to the jump ring and then added a 5.25mm, and a 7.5mm jump ring.  I took a 10mm jump ring and attached it to Jennifer Jangles Christmas Tree pendant and then finally attached that to the 7.5mm jump ring.


This next one is called "Topper"...I strung 18 gauge brass wire through the green Uganda paper bead and made wrapped loops at both ends.  I attached one 7.5mm jump ring to the top and two of them at the bottom.  I stamped Xmas 2012 on a brass blank, added a 10mm jump ring to it, and then attached it to the 7.5mm jump ring.  And, finally I added suede strips to the top and made an overhand knot...Voila, you have two super trendy ornaments!

I created these next two ornaments for Lorelei's Hoop challenge...they also include Jennifer Jangles snowmen and Karen Totten's ceramic hoops.
