Handmade Iron & Velvet Christmas Ornament in Wooden Box
These ornaments are the perfect meeting of rustic and luxe, and will make a special addition to your Christmas place settings, or a charming small gift or stocking stuffer.
There are six boxed ornaments in total, sold individually. Being totally handmade, each one is unique, and certainly you won't see anything like these in the shops.
The hand-forged iron ring base is reminiscent of a stylised Christmas pudding, so I've added tin leaves with chippy green paint, little red gem beads (plus some white glass) and copper wire, and finished with beautiful double-sided Swiss velvet ribbon in luscious red, plus a black silk-velvet tie for hanging on the tree.
The back of each ornament is pinned with a excerpt from a traditional Christmas carol, hand-stamped on a slip of silk, and the ornament is presented in a wooden cheese-style box, lined with more silk, finished with a wax seal and baker's twine.
A creative and whimsical gift for a creative and whimsical friend.
Handmade by me (Bianca) here in my studio 'The Beige Larder' in Sydney, Australia.
Please note: none of my Christmas ornaments are suitable for children. There are sharp edges from the metal leaves and copper wire, and the small pieces could easily become loose with play.
