Sally Russick’s Annual Ornament Swap/Blog Hop!

I have been participating in Sally Russick’s Ornament Swap/Blog Hop for years, and it’s so much fun every year!  Sally partners us with someone and we make a holiday ornament for them!  Today is the reveal!

My partner was Alicia Marinache from Canada! She makes awesome jewelry which you can find here in her ArtFire store!

This is what Alicia made me:

Isn’t it wonderful?  Her wirework on this piece is really awesome!  It can be worn as a pendant OR used as an ornament!  I’m thrilled with it!  Thank you so much Alicia!

And here’s what I sent Alicia!  I always stress over what I’m going to make, and it takes me a little bit of time, but I’m really happy with what I came up with this year!

This year I made a red lentil shaped bead (it’s large, 1 1/4 inches) and wrapped it in pure 22k gold leaf with a swirl imprint.  I strung it on beading wire with rhinestones, gold saucer beads and a swirl star charm!

Please visit everyone else to see what they made and received!  And THANK YOU to Sally for hosting the ornament swap again this year!  I always look forward to it!
