“Bronze Ornament with Blue Gem” -- March 2, 2009

I stitched the “Bronze Ornament with Blue Gem” in the early to mid 1990’s.

On the right side of the ornament is a half moon which is blowing wisps of gold through the rest of the ornament until they reach the star. The blue gem was placed in the center of the star.

The entire ornament was stitched in Continental and Basketweave using Kreinik metallic threads. The blue gem was already attached and I just had to stitch around the gem.

It’s been finished as an ornament with gold cording around the ornament and for the hanger. A gold wire ribbon bow was added at the top of the ornament. The back of the ornament was finished using tan velvet.

I probably picked this design as it’s a cute, quick project.

I don’t have any records as to the designer. If you know, please let me know.

Hope you enjoyed my “Bronze Ornament with Blue Gem”!

That is absolutely adorable. You know the feeling you get when you see something and "this is it" and you just love it at first sight.

Love how it is finished too.

That is a winner in my book :-)
