1. Cherry Blossom Ornament by GwydionsGarden
What would you say about a more exotic take on the traditional Christmas ornament? This exquisite matte gold one was hand painted with white cherry blossoms and embellished with matching Swarovski crystals. Finally, the ornament was tied with a green silk ribbon which perfectly captures the spirit of the winter holiday.
The result? A superb take on the poetic blend of seasons: cherry blossoms can now delicately infuse the winter air, bringing along a dose of characteristic magic… Needless to say, this impressive ornament would make a lovely gift for that romantic friend of yours or for a member of your family.

2. Set of Dark Green Holiday Ornaments by workingmanhandmade
If you’re ready to welcome not one, not two, but three brand new and handmade glass Christmas ornaments in your holiday kit, then this set will be just the thing for you.

Made using traditional Italian glass blowing techniques, these ornaments let their standout curves and spirals do all the talking. Their common denominator?

3. Blown Glass Christmas Ornament by ThomasSpakeStudios
A mix of lavender, purple, and green come together to evoke (what else?) the lavender fields of the French countryside in this unique glass ornament. Impressive, right? Not only that, but this innovative color mix and the perfectly finished shape make it capable of transcending the seasons: it is very likely that you’ll keep it around not only during the colder months, but during warmer ones, too. In summer, hang it close to the kitchen window to catch the morning sun. Or, if you have a garden, allow it to swing in the breeze on one of the branches. Endless uses! Aren’t multitasking (Christmas ornaments) just the best?
