Limited Edition Artisan Holiday

November has arrived! This means Thanksgiving, colder weather for some of us, football, and one month closer to the holidays. Yep. You heard right we are that much closer to the holiday season.

I have been inspired by this upcoming time of year and created a few Limited Edition items. These are items that will only be seen for a few months then will no longer be available even to custom orders.

The first of this year's series of ornaments...

A shabby chic copper photo ornament. Each ring in this ornament has been handformed from scratch. The bezel is also created from copper, and everything has been give a light patina. Can you tell I'm in a patina phase? Each year you can change the photo to show the growth of your child or grandchild or even your pet. It would also be lovely to commemorate a loved one. I had a fabulous idea that it would be lovely to hang on the tree with a white ribbon, but I couldn't find one to show you.

A favorite of mine....

The sad snowman pin. A solid sterling silver pin/brooch fashioned into a snowman with sterling silver twig arms. He is anxiously awaiting his new home. Secretly he hopes it is someplace warm but won't mind the cold as long as he's loved. This snowman will only be available this year. Next year there will be an entirely different themed snowman because I love snowmen. Won't you please take him home and make him a happy snowman?

Remember these items are limited editon, and the designs won't be seen after this year. You can buy them in my shop.

Let me know what you think of these designs. You know I love your feedback and ideas. Plus, I have more limited editions planned and will be able to incorporate the feedback.

That ornament is gorgeous. How do you get that patina??? You probably shouldn't share stuff like that, huh? Like trade secrets.

I'm a patina freak and love it :)

I'm hoping some houses close before the holidays for us so I get some spending $ for the holidays.
