crystal tree ornaments
 Christmas Ornaments are sentimental to my family. I can point out the ones given to me by students over the years. We have one to commemorate every trip we’ve taken since my husband and I were married. There are those which dear friends have made or bought for us. And I’ve made my share of them as well.
     When I started M’Lady Creations, I thought it’d be a cool venture to make a limited number each year from high quality 'top shelf' crystals and crystal pearls. It’s fun to come up with a slightly different design and color scheme for each. These are designed by me and completely hand produced. The backs of the bows have a dot of glue to help keep the bow tied and the ribbon ends are coated with a liquid called Fray Check which does exactly that: keep them from raveling. For several years my mother was my production assistant and we would spend the Thanksgiving holiday working on them. But after I started the website, I needed to have them finished before Turkey Day, so I had to fly solo since Mother only came that week. I manage to let her know every year when I’m working on them, and she feigns sadness that she’s not here to help. (Yeah, I somehow question the sincerity of the expressed sentiment.)
     So now let’s talk about this very, very, different year. I had carpal tunnel release surgery at the beginning of November. A valiant effort to get the ornaments finished prior to the surgery, unfortunately, fell just a bit short. As with many shipments from overseas (the crystals I use come from Europe), my components were late getting here in spite of the order being placed quite early. I only had the ribbon to go on about 2/3 of them, but tying bows requires two working hands and I only had one for almost three weeks. Plus, the surgery was on my left wrist and I’m left-handed. I’m very happy to report that my left hand no longer goes numb on me. And I’ve even played my flute the last several days. So I’m a happy camper!
     Back to ornaments. This year’s are emerald and light gold. I’m very please with the presentation. I hope you are as well. As you can see below, I have a few wreaths from 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 available as well as the new 2020 ones. I’ve also priced collections at a discount. Click the photos below for descriptions. I hope you will want to add a special crystal ornament memory to your tree this year!
