Handcrafted Ornaments

 

Each year we have a company-wide secret Santa – the catch is that you have to make the gift. We have so many creative people in our office, it’s so fun to see what everyone creates. This year our jewelers also each made Todd an ornament. The idea came from Crista who was making ornaments as gifts for her own family and thought it would be fun to make one for Todd, but also thought her fellow jewelers would want to join in as well. Below are photos of each of their designs.

Hand-beaded by Crista.
