I love blown glass Christmas ornaments, and now there are endless possibilities for making your own classic ornaments. The beads are hand blown into molds, a silver coating is applied on the inside of the bead, and then a translucent, colored glaze is used on the outside of the bead. This process creates beautiful beads for making unique heirloom Christmas Ornaments. These instruction will take you through each step of making this beautiful star with color photos and tell you where to find materials. This wonderful star pattern makes a great Christmas gift. You can use your own colors and in many cases different shaped beads for your design. For more information and patterns, go to www.creativityinpieces.com.
