Each year I try to make a special ornament for our tree. Joe’s mother had given us a yarn ball which was hand spun by his grandmother Sophie who we lost this year.

After rolling the yarn ball in glitter I soldered a charm with pictures from Joe’s childhood encased in beveled glass I had mirrored and antiqued.

adding a crystal charm and a sentiment on a recycled tag.

My wish is that it will be treasured and enjoyed by future generations in a more peaceful world. Happy holidays xoxo
