Lampwork Glass Ornaments for the Blog Hop and How to Make Them

how to make an easy ornament from beads and headpinsAh, so, the other day I was inspired to make some glass bird beads. Yes, I've tried this before and not been completely pleased with the results. This time I came up with a couple of different styles that I rather liked. Some were turned into earrings, others into ornaments~ all ready for the ornament blog hop! Click here to see other wonderful artisan made ornaments.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and enjoying making loads of cool things!

Those birds are perfectly quirky! I adore their cuteness, and they're great in the ornaments. But, I had to laugh, I've never heard the phrase "Bob's your uncle". From the context, I assume it means "just like that" or something along those lines. I love fun little cliches like that.
