Other Wreaths….

It has been a banner year for my vintage ornament wreaths, but I do make several other styles. This is some of a group that was made for a stunning NYC home store, NEST INTERIORS LTD., located in Chelsea at 21st and 9th Ave. The store features modern design, vintage furnishings, original art, etc. with a very carefully controlled color palette. It is a perfect backdrop for these driftwood-like vine wreaths embellished with antique faded “ghost ornaments”, ┬ácirca 1900 bisque doll heads, old composition toys, vintage tinsel and lots of sparkling mica. They are a combination of holiday-sparkly and eerie-elegance. The wreaths are very reminiscent of some of my bell jars which have also been sold on consignment in the store.
