    There’s something special I need to share about this ornament that’s never happened before…. In some instinctive way that I can’t explain, I felt I was making this for a specific person who needs this ornament at this time in his or her life. It started when my heart was drawn to these two little kittens in a little boat, surrounded by roses and forget-me-nots.  “From a friend” really spoke to me how cherished friendship is, especially with someone special that we’ve known a long time. It went from there… next came a flower/heart die-cut that I pulled from an old Valentine’s Day card. Then came the addition of a little clock, as time is precious.  Then I finally settled for a yellow-gold glass ornament, which I chose to decorate with a tone-on-tone approach by using gorgeous gold Dresden paper trims so the whole thing stayed gold, like the kitties’ little boat. Yet, my heart said something was missing that was tying the clock to “from a friend”.  All my “remember me” mottos were too big. After literally hours of searching through my small mottos, just when I was ready to give up suddenly there I found a tiny “forget-me-not” framed in forget-me-not flowers… only about 1/2” tall.  So there it was! I made my own tiny circular frame from a strip of bumpy embossed paper, and found a tiny gold bow tied in a knot… couldn’t be more perfect. Be sure to see how beautiful the backside is also!

    Our Signature Style - To Make an Ornament for You that Lasts for Generations! You will know you have a ultra-custom Dresden Star Work of Art because we sign and date each and every ornament, as well as add our gold hang tag with your specific ornament’s unique one-of-a-kind inventory number on it. You will receive your ornament gently packed between layers of tissue paper in a beautiful embossed gold box with care and handling instructions. With over 15 years of experience, we are expert at wire-wrapping each ornament to help protect it against accidental breakage (just like those smart Victorians). We take extra time and pains to meticulously back every scrap to cardstock and old-stock papers to protect these beautiful and fragile illustrations so they will last for generations to come.

    Just Imagine, You are Viewing an Ornament made with Materials 60 to 150 Years Old! Dresden Star Ornaments are almost exclusively made with antique and vintage materials to include: glass ornaments from the 1890s to1950s (most of which were made in Germany); colorful Victorian embossed & die-cut paper “scraps” and chromolithographs from postcards and advertising trade cards (made in Europe between the 1870s and 1910); antique and vintage fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; antique and vintage tinsel from tree garlands and old-stock German-made Lametta tinsel; gold and silver old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, foil, gift wrap, spun-glass, and other embellishments.

    Since many of our creations contain glass ornaments that are as much as 120 years old, the condition and patina will vary, which this is part of their vintage one-of-a-kind charm and character. Items described as “antique” are dated between the 1870s and 1920. Items described as “vintage” are dated between the 1920s and the 1950s (mid-century). We also use newer Dresden trims (on occasion) and crinkle wire (to wire-wrap ornaments for durability) made more recently in Germany using techniques and equipment that have not changed over the past 150 years.
