These are two-piece, two-dimensional ornaments which I designed. They are made from 1/8” maple hard wood and cut on the scroll saw. Each of the two pieces slot into each other, thus creating the dimensional design. I hung a Swarovski crystal ball (5mm) from the center of each ornament for a little extra sparkle and pizazz. Although they are extremely delicate, they are quite interesting and fun to make. They are great for practicing turns on the scroll saw. There is a tutorial on my site available as a free down-loadable article on my web site which gives detailed instructions and photographs on how to hang the beads. This can be applied to many other aspects of woodworking requiring hanging embellishments. I hope you enjoy them!
