I created this detailed ornament by stacking to beautiful pendants together.
Antique brass filigree and Austrian crystals combine to create a Victorian feel in this delicate Christmas ornament. From the ornate details of the filigree pendant to the classic beauty of the silk ribbon, the elements of this ornament work together to create a timeless work of art. It is sure to become a family heirloom.
On a 1.5-inch antique brass-plated 23 gauge head pin add a Swarovski 4mm crystal golden shadow round. Finish with a simple loop. Repeat four times. Attach these in the crevasse of the petals on one of the antique brass small beautiful pendants. To connect the two pendants together, place a tiny dab of E6000 to the tips of the petals and press together. Allow to dry.
On a head pin add a Swarovski 6mm crystal golden shadow round. Finish with a simple loop. Repeat four times. Attach these dangles to the tips of the petals where the two pendants come together.
Cut a 3-inch piece of 22 gauge bronze wire and make a simple loop on one end. Add a Swarovski 12mm ruby round, the pendant, another ruby round and a 4mm crystal golden shadow. Finish with a wrapped loop.
Cut a 1 1/2-inch piece of wire and make a simple loop. Add a Swarovski 8mm crystal golden shadow round and finish with a simple loop. Attach this to the loop below the ruby round. On a head pin add a 4mm crystal golden shadow. Finish with a simple loop. Connect this to the loop on the 8mm crystal.
Cut a piece of 3/8-inch cream organza ribbon. Thread it through the top loop on the ornament. Tie a knot in the ribbon and trim the ends.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
