Ruby Jubilee Ornament Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

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.

Step one: On a 1.5-inch antique brass-plated 23 gauge head pin add a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm crystal golden shadow round. Finish with a simple loop. For help making simple loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. 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.

Step two: On a head pin add a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 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.

Step three: Cut a 3-inch piece of 22 gauge bronze wire and make a simple loop on one end. Add a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 12mm ruby round, the pendant, another ruby round and a 4mm crystal golden shadow. Finish with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step four: Cut a 1½-inch piece of wire and make a simple loop. Add a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 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.

Step five: 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.
