New Aluminum Celtic-y Ornaments

A while ago a customer asked me if I could make some of my designs into ornaments. It was a great idea that I had kind of done before but not very well. So I worked on some new designs and reworked older designs and came up with a bunch of new ornaments just in time for the holidays. (How clever of me-eh?) They are made out of aluminum and the hook is made from stainless steel wire.
We then had a few days of perfectly overcast,cloudy days and some slower sales so I had the time to take photos outside on our weathered deck and lawnchairs. I like the rustic and grey look they got.

They all cost $10 plus shipping and come in a nice kraft natural colored gift box wrapped in tissue paper and tied with yarn.

Celtic Knot Infinite Swirl Cross Ornament
This is one of the most complex celtic knot type designs I've come up with. At first I wasn't sure what to do with it. It kind of works as a hair pin too but then I had the "A-Ha" moment and it dawned on me that this would be the perfect ornament design.

Dancing Swirls Aluminum Ornament- This is an enlargement of an earring design. I love the whimsical happy feel to it.
I wanted to do an ornament that used my celtic loopy cross design that has been selling really well. This design takes that idea a little further and works well. I sold my first one a few days ago!
This is a reinterpretation of my Celtic Heart and Swirls design.
This is another reinterpretation of a design that sells well. I made the spiral a little more spiral-y to create a more substantial piece.

Celtic Angel Swirls Aluminum Ornament
This is a design I've been trying to rework for a long time now.The two side swirls remind me of angel wings, hence the name.
These last 3 are ornaments I've had in the shop already but just simplified or scaled down so that they can fit nicely in the gift boxes that we use.
