Bride's Tree Ornaments

My dear friend got married this year, and for Christmas, I made her a "Bride's Tree". I believe it is a German tradition that a new bride should have these 12 ornaments on her first Christmas tree.

So -as a former potter- I picked up some white Sculpey clay and began quite a tiresome clay-making escapade. I am really happy with the ornaments and almost don't want to give them away. :)

After the ornaments were baked, I painted them with watercolors and sealed them with clear nail polish. I won't post all of the ornaments at once, but I will be posting them this week -and no worries, she does not know I have a blog ;)
