The winter I turned 18, I made my first batch of Christmas ornaments. I felt that my friends and I needed to begin collections of our own, now that we were officially adults. Each year I have added a new ornament to the collection, focusing on a technique, material, or theme I used sometime during the year. Ornaments are given to friends and family that I see in person over the holiday season. I offer previous years' left-over ornaments for sale at select vendors in Downtown Greensboro each winter.
