After getting everyone's feedback on the ornament (both here and on Twitter), I was able to step back and really think about my collection and what I wanted to do. I also thought about some of my goals when designing the new collection, including the major goal of developing things I didn't have to make. And yet as much as I love the new collection, I realize that the price point is a little high for many people, especially right now.
So it seems only fitting to develop a line of laser cut ornaments using the patterns in my new collection. They could function as a much more affordable version of my line. (Hopefully - I have sent the designs to my laser cutter for a quote yet.)
These are just the prototypes that I hand pierced to get a feel for the designs. What do you think? I still haven't settled on how to hang them yet.
