This sand dollar ornament is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.

In 1846, a sketch of Queen Victoria's Christmas tree was published by the Illustrated London News. As a result, the popularity of Christmas trees and ornaments boomed in both England and in America. A variety of commercially produced ornaments appeared in the late 1800's, but by the 1920's trees that were decorated floor to ceiling were in vogue.
