2011

The superstition of hoping for wishes to be granted when seeing the first star of the night date back to the ancient world. It is this belief that you can wish upon a star that has brought about the fantasy alluded to by this 19th century American poem. The words of this "Star Light Star Bright" poem has also no doubt been used on many occasions to quieten a child ready for bedtime as they look out of the window waiting to see "Star Light Star Bright" - the very first starlight!
This too, is the theme for this year’s Christmas ornament.

I wished for a star that I could incorporate my love of crystals, especially those set in the chaton montee style. I wished for a star that would show off my favourite 24K gold plated size 15 seed beads. I wished for a star that would twinkle with star light when its on the Christmas tree. I wished for a star that embodies the romance and belief of this simple nursery rhyme. I want to smile every time I see the star and believe that my wish will be granted.

Star Light, Star Bright uses a structured peyote woven base that is then embellished with glimmering chaton montees at the spokes. This style of setting crystals allows every facet of the beautiful Swarovski xilion chaton stone to be seen in all its glory without obstruction or hindrance. Nestled at the centre of the star, is a snowflake embracing another xilion chaton. The result is a star that answers my wishes – a glimmering, glittering ornament that would look exquisite on any tree.

Give the gift of a wish this Christmas season. Star Light Star Bright makes a beautiful gift for a loved one or a friend. Make them for your own Christmas tree and invite your friends and family to make a wish for peace, happiness and love this festive season.
