This listing is for a one-of-a-kind folded ribbon pine cone decoration. The ornament features a natural linen ribbon with metallic silver and gold glitter lattice pattern. (The predominant color is the gold, the silver is not very prominent.) The ribbons are folded in a triangular pattern and overlapped to create a whimsical pine cone shape.

This decoration is perfect throughout the Christmas holiday season and can be displayed in a decorative bowl on your coffee table, hung from a mantel shelf, or used as a decoration on your holiday tree. The ribbon hanger at the top is removable if you decide not to use it as a hung ornament. Though the ornament appears to be heavy it is rather lightweight and unlike most fancy ornaments it will not break if dropped. (Amen to that!)

These make a one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, and classy keepsake gift for anyone on your list, whether it is an office coworker gift exchange, teacher, beloved family member, or treasured life-long friend. They are lovingly received by all and a much better choice than that dreaded fruit cake!

History:
This ribbon pine cone ornament is adapted from a Victorian-era craft. Its predecessor was made with balls of tightly woven cloth or an old sock (long before the invention of Styrofoam in 1954) to which elegantly-colored fabrics were folded, arranged, and pinned to create the ornament. The technique was passed down from generation to generation.

Taught to me by my mother, I use an average of 250 pins and approximately 13 feet of wired floral ribbon which I cut and fold before attaching it to a Styrofoam egg form. The entire process takes about 2 hours to complete. (The perfect length of time to watch a Christmas movie!)

Jewelry Care & Cleaning: Store jewelry in an airtight bag out of direct sunlight with an anti-tarnish strip enclosed. Lightly scrub with a soft bristle toothbrush and warm soapy water (or even a gentle toothpaste) for regular cleanings. To remove tarnish from silver use an instant tarnish-remover jewelry cleaner such as The Bead Buddy. Check package instructions on any commercial jewelry cleaners before using.
Americana Brooches: Treat with stain remover if needed, wash by hand and air-dry. Do not use bleach-containing detergents or machine wash. To smooth out any wrinkles after washing, use an iron on the "cotton" setting along the outside edge of the fabric only. Do not use iron over felt backing, button, or other metal components.
