About DawsonDavisDesigns

Sales 87
On Etsy since 2018

While visiting a friend’s house when I was a little girl (she had horses!), I saw her mother rolling strips of paper on a tray. I was curious, and she told me about what she was doing. I thought it was really neat that she could take rolled up paper and shape it into these elaborate pictures to make art. Being 7 at the time, I then forgot all about it. (Did I mention that there were horses?)

Fast forward 30-plus years to the local YMCA where my son was taking swim lessons. The holidays were fast approaching, and being an over-achiever, I was working on number 6 of 7 cross-stitch projects that I was making as gifts for my family. One of the pool staff struck up a conversation about the types of crafts she has done, and mentioned quilling. I couldn’t remember ever hearing of it before, so she told me what it was and showed me some pictures of what she had made.

Being heartily sick of cross stitch by this time, I went home and googled it. I saw an image of a quilled snowflake inside a glass ornament, and said to myself- “Challenge accepted!” I bought some clear glass ornaments in a post- season sale, and I experimented until I figured out how to assemble a snowflake inside.

After that accomplishment came the obligatory bragging. My sister took one look at it, and said, "That's really cool! You should sell them!"

And thus, Dawson-Davis Designs, LLC was born.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take you to make an ornament?

It takes between 2-4 hours to complete an ornament, depending on the complexity.

Do you offer other colors?

Not at this time. If I receive more requests to add colors, I will re-evaluate this.

How did you get THAT inside THERE?

Determination, practice, and patience!

How are the ornaments packaged?

Each type of ornament comes in a custom gift box that I designed with presentation and security in mind, and made from acid-free materials to ensure the long life of the ornament. I recommend storing the ornaments in their boxes when not in use.

When packaged for shipping, the ornament boxes are surrounded on all sides with bio-degradable packaging peanuts inside a sturdy box. I conducted extensive shipping trials using this method with no breakage occurring. I buy insurance on all items I ship.

How accurate are your colors? Are paper samples available?

I understand that you might be concerned about matching a certain shade, and color can vary wildly between monitors. I would be happy to send you a small piece of the paper I use for your reference free of charge.

Help! My snowflake is caught on the wire & isn't hanging in the center of the glass ornament- what do I do?

The thread suspending the snowflake in the orb can sometimes get wrapped around the wire during shipping. If this happens, carefully pull the wire hanger out of the cap, which should allow the snowflake to hang freely. Gently squeeze the end of the wire hanger as required to reinsert it into the holes in the cap. If that doesn't fix the problem, contact me.
