Time to break out the Christmas Decorations?

Not time for me to get them out yet, but it is time to start thinking about them, and I can help you add to your collection of ornaments! Check out these from Nepal, Cambodia and Haiti, all hand made by a woman who is trying to get out of poverty and oppression. To order, click HERE They would make great teacher gifts too! They all come in sets of 3, so divide them up and give them as gifts! Its a gift that gives twice!

Copper Wire Bird Trio:
These 3 little ornaments make a unique addition to your ornament collection. Each bird is individually made by Nepali artisans. In this painstaking process, artisans form a bird from clay and allow it to air-dry. They wrap copper wire around the dried clay form to create the bird-shaped ornament. Then they dissolve the clay with water, so it runs out and leaves the form of the copper wire bird ornament. Thus each bird ornament is unique. 3Lx2.5H inches. Made in Nepal. $24.
