beautiful glass ornaments.
Glittered White Owl 4 inch glass ornament

The inspiration for Christina's designs comes to her from many sources: her extensive travels in Europe, Russia, and the Orient; Her studies in Italian, French and Psychology; her former lives as a Ballet dancer and dance therapist, and her experience as Vice President of Marketing with Creative Art Flowers, Inc. for ten years. Her mother was a dress designer and Christina attributes her taste and sensitivity to color palettes from having grown up surrounded by wonderful textiles. There's also her Arabic heritage to which she attributes her love of intricate design and quality craftsmanship. Along with these many diverse influences, Christina's current passion for writing poetic verse serves as the prime inspiration for her designs. Her poetry graces the pages of her catalogs and gives the reader food for thought while they peruse the lovely designs which she offers. As there is never a dearth of inspiration for the poems, so Christina is never at a loss in creating her new designs.
