I also have been wanting to use these wonderful large size silver bells as Christmas ornaments for over a year now...just didn't have any ideas up my sleeve on how to go about using them with polymer clay. Sculpting is not one of my strengths but I like to give it my best shot. I love the Hallmark angels so I tried my best at creating a similar angel with wire wings and attaching it to the top of the bell. I added the little red heart (which says hope). I did add a wire in the body of the angel to give it support. The wings were made using 28 gauge dark annealed steel wire. I plan to gift this one to a sweet friend of mine in my Pay It Forward group. She has had a tough year.
I sure hope she likes my Angel Bell Ornament. I think I need to go purchase some more of these large silver bells! Maybe next year, I can make more of these cute angels!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
