"This piece can be used as a beautiful ornament for the tree or as a rear view mirror car bling. I designed it with beautiful red crystal beads of various sizes. Also clear crystal beads of various sizes. Accented with a bead angel. This project can be done in an evening approximately 3 hours from start to finish. My husband wanted something special to hang from his car rear view mirror and I came up with this design. His brother also wanted one in a different color."

I love this design. Does it hold up well on the tree? It looks like it might be a little heavy, but I have no idea. I love how you change it up and make several with different colors. I could make one for every family member so that they had their own ornament to put on the tree each year.
