The Exploding Snowball
This is a BBG Imaginations creation - a Christmas ornament made from vintage costume jewelry! The rhinestones and sequins and beads are removed from old necklaces and brooches and used to create these unique Christmas ornaments! I never expected to find anything like THIS at a Chili Cookoff but they had a vendor booth there yesterday! And I will be seeing them again, today.

By the way... BBG stands for Bob McDougal, Bob Wickson & Greta (an adorable little Yorkie who greets everyone who comes into her booth!). You can see more handcrafted jewelry in their etsy shop here:

7. Jewellery - "Be Dazzling" Look for something or someone uniquely decorated with baubles, beads or jewels.....Example a car completely covered in jewels.

Nicely made. Are the sequin looking things pop-rivets ?

I think they are just plastic sequins, the kind you can buy at Michael's or A.C. Moore. The danglies and the rhinestones are vintage, from broken vintage jewelry that people give him, or that he finds at yard sales and antique shops.

I remember the church ladies making a rough-around-the edges version of these for the Christmas Fair. They used to stick all sorts of things in styrofoam balls and put a hanger on it.

The man who makes these told me that he paints the styrofoam first, with a colored paint, and then coats it with glitter, so the white styrofoam doesn't show through. Then he sticks the shiny things on.
