My ornament addiction has taken me to a whole new level when I started researching the different shapes of reflector ornaments from the 50s and 60s.  I am completely obsessed with that time period and the ornaments are amazing.

Excellent!  They remind me of some family ornaments I have from my childhood---dating back at least to the 1940's & 50's.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Beautiful.  I love the stitching on the mirrors and the pretty colours you used.  Can you recommend a book on this kind of ornament or did make them up yourself?

I made the patterns myself.  I basically looked through google images to get inspiration, then I folded paper on half and started cutting.  There are many tutorials on the internet for the shisha stitch (Indian mirror embroidery).
