Ginny Snowe, artisan and owner of Snowe Fine Handcrafts, offers her own hand made ornaments using natural materials and inspired by international Christmas traditions. Her woven flat reed reindeer remind her of the traditional Swedish woven straw reindeer.
Ginny fashions each piece by hand, one at a time, in her shop in Bellingham, Washington. To make the reindeer, she soaks the cuts the reed, weaves the design, trims each piece, dries it and adds a light coating of shellac to preserve the ornament. The finishing touch of a loop of ribbon prepares the reindeer to be hung on the celebratory tree.
