Giving an ornament with a special meaning is always a great gift, but it’s even better when you’ve made it yourself!

Rachel Sims is giving the people of the Cape Fear region that opportunity this holiday season.

Sims owns a business called Studio Fuzzishu where she specializes in silversmithing, chain-mail, glass bead making, and glass ornaments.

All throughout the month of December she is offering DIY glass-blown ornament making workshops at her workspace in A Christmas Shoppe in downtown Wilmington.

Each ornament takes about 10 minutes to make and 20-30 minutes to cool.

You get to choose your color and take your best shot at blowing the glass.

Sims then finishes off the ornaments with one of her glass beads.

It costs $25 to make the ornament.

Sessions are by appointment and you must call Rachel at 515-402-8143 to reserve your session.
