A Bee Skep is a coiled straw hive that was used before today's modern hives.
Old World Christmas figural glass ornaments are hand crafted using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds, then a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. They are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of steps to achieve beautiful creations.
