Using ancient techniques, glassblowers in Cairo create these shimmering ornaments by hand. Molded glass was made as early as 1200 B.C., and excavations at the el-Lisht archaeological site, just south of Cairo, reveal vessels that were decorated by applying swirls of precious metal to still-hot glass. These modern accents reflect that tradition, as artisans hand-paint the translucent color and add 24-karat gold swirls. Whether destined to become heirloom Christmas ornaments or colorful sun catchers, they continue age-old craft traditions. Handmade in Egypt.
