Showcase the majestic salmon on your tree this Christmas with this Jody Bergsma Salmon Ornament by Inner Beauty. Featuring the inspired piece by Bergsma called "The Journey Home", this gorgeous glass ornament is unique in its own right, being painted completely from the inside. Specially trained artists use a set of bent brushes to bring these unique Christmas decorations to life. This is truly a skill to be learned as the painting has to be envisioned backwards. Here, the painters must start with the blacks of the eyes of the fish, then layer on the color finishing with the backgrounds. Each ornament is then finished with a golden tassel to add an extra element of beauty to the hanging.
Jody Bergsma lives in Bellingham, WA with her family and a range of animals. Variety is a constant element of Jody's life as she also creates art through a variety of mediums. Blending together a love of the outdoors and art with an engineering degree, her pieces often materialize in a unique display of geometric shapes combined with fluid painting techniques. Jody has done everything from children's illustrations, to watercolor illustrations, and oil paintings. This particular piece pays tribute to the journey the salmon makes from the ocean against the current upstream to lay eggs in gravel creek beds, known as a salmon run. Watch the salmon swim in the twinkling of your Christmas lights with this Jody Bergsma Salmon Ornament by Inner Beauty.
