Cut Up Negatives Make For Positively Awesome Christmas Ornaments at Glak Love.

Artist and Principal Designer Angelyn Pass of Atanta Georgia’s Glak Love has trademarked Celluloidic Artistry™, a process in which she turns exposed film negatives into positively stunning, art, quirky holiday ornaments and jewelry.

An on-hiatus actress, she found herself cutting up old film negatives because, as she says “…I don’t know, maybe it was cathartic.”  She became mesmerized by the moments captured on film and was inspired to begin making collages out of them, which resulted in several different items including these lovely and unusual handmade, Christmas ornaments.

Each ornament measures 80mm, has glitter ‘snow’ in the ball and a ribbon attached for hanging.

Shipping Details: Shipped via First Class mail, with shipping times varying by destination. For domestic shipping, please allow up to 1 week for delivery; For International, please allow 2 – 3 weeks for shipping. Orders over 2 ornaments are shipped via Priority Mail. Each ornament comes in its own gift box, ready to give as a present to someone special, including yourself.
