Most of you have probably seen the glass ornaments, either by the online browsing, or while buying Christmas ornaments. These pretty accessories are available in two forms, the transparent balls and the painted ornaments. The transparent balls may hold a letter, a photo or a small figure inside, just like the snow globes. There are also carved shapes, like angels and snowflakes, coming with golden trimming along the edges.
The other type of glass ornaments is the colored, or painted, ornaments. This type comes in many colors, with glitter and other details on the surface of the Christmas balls. There are, of course, other shapes which may come in all-glittered designs, with rhinestones. The mercury glass ornaments are classified among the fused ornaments, which come in many colors fused into one another, without specific lining or boundaries.
