The US Ornament artist collection here at Bronner's includes these wonderful USA ornament artisans: Teresa Thibault created Heart Gifts in her Concord, North Carolina home in 1992. That Christmas, she wanted to have a tree with ornaments that would explain to her children that Jesus is the heart of Christmas. After she could not find any ornaments in the stores in her area, her husband suggested that she make them herself. Born and raised in Michigan, Pam Chatley has painted since childhood and enjoys painting whimsical characters. Pam's designs are original and handpainted ornaments and include her unique "SockHeads"TM. Proudly made in the USA artisans section includes ornaments hand painted by artist Lisa Starcher. Ginger Cottages are exquisitely hand-crafted from wood in the USA by artist Glenn A. Crider.
