While in the company’s gift-wrap and party department, Sue created what would become her first Keepsake Ornament.
“I came up with this group of elf characters who interacted playfully with nature, and I did three pieces of artwork featuring the elves. One was chosen for a ball ornament for the 1972 line,” Sue says. That ornament, simply named Elves, features a group ice-skating on a rink made from a sardine can.
Part of a collection of 6 Hallmark glass ball ornaments with decorative bands included in the original 1973 Keepsake Ornament Collection.
