Making Personalized, Handcrafted Bread Dough Ornaments in our Kitchen since 1972!

When Dorr and Stephanie Eddy began making bread dough ornaments in their kitchen in 1972 they had no idea how popular their personalized Christmas tree decorations would become. Today, after more than 44 years of distributing their personalized Christmas tree ornaments through fine retailers and major department stores nationwide, their whimsical little ornaments are treasured by children and grownups all over the world!

While it is no longer possible for Dorr and Stephanie to make these custom ornaments themselves, they are still individually handmade using many of the tools and techniques developed over the years. Calliope Designs personalized ornaments are now made of a durable and lightweight polymer clay, and they are all still the original creations of Dorr Eddy. This year items from a guest artist have been added to enhance the selection for you, our customer.

It’s our pleasure to personalize and send our ornaments to you from our company studio in Santa Rosa, California. Furthermore, it’s our goal to bring a smile to your face when you open your package from Calliope Designs.

To all of you, from all of us at Calliope Designs, Thank you and Happy Holidays!!
