At Calliope Designs, our favorite holiday tradition is dressing up the Christmas tree with sentimental decorations that commemorate all of life’s most meaningful moments. That is why each ornament you order from us is handmade just for you with the utmost care.

Calliope Designs Ornaments are Handmade

Calliope Designs personalized ornaments are handmade from clay dough, (a polymer clay similar to FIMO), that are designed and produced just for our customers. We have also started carrying a handpainted resin ornament line, to give you even more design choices! Each design has its own unique and whimsical personality and is always delicately crafted to ensure its durability and quality.  

Our charming handmade clay ornaments do require some time to prepare and personalize, so once your order has been placed please allow a 3 day processing time.

Design Your Own Christmas Ornaments

At Calliope Designs, we also offer the option to design your very own personalized family and pet ornaments! These custom-designed mementos do require a bit more time for our artists to create depending on the number of family members or pets you add to your unique design.

 After you have designed your own family and pet ornaments please allow a 5-7 day processing time for us to prepare and personalize your custom ornament designs.

Calliope Ornaments are Personalized by Hand

Our talented Calliope Designs calligraphers are located locally in Santa Rosa, and are responsible for hand inscribing your ornaments exactly to your personalized specification. With delicate calligraphy skills, they will detail each Christmas ornament with your requested names, dates, and phrases.

The ink we use to add the perfect personalized touch to your ornaments is guaranteed to never rub off, or smudge. We always make sure to use high quality permanent black ink to ensure all inscriptions are clearly legible and elegantly applied.

All Our Personalized Ornaments are Inspected to Ensure the Highest Quality

Once your custom ornament is personalized, they will go through a final quality control inspection to ensure your satisfaction. Our quality control team at Calliope Designs will thoroughly inspect and confirm your Christmas ornaments are free of any scratches, smudges, or weak points before it is shipped directly to your desired location. 

Names can be tricky, and we are all human, so if we miss something we are always quick to fix our error!
