This pendant is hand painted on white glass tile. The pendant is painted in a few layers before final finish and fired in a kiln to make the color permanent. Finally, UV resistant coating was sprayed for added protection of the color. It can be washed in water with common detergents. A plated bail is added to the pendant.

Unique Christmas decorations - The home of the Tomte!
A Tomte (or Nisse) is a mythical creature of Scandinavian folklore. Tomtar were believed to take care of a farmer's home and children and protect them from misfortune, in particular at night, when the housefolk were asleep. In the late 1800s they became the bearers of Christmas (Jul) presents and the little creature you see now is known as a Jultomte in Sweden. The Jultomte, although much like Father Christmas, doesn't live on the North Pole, but in the forest; he doesn’t come down the chimney at night, but through the front door, delivering the presents directly to the children who have put out a bowl of porridge for him on Christmas Eve.
