Iron Maid Art, Minnesota State Ornament
These simple aluminum ornaments are a great gift or addition to a treasured collection. They make for perfect housewarming, wedding, and Christmas gifts, as well as travel souvenirs, home decor, and adding a personal touch to any moment. The aluminum material allows our ornaments to be light and delicate as they dangle from the twine. The tumbled grey/silver finish shines with a slight sparkle in the light. Some subtle surface variation is normal; please refer to our pictures.

Crysten explores many avenues of work, including outdoor exhibition sculptures, art festivals and events, signs, custom work, wholesale and retail products and much more. Without formal art training, she has developed a quiver of creative skills, including metal-working, 2D art, graphic design, business and music. Much of her work is inspired by her background in science and a passion for the natural world, where she can be found rock-climbing, sailing, skiing, scuba diving, living sustainably and traveling in her free time.
