This ornament was made for my valentine of 50 years, for Valentines day 2016. It was based on a real snowflake. Click here to see the original photograph. My Valentine is made of American Holly, Ohio Buckeye and Bloodwood. Holly and Buckeye look the same but Holly is stronger and is used for the backbone of each arm. The rest of the white wood is Ohio Buckeye. Ohio Buckeye is native to Ohio, Kentucky and eastern United States. The American Holly came from Chris Krauskopf's back yard here in Louisville.
