Christopher Radko has awed customers and collectors alike with his stunning assortment of beautifully handcrafted ornaments. The story of Christopher Radko® Ornaments began while celebrating Christmas with his family. An unfortunate incident occurred: the family's Christmas tree took a tumble when the tree stand gave out, causing years' worth of precious family ornaments to come crashing down and breaking. Christopher decided that he had to find a way to recreate the beautiful ornaments that his family had cherished for generations. He went to Poland to seek out someone who could help him. After hard work and perseverance, Christopher had not only made new Radko ornaments for the family, but had developed his own style, which quickly caught on with the retail world. The first collection of Christopher Radko Ornaments was developed in 1986. The collection has grown, and his work has been sold through many high-end stores. Each year special ornaments are made and then sold to raise money for a variety of charities, including breast cancer and children's causes. So what makes a Christopher Radko ornament so special? Besides the fact that each ornament is designed with a lot of thought and love, the ornaments are very brightly colored and intricately detailed. They range in shapes and sizes, and usually come in limited editions, making them important items for collectors. Some people have been known to have nothing but Christopher Radko Ornaments on their entire tree.
