Description

Japanese Temari: "Lace Doily" Design in Iridescent Pale Yellow & Pale Peach, and Metallic Aqua, Teal, and Gold Kreinik Braids on a Dark Teal Cotton Polyester Thread Overlaid with Metallic Teal Blending Filament

Condition: New and Unused

Measurements: the ball is approximately 3" in diameter (7.62 cm)*

There are a number of traditional temari patterns that produce very delicate and lacy designs. This one reminds me of a finely crocheted doily, even though a doily would not usually have an open center. To decorate the centers of the doilies, I stitched gold rays surrounded by quatrefoils in metallic aqua and teal threads. The metallic aqua thread also was used to wrap the obi, over which the iridescent pale yellow and peach threads and the metallic teal thread form a diamond and somewhat kite-shaped pattern. Although more subtle than some of its brightly colored "siblings," this is a stunning temari that took me two days to create!

*Please note that there are no standard sizes for temari. Many modern temari have a Styrofoam ball as their core, and Styrofoam balls--like 2' x 4' lengths of wood--are not actually the size stated. Styrofoam balls consistently run smaller than their packaging indicates. Also, the amount of base thread wrapped on a ball may vary and the amount and thickness of pattern threads will vary greatly from ball to ball. Therefore, the measurements I list are only approximations.

FAQs

Handmade jewelry should be treated gently: do not shower or go swimming while wearing; polish with a soft damp cloth or a silver-polishing cloth; keep in a cool, dry place such as a soft bag or lined box; do not hang necklaces or bracelets--their weight can cause stringing materials to stretch or connecting rings to pull open. If damage does occur, please contact me to discuss repair or replacement.
Please treat temari with respect. Have clean hands when touching them, keep them out of direct sunlight, and display or store them in a dust-free area (or dust off gently as needed). If temari get wet, colors may run; do not scrub threads as they may break. If necessary, please contact me to discuss repair or replacement.
If components of my jewelry have broken due to a flaw in the components or in my construction, I will be happy to make repairs at no charge to you (including return shipping), assuming that I still have the same components available. If they are not available, I will contact you to discuss options for the repair.
For all other reasons for repair, I still will be happy to do whatever I can, usually for a small fee, and assuming that I have the materials required. Buyer is responsible for cost of repair, shipping, and insurance charges.
As for temari, minor thread replacement may be possible depending upon design, location, and availability of thread. Buyer is responsible for cost of repair, shipping, and insurance charges.
