These two temari balls are each 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) in diameter, wrapped in baby blue and white thread and hand-embroidered with coordinating shades of blue, pink and white pearl cotton embroidery threads. This listing is for the pair of temari, which are lovely to group together to bring a fantastic design element and conversation piece to your home or office.

Temari is the ancient Japanese folk art of silk embroidered thread balls, originally made by noble women from silken threads pulled from old kimonos. Used originally hundreds of years ago for child's play, today the art of temari is becoming more regarded around the world.

I am passionate about bringing together modern color schemes, unique designs, and precise stitching details into my art. I hand-wrap each ball first with yarn, then thread, then stitch my own modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese designs with silky cotton embroidery threads.

Please note: I can attach a hanging thread if you desire one as these are lightweight ornaments, otherwise this is a unique art piece to display on a candle holder, tucked in a basket, or with a group of other temari.

Shipped first class in a unique gift basket along with a brief history of the craft.

Size: 2.5" (6.4 cm) each
