This decorative ball is 3 inches in diameter, hand-wrapped in jet black thread, carefully hand stitched with bold diamonds in modern tones of chartreuse green, steely purples and grays, and cool blue cotton embroidery threads. This color combination has a rather funky, retro vibe that is so modern today.

Stunning and beautiful to display anywhere, these are fabulous conversation pieces, modern design items, memorable and unique gifts, or cherished heirlooms!

Temari is the ancient Japanese folk art of silk embroidered thread balls, originally made by noble women from silken threads pulled from old kimonos.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 version 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: 3"
Weight: 2 oz.
