History of Ornament Designs
Ornament Designs all started back in early 2009. I was unemployed, staying with my parents while my husband was in Japan looking for work. Out of severe boredom I made a time laps video of myself making a sequined ornament and I posted it to YouTube. That was the beginning of what has now become a YouTube channel with over 7000 subscribers, a website, and this Etsy shop.
You can watch that original YouTube video at this link:

Please visit my website http://ornamentdesigns.com You can see my creative process and the techniques I use to make my ornaments.

Japanese Influence
Living in Japan has a huge influence on my designs. Temari balls are particularly inspirational. Japanese fabric comes in a variety of traditional motifs and I love discovering new patterns. Most of fabric I use has been made and/or printed in Japan ensuring an authentic “Made in Japan” product.

Inspiration for my designs come from almost anywhere. It could be something I see on the street, or something I stumble upon while on the internet. Even customers' ideas have inspired several of my products. I am happy to work with you on a custom order for a finished ornament or a kit. Please contact me by email at alyx [!at] ornamentdesigns.com or send me a message here on Etsy and let's see if we can bring your idea to life.
