My mom made this same sort of ornament about 20 years ago, but her's were not nearly so well done. These ones are stunning!

The long thin beads are called bugle beads.

These are lovely - I especially like the turquoise one since it is not a normal ornament color.

You start with a styrofoam ball.  You thread a bugle bead and a sequin on a straight pin poke it into the ball.  Repeat a zillion times until the ball is covered.
