Since I've got some questions concerning jewellery, I decided to post some origami instead!
Flower ball 1 and
Flower ball 2.
Both were made following diagrams on The Kusudama with regular paper. The first one's paper was painted before assembly, with centers coloured afterwards. The second one was made with squares that I filled with gradient digitally then printed on my printer.

Wow! Those are really pretty! I bet they'd look awesome as tree ornaments. Smiley How big are they?

They're a size of a large orange, a little too big for a tree ornament (on our 180 cm tree).

Kusudama is so pretty! I'm working on some myself with really tiny, tiny paper.

Absolutely beautiful! As someone who has tried origami, and failed miserably I might add, I bow to your greatness!

I love these, especially the white one!  Very pretty.  I would never think of making it monochromatic, but it's very striking that way.  My grandma's friends make smaller versions of these in multicolors...I hang them on my Xmas tree, and my brother has one hanging from the rearview mirror of his car.  (I kind of bet he's the only construction worker with dainty Japanese papercrafts decorating the interior of his car...)  Cheesy

Pretty! You just inspired me to make a flower to adorn my desk! Ah, and I'm thankful for your enlarged picture so I can see how to curl the stamens!
