They look nice, and very colorful. I like how you make some bells on the angle and the color dangling strings at the bottom.

They are "Duan Wu" (Dragon Boat Festival) rice ball ornament, knew them ever since I was a kid, and get the taste the real ones too  Grin

Curious where are you going to hang them?

Well believe it or not the chim chi- was shown to me during high school.. an alternative art teacher showed us how ta make em... and she learned how ta make them when she live in Hong-Kong  and chim chi is the names of the two boys who invented them.... because their a child has to invent something be for they are 12 otherwise get kick from school and put ta work...
So I decided to take the wonderful idea of the chim-chi and  add bells and a tassel and put chakra stones in the middle of them for aura cleansing/energy field and hang them in my bedroom... car. basement around my craft area... your suppose ta twirl it clockwise when you need a change of mental pace or to get negativity out of the room(hence why it has bells) I make them in All Sorts of colours... but I want  them know as medaphysical  ornaments instead of just (Oh thats cute cat toy) thats why i only posted the rainbow ones
