Learn how to make beautiful Japanese diamond ornaments in 5 sizes with this template tool kit
Diamond ornaments are a feature in many of the Japanese Hishikazari hanging mobile ornaments - these ornaments are often created to bring good luck or to ward off bad luck.
The technique of wrapping threads around the shape is so similar to wrapping threads over buttons that anyone who has tried button making should find this very enjoyable.
We have redesigned our original tools to create a single, stronger tool that is easier to use. The glass edge acrylic is easy to see, and as there is now only one tool for five sizes, there is no risk of losing a small piece.
The tool is designed to make graduated sizes - 10mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm and 30mm.
You'll receive full instructions outlining not only the technique to make the basic shapes and to wrap them using the basic wrapping technique, but also a woven variation, as well as how to cover the shape with fabric.
The pack also contains a scoring tool, card and two skeins of thread.
You'll also need a pencil, scissors and tape.
