Kusudama 'Hanahitai Mitsuya' by Ilyere
Kusudama 'Hanahitai Mitsuya'
And this one is called 花額三ツ矢!

Another model from "Kusudama Origami - Hanakiriko", this one expands on "Mitsuya Kiriko" a little and allows for extra units to be slotted in place of the square faces. This time, I added a matching coloured Sonobe cube and an embroidery tassel.

Kusudama 'Mitsuya Kiriko' by Ilyere
Kusudama 'Mitsuya Kiriko'
The name is actually just a direct reading from the book. It's called 三ツ矢切子. I don't actually know what it means, so I just took the Romaji reading of it. XD

I bought a book from the famed kusudama artist Tomoko Fuse, simply called "Kusudama Origami - Hanakiriko" (
花切子 on the book, Romaji again) and this is one of the first models in it. It also convinced me to finally use my pattern chiyogami paper stash, as I never ever use it. XD
My own touches to the model were the beads and the Yoshizawa v2 butterflies that hang below it.

Flower charm macrame bracelet by Ilyere
Flower charm macrame bracelet
Something I haven't done before, macrame! Macrame is the art of knotting to create things like bracelets and necklaces. Actually, I was shopping around on this site and came across a starter kit for macrame. And, seeing as I had some interest in it, I thought why not buy a kit? This is the result of following the guide and about two or so hours. It's surprisingly simple to start, and the beads really help make it look pretty!

Artist | Student | Artisan Crafts
United Kingdom
I'm a full-time university student studying Computer Science, so life is quite busy at the moment, but in my spare time, I like to dabble in all kinds of artisan crafts.
My main speciality is origami and jewellery, but I've been trying to do more things with sewing.
I don't update my DA the most; I update my Facebook page more often with WIPs and the like, so I would prefer if you followed me there. :3

Interests
Sadly, I'm no longer a student of Cambridge. The course was far too difficult for me, and I was very unprepared for the workload I received. I spent a lot of time attempting to study the material and understand things, but I couldn't cope with it and had many problems during the length of the year, both academically and health-wise. The exams I sat were not nice, I knew I was in big trouble after the first one.

So over the summer, I've managed to successfully apply for a place at Birmingham. Same course (Computer Science), but a lot closer to home. (Only an hour's train ride compared to three!) And I live in a lovely area that's close to the Chinese quarter, yummy food and snacks, haha! I'm a bit worried because I live in accommodation that's meant for Birmingham City students... Not that there's anything wrong with BCU students, but the fact is that I live a little bit further than most freshers of my uni. It's hard for a person like me to get out there and socialise... >w<

I was lucky to be able to secure a place so late in the year. Well, I'm determined to have a successful uni year for the first time, and I don't want to ruin this opportunity I have.
