This Japanese style hair ornament combines an upcycled chopstick with felt, embroidery, beads and a GEMMA microcontroller. A NeoPixel Jewel provides the real beauty with kaleidoscopic flower designs. Make a hair stick for every season of the year and you’ll be the tea ceremony favorite. Don’t have long hair? No worries, just eliminate the chopstick and glue/stitch a barrette on the back of your ornament.
