Sequin Gourd Ornaments


The fruit of the calabash tree provides the base for these fantastic ornaments. Covered with stretch fabric and then meticulously stitched with colorful swirls of beads and sequins - each and every ornament is a perfect work of beaded art derived from Haiti's long tradition of sparkling bead-and-sequin vodou flags. In vivid colors and textures, voudou flags depict deities of Catholic, West African and indigenous Taino origin. Each one-of-a-kind handmade ornament is approximately 3 - 4" round and is sold separately.
