Traditional beaded decoration / Decoración tradicional de abalorios / Décoration traditionnelle de perles / Decoração tradicional de miçangas de vidro

In English:

Himmeli.

This Finnish traditional decoration has experienced a new birth in Finland. Originally it was a Christmas decoration, in fact it is yet today, but its use has increased to decorate our homes at other times. Now “everyone” makes it. What is this traditional Finnish decoration called? It is Himmeli. Most probably the word Himmeli comes probably from German word Himmel meaning Heaven or sky.

Originally Himmelis were made from rye straws and their traditional basic forms are octahedron. Nowadays people make Himmelis also from colorful drinking straws. Combining multiple octahedrons to each other is the basic idea. Even You can make it. My wife guides You make Himmeli step by step using long glass tube beads starting with one triangle. For one octahedrons man needs 8 triangles. The first photo shows the final Himmeli and then many steps presenting unfinished Himmeli. Last three photos show smaller basic Himmeli.

En español:

Esta decoración tradicional finlandés ha experimentado un nuevo nacimiento en Finlandia. Originalmente se trataba de una decoración de Navidad, de hecho, aún hoy en día, pero su uso se ha incrementado para decorar nuestros hogares en otras ocasiones. Ahora “todo el mundo” lo hace. ¿Cómo se llama esta decoración tradicional finlandesa? Es Himmeli. Lo más probable es que la palabra Himmeli proviene de la palabra alemana que significa Himmel cielo o el cielo.

Originalmente Himmelis fueron hechas de las pajas de centeno y sus formas básicas tradicionales son octaedros. Hoy en día la gente hace Himmelis también de pajitas de beber colores. Combinación de varios octaedros el uno al otro es la idea básica. Incluso puede hacerlo. Mi esposa guía Usted hace paso a paso Himmeli utilizando canutillos largos de cristal a partir de un triángulo. Por un octaedros se necesita 8 triángulos. La primera foto le muestra a Himmeli final y luego muchos pasos que presentan inacabado Himmeli. Últimas tres fotos muestran menor Himmeli básica.

Comment cette décoration traditionnelle finlandaise a appelée? Il est Himmeli. Très probablement le mot Himmeli vient de mot allemand Himmel qui signifie ciel ou le ciel.

A l’origine Himmelis ont été faites à partir de pailles de seigle et leurs formes de base traditionnelles sont octaèdres. Aujourd’hui, les gens font Himmelis aussi de pailles colorés. En combinant de plusieurs octaèdres l’un l’autre est l’idée fondamentale. Même si vous pouvez le faire. Ma femme Vous guide à faire pas à pas Himmeli utilisant des longues perles en verre commençant par un triangle. Pour un octaèdre on a besoin de 8 triangles. La première photoVous montre la finale Himmeli et puis de nombreuses étapes présentant inachevé Himmeli. Trois dernières photos montrent petite Himmeli basique.

Combinando vários octaedros uns aos outros é a idéia básica. Até mesmo você pode fazêr-lo.

    • Betunada.

      Yo sé que mi español es malo, claro que si. Bueno, lo aprendí en 1969 cuando trabajaba en las Islas Canarias durante cuatro meses y medio. Nunca aprendí escribir español! Esta fue la primera vez que alguien dijo que mi español es mala. He viajado casi en todos los países de América del Sur muchas veces, una vez en Guatemala y nadie acusó a mi mala español.

      La mayoría de mis visitantes vienen de Sur y Centro América . Me siento orgulloso de eso que aman mi blog; aunque soy viejo.

      No estoy preocupado acerca de la palabra canutillo. Busqué en Internet y la palabra que debe ser correcta, digas lo que digas. Seis vínculos que Vos muestran lo que canutillos son al hacer artesanía!

      Canutillos; Spanish – English.

  13. Looks very nice! May I ask how long Anja needed to complete her work? Roughly only, Matti. And is she cutting the pieces herself (one by one, exact size) or does one buy a little bag with prepared and pre-shortened straws (little tubes)? I’m quite curious, I know … ;-))

    • Hi Michèle.

      About one week, but not making it from the morning to the evening. However, she was forced to dismantle something due to an error. He bought package in which all had the same length. There are beads with various lengths and multiple colors available. She did not remember how many packages this Himmeli required. You could start with a small Himmeli. Thank You asking questions.

      Have a great day!
