Overview

This Japanese style hair ornament combines an upcycled chopstick with felt, embroidery, beads and a GEMMA M0 or GEMMA v2 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.

This guide was written for the Gemma v2 board, but can be done with either the original or Gemma M0. We recommend the Gemma M0 as it is easier to use and is more compatible with modern computers!
