Ornament Filials

Hi everyone,

I'm an absolute beginner and I took my first woodworking class a few days ago and loved it!! I'm looking into getting all of the things I need to turn a few basic ornaments so I can keep practicing but I'm having trouble locating one item, the filials. I don't know if I'm searching for the wrong terms but I've only found two websites that sell them and I was hoping to find more until I am comfortable with making my own. To illustrate what I'm looking for you can view this picture here.

I also found the ones at the woodcraft.com store as well. Are these that elusive to find or am I just looking in the wrong places? Thank you in advance for helping me.

Most people simply make their own finial or icicyles as some call them. They don't have to be fancy. Make them to whatever skill level you have.
