Handmade hair ornaments. :love:


These pieces are exceptional in skill, composition, or both. Often both. :D enjoy looking at these wonderful artists' work!



Maiko Pink kanzashi pair by hanatsukuri
Maiko Pink kanzashi pair
A remake of my momohime kanzashi pair! This is the first incarnation: This one is less round, and more flat to accomodate for the lovely customer's hair style. 

The little box is cute, isn't it? :) A fun background to shoot with. ;) More pictures on etsy! Pink Kimono Silk: Momohime Etsy

Edit: I added 4 more leaves to the flowers to better match Momohime's design. :heart: You can see the updated look on etsy~
Grean Leaf Kanzashi: hand dyed silk. by hanatsukuri
Grean Leaf Kanzashi: hand dyed silk.
After a discussion with :iconeverafterdesigns:  here: (Pastel Leaf design) , I thought I'd post a picture of a leaf with a different sort of stem. I'm still thinking of other options. (The leaf itself isn't larger than 1.75" at the widest point...probably more like 1.5"...)

 Hand dyed~ I think there are 3 different shades of green here. I'm particularly fond of the yellow-y tips. :heart:

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 3, 2014, 1:01 PM

So I've safely relocated! I got lost I-don't-know-how-many times, but I found an art store, 2 cake shops, the groceries, and a lot of interesting museums. So far, I'm liking the UK quite a lot. :floating:

I'm going to be catching up with uploading my recent kanzashi over the next several weeks~ I don't want to flood your inboxes, so we'll take it slow. But some interesting photos coming up:
* Interesting flowers: Juniper, Pine-cones, Lilac, holly
* Other pretty flowers & designs to be seen.... ^_^ Like plum, sakura, and leaves
 * More Creatures: Two peacocks, another crane, a gray phoenix (inspired by a previous custom order for my friend :iconkiri-n: , a new shot of my bunnies

So it should be fun. I'll edit them slowly! ♥

Since I'm now located in the UK, custom orders and requests for kanzashi are now on hold for the foreseeable future; at least for the next year while I get used to the idea of being in school. :heart: I may make a limited number of original designs on my own, but that is for stress-relief and entirely up to my schedule. But I will have some ready-made kanzashi up at my shop: when it finishes relocating! ♥ (But first, it's going to Cons and Art Fairs) Need I say it? Yes, I think so. Thank you Quyen, you are amazing. :iconinuyatta:  ^_^!! Say hi to her if you see her-- and then tell me; we'd both be thrilled.
