This is a handmade hair ornament that I made out of silk chirimen-- the patterned fabric was something I bought in Japan, and the solid petals are hand-dyed to match.
You can see my model wearing it here: hanatsukuri.deviantart.com/art…
The fabric is called "flowers and hand drums"
This is a handmade hair ornament.
I folded each petal individually, and arranged it into this flower design.
When looking at this one, I see a beautiful moon in the summer's night...or, as some of you have kindly suggested, a "Summer's Moon Masquerade!"
How about you? What does it remind you of?
