Bunny and Sakura Cherry Blossoms: spring at last.

Description

...athough I'm sure it's still snowing where many of you are, we have lovely warm weather here (sometimes. also a lot of cloudy, cool weather). So! I hope you're enjoying the weather wherever you are.

...you have probably seen my rabbit kanzashi before, but this one has pink blossoms, so instantly more spring-like, isn't it?

The kanzashi rabbits are tsumami zaiku (commonly called kanzashi, though these are on clips), so they're made out of painstakingly folded silk squares. I like to use paper-clay (light-weight and multi-layered) face-plates to give them a softer, rounder feel. The cherry blossoms (sakura) are also made of silk, but I hand-dyed those to give them a delicate, springy feel.

Thoughts?
