Lilac Kanzashi Model.

Anyway, I designed and made these original hairpins / kanzashi from hand dyed silk on an ornate clip. The silver stems are on bobby pins, so you can leave them off if you like. The yellow stamens are a fun, realistic touch in place of my usual beads, so I think they make these seem so delicate.

So, the purples are hand-dyed satiny charmeuse silk, while the white is crisp and delicate habutae. The art of kanzashi is very like origami, but with glue to adhere it to the hairpin and help it last for years.

:bulletgreen: Here, you can see the lilacs by themselves: Lilac Kanzashi: Purple and White hairpin by hanatsukuri

OH! Thank you very much for the daily deviation. Llama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]  I am very pleased~ this design was probably my favorite of that year. :huggle:

Um, so, in case you're interested in how to make this craft-- it's not very well known, but very fun and creative. You can make hair pieces out of silk, or even window decorations to hang on a silk flower arrangement, and lots of other uses.  It's kind of really good timing for this DD, because I'm involved in a group self-publishing a book on how to make this kind of artisan craft. If you're interested, do look here: Tsumami Zaiku: An Artisan's Guide to Kanzashi by hanatsukuri Cute Emoticon Blushing  yes, I'm really embarrassed to self-promote (I am naturally a shy person...), but take a look! Everyone on the team is really talented.
