Winter Wonder. chiffon snowflake tsumami kanzashi

Snowflake So, in the early fall I did a custom order for a lovely customer. She has a lot of cool requests-- this one was for a snowflake tiara. We wanted to keep the design winter-ish, so she requested a chiffon fabric. I chose this semi-transparent chiffon silk, and though you can't tell as much after it's been folded (♥ tsumami techniques...), it's ethereal and almost transparent in places. snowflake :snowflake: revamp

I haven't done snowflakes in a while, and jumped at the chance to do a more complex one. :heart: 切片より雪花ですけれど・・・ I like the look though.

To wear, it's actually rather flexible-- we did two combs connected with wire (which she adjusted herself to get the perfect fit to her outfit) for a half-crown... I also think it looks cute on the back of a bun. :nod: Model picture coming....

The middle one especially has a very unique touch to it that sets it apart from all the other kanzashi snowflakes I usually see. Very nice work! :)

:heart: thank you. I worked out a good half dozen designs for more complex snowflakes, but this one was my favorite too. :love:  glad you noticed the difference.

I can see the transperency of the silk on some of the flowers. I really like how intricate this design is and how much attention to detail was put into the making of it.
