summer sunflowers: hand dyed kanzashi hair flowers


Summer, the time for the lovely sunflower! It's a great accessory for a wonderful hair do... warm and cheerful. I used silk which I hand dyed with gradation for the soft petals, and brown kimono fabric and a vintage button for an all original design.

I like the golden color...with cadmium yellow and goldenrod accents...because it's really energetic and genki. It's like a little sun. :nod: hope my friend likes it.

ひまわり 🌻 素敵な のイメージですので、手染めの正絹で柔らかい花びらを表現してみました。丸い花びらは優しい気持ち! 元気を浮かんでくる色合いをイメージしてデザインしましたので、赤支子 (オレンジ・黄色)に染めた。


So the round petal one is for my friend Quyen. other news, I finally have internet in my home. :nod: And I've successfully moved to Japan-- next step-- work on art more. *Sheepish* my etsy is back up, btw!

You're very welcome. And I love them very much! Do you style your works after other flowers too? Like orchids and blossoms?

I love the brooches in the center of these. It reminds me of the roaring 20's, full of life, and energy. 

I'm so sorry I missed you in Japan. I hope you both are feeling better and that you are having a FABULOUS time in Tokyo, I know from the (sadly) shorty time I spent there that it is a truly amazing place. OH well, if I have my way, it won't be the last time I'm in Japan. :P

:D :D oooh, I love that interpretation. 20s fashion and feminist New Women are so interesting to me. :D

I'm sorry I missed you too~~ I've been sick (and so has Tara) off and on since I got here. So many new germs/viruses I guess. >.> IF you come back to Japan hopefully I'll be more energetic (and maybe a job that involves less viruses...) and can see you in person. I'd love to share a cuppa tea~

I understand that. I'm trying to pay off my credit card for buying the ticket here myself. XD and that's with my new job. I need a new new job, xD

:D I'll look forward to seeing you then!

They've just started opening - last year I had lots of particularly large sunflowers, but the second generation now this year tends to lean towards multiple heads - they're still lovely all the same to wake up and see their sunny faces :)
