Made with a mixture of finest quality Japanese habotai silk and polyester polysilk. These kanzashi hair clips are inspired by my love of all things ombre (fade from one colour to another) so I decided to make some ombre kanzashi flowers myself! The additional colour give more texture to the piece, making a more subtle item than a plain coloured kanzashi.
All pieces are made to order. Please allow 1 week from date of payment for the item to be made before it is posted.
All flowers are large (4 inches diameter), 16 petal flowers with 2 layers of 8 petals around, made with a mixture of silk and polysilk.
Each piece is backed with a crocodile hair clip. If you would like me to add a brooch back as well please mention it when you order.
Please mention your choice of stamen colour when you order, otherwise you will receive a random colour. Please choose from Black, white, pale pink, pale purple, purple, red, bright pink, grey, pale brown, ivory stamens or a gold beadcap.
Please bear in mind that the colours you see on your screen may not exactly match the appearance of the kanzashi 'in the flesh', though I have tried to show them as accurately as possible!

Kanzashi are Japanese hair ornaments. Hana kanzashi means ‘flower kanzashi’ and simply refers to the flower shape of the hair accessories. Tsumami kanzashi means kanzashi that are made by pinching silk to form petals and is the Japanese traditional craft which inspires my own kanzashi.
