I love this comb.  Is it quilling?

No, they are made from folded squares of silk. Smiley

Oh my goodness! That is beautiful!

You are so talented at making these flowers. This is so pretty. Smiley

Thank you both. Cheesy This project took a lot of work. I would estimate around 20 hours from cutting the squares to finishing.

How exciting! I had a lot of fun doing my first jewelry class. I was scared of the torch at first but I got used to it.

One of my co-workers had a bachelorette party in Las Vegas, so I made her this headband for the event:



She actually forgot to take it with her, so I need to figure out what to do with it now she's not going to use it. I'm sure I'll think of something. More photos:


Prep work. Lots of squares cut out for petals and bases made!


In progress.



Some close ups.


And attached to the headband with the veil.



Did I mention that it lights up? Seemed apropo for the setting.



And here's what it looks like on.

Thank you both for the kind words! Smiley

Another piece I did around the new year. I really wanted to do a crane; I have one in my personal collection but I haven't tried making one before. I thought it might be good for a new year's theme and added some fireworks.



I created a loop and threaded pieces of wire through the loop, then twisted the ends together to create a bunch of them from one central point.


This is what the firework looks like when it's attached to the hair prong and spread out/arranged nicely.


This is how it was attached in the back, with a stronger piece of wire. The decorative sparkly cloth wrapped wire is very thin and wouldn't be very stable on its own.


This is the wire base of the bird. I took a strong piece of wire, bent it into a bird shape, then wrapped the decorative wire around it.


And the wire base of the bird and two fireworks are attached to the hair prong.


I made a paper body for the bird, and started applying 'feathers.'


And now it's done!

very beautiful , can be used as headflower Cheesy

Beautiful! Very much an attention getter. Smiley

Wow! What lovely work.

Thank you! Cheesy <3

I'm impressed by the work that went into it and a bit jealous of people with straight hair who can wear such an attractive hear piece.

I can't think of any reason why having curly hair would prevent you from wearing kanzashi.  You just need to pick an accessory that fits the way your hair is styled.

I'm fascinated with your process. Beautiful work!  Wink

Thanks for the step-by-step show and tell :-)

I've always been fascinated by how such beautiful flowers were made. Lovely work

Thank you Cheesy I think sharing the process is important. I might make more involved directions later on.

That's just amazing. Smiley I am really interested in silver clay. I'm hoping to get into it eventually.

I started this one around Christmas, but didn't finish it until after the new year. Finally getting around to posting it now. Smiley

Lots of progress shots!


Here's a shot of my color box.

Prepared base pieces.


First flower.



Second Flower.

I struggled a lot with this one; the colors were bleeding a little and the petals look messy.

Third Flower.



Fourth Flower.



Attaching the flowers to the comb.


Adding gold springy sprigs then centers.



Dyeing some ribbons green for a darker shade of leaf.



The ribbons are drying; they get put into a dye set, then dried again, ironed, and finally starched before being cut into squares.

Ta dah! All done.


Details.
