I've been working on new kanzashi projects each weekend. Smiley  This weekend's project is a set of three orchid hair pins.

Ta-daaah. Cheesy

This is the first one I made. I tried to put a lighter color on the interior of the large petals but the color difference wasn't great enough and it doesn't really stand out.

This is the second one I made. I was more satisfied with the color variation on this one.

This is the last one I made. It has a little more detail with a sprig of leaves and some silver cloth wrapped wire loops. I cleaned the thread up on the bottom left side of the bottom petal. It was actually a bit of excess glue.

Another shot of the last orchid.  I had to make a last minute repair with hot glue - you can see some of the strands in the picture on the leaves. I removed those last bits of course.

And one last picture of all three!

They're lovely.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Thank you! Cheesy They were a lot of fun to make. I'm still not sure what exactly I want to do with them. I'm sure they'll end up as a gift. My hair is a little too short for these hair pins, I think.
