Very beautiful!  I love the colors you've chosen.  Someday if you ever get the chance, I'd love to see what they look like in someone's hair.  Cheesy

I'll have to find a model. My cat and husband are terrible models and it's hard to get decent photos of myself (husband is also terrible at taking photo, ugh).

It looks like winter here in Saskatchewan, but It's still fall, right? Cheesy

I love maple leafs and I've been making a lot of maple leaf kanzashi lately. Thought it was a good time to share.

First up, some lapel pins


A pair of earrings


And a bunch of hairpins


As much as I love fall, I can't wait for spring. :x Fall here involves far too much snow!

Very sweet.

Thank you! Cheesy

It's snowing here in Saskatchewan, and even though it's fall still I have been working on some winter kanzashi.

First up is a simple plum blossom lapel pin:



Next, a pair of plum and pine hairpins:



A pair of plum earrings. I've decided not to keep making earrings, but it was an interesting experiment.



And a medium size hairpin with pine needles made from green and gold foil mizuhiki, pinecone made from glitter wire, and a plum blossom.



Reverse engineering how the pine needles are made was the most fun part, I think. Smiley I'd never tried it before.

I've been working super hard on new kanzashi, but have been kinda lazy about posting about my new pieces online. I've taken photos of most of my new pieces (missed a few, ugh) but haven't started editing and putting together posts until now. I thought I would start with my catch-up posts with some October kanzashi since it's finally fall.

Here's a simple lapel pin:


A pair of hairpins:


And a medium sized chrysanthemum hairpin:


I also made this chrysanthemum + maple + plum blossom medium size hairpin for one of my friends:


It's a bridal shower gift; she's getting married next month! Smiley She loves it, so I'm happy with the results.

I also like the plum blossom examples the best out of the assortment you shared; very impressive!

How elegant!

They are all so pretty!

Thank you! Cheesy

Just finished up this new set of kanzashi Cheesy I consider this one to run more along my personal aesthetic. It's very non-traditional compared to my other kanzashi work.

This is the big piece. The large piece is made from glitter wire. The death head moth is my own design cut from black glitter card stock with a layer of cellophane and paradise shine swarovski crystal details.











I did these matching single pins









And this medium sized piece to round out the set

Beautiful! Love how Japanese crafts can be all about minimalism with color and shape. Andy our lighting is soft and subtle too! Did you make your own lightbox/photography setup?

I just take my photos in the window and use a sheet of plain computer paper as a backdrop.

They are gorgeous!
So stylish and pretty.
And that first picture is awesome.

Thanks! Cheesy

They're all very pretty, but I think the plum blossoms are my favorite!

Me too!

Finished up some new kanzashi Cheesy I have a convention coming up in September and I'm trying to get lots of new pins done for it.
First up, Cherry Blossoms:









And a few plum blossoms:






The plum trio is my new favorite.
