1  Yuki/Snow Themed Kanzashi in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sparkling_gem1987 on: April 15, 2010 09:42:36 PM

My newest kanzashi creation ^.^ I've been getting back into making kanzashi's ever since I made the comb for the collegue I worked with. I recently bought some new fabric which I just had to try out! Here it another one I made with my latest fabric additions:

Purple Royalty Kanzashi

This one is my favourite since I absolutely adore purple XD

For those unfamiliar with the tsumami technique, these hair accessories are made by folding little square pieces of fabric. A tedious task but a very rewarding one when the kanzashi is finished Cheesy


I also have a account on DA (Kanzashi-Hime ,hence the watermark) so if you see it on there, be assured it's me ^__^

2  The things we do for our love of Kanzashi's... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sparkling_gem1987 on: November 05, 2009 08:47:52 PM
This kanzashi is going to be a gift to a lady at work who's always been friendly and helpful towards me, she really is one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure to met. Anyways, while I was wearing one of my kanzashi's as a hair accessory to work, she commented how lovely it was. As this is my last week at work, I decided to give her something as a thank you present for being so nice.

It's my first time making a kanzashi on a hair comb, it was an extremely messy job and I've managed to put glue on my favourite pair of jeans and give myself some blisters from the hot glue...really, the things we do for our love for crafting lol.

Update: I gave it to her and she loved it! I was so happy Cheesy

Here are the pics, do you think she'll like it?

3  Silk Japanese Kanzashi in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sparkling_gem1987 on: October 29, 2009 03:06:28 AM
It's been so long since I've last made Japanese Kanzashi's, they are so time consuming and I have so little free time lol. I'm really hoping to get around to making some proper full version ones to wear with my Furisode for a convention next year.

Anyways, I thought I'll share some piccies! Sorry for the rather bad pictures, lighting is terrible in my room. I'm also terribly out of practice so please be gentle XD Edited: Some better pictures Cheesy

I had a little play with it, and here is my recommendation:

There is a large resolution image of it here:


Keep in mind this is really rough but it will give you a basic idea of what I thought could be changed.

Hi Everyone!

This is a wedding cake topper I made for my brother's wedding. It's my first attempt at using polymer clay - I decided to make it because it would of cost $300 to buy one!! eeek! I was inspired to do the characters exactly like their wedding invitations, hopefully I can scan one to show you soon- it was just so cute!

Please let me know what you think Cheesy

7  Kimono Canvas - beware, alot of pics! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by sparkling_gem1987 on: October 01, 2005 09:48:49 AM
Wow, haven't posted in ages.

Well here's my newest work, it's an art project I did for my 2D painting assessment. Took me a whole 6.5 hours to sew the furisode...yeah, a looong time, but that's cause I had to figure out how to work the machine, this is pretty much my first time sewing lol. No pattern, just some basic idea of how to cut it using a doll making site.

You probably noticed the kanzashi used is the same one I posted earlier on ^^

Not exactly my best, but I was kinda...umm cramming it lol, I pretty much painted the whole thing, save the maiko, overnight and on the day it way due ^^; yes, silly me. Ok now let's see if I can get some pics on!

the whole thing

Close-up shots:

(modified) Since I seem to exceed bandwidth, I'm just going to post links instead:
