Here are some new finished maiko calendar kanzashi hairpins Smiley Traditional motifs for seasons/holidays.

They are normally larger, but I made these smaller so they are easier to wear.



This one is new. I like making dragon flies, but I don't do them as often as butterflies.



This one is based on a Gion festival design, which actually change a little every year.



I've done this design before, but they always turn out a little different.



I originally made this one as a christmas ornament, but it's been repurposed into a hairpin. Smiley

Beautiful job! And thank you for your earlier answer to me about the rice glue. I appreciate that you've made the sizes for these more manageable. Not many regular ladies wear hairstyles large enough or vertical enough to accommodate most traditionally sized/shaped kanzashi. It's why a lot of mine are in curio cases. Smiley

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
