The strangest thing happened to me - one of my journal entries got inexplicably deleted, and I have no idea why or how. Hm... Well, without any further ado:
Sincerely Love kanzashi will be sold this year at FANIME CON 2014!!!
It has just been CONFIRMED - Sincerely Love kanzashi will be sold in the Artist Alley of FANIME CON 2014
, running May 23-26, 2014 in San Jose, CA!!!
If you are in the area and/or will be attending Fanime this year, please do stop by, say hello and take a look at our kanzashi products in person!
As always, many kanzashi pieces will make their debut at the convention, meaning the most popular ones will be sold before they even have the chance to be posted online.
Get to them early and save on some shipping fees too!
My sincere apologies that I have not posted any journal entries in quite some time, and also have not uploaded many new kanzashi. In addition, thank you to everyone who was waiting patiently for custom orders! It was incredibly busy here, but brand new kanzashi will be posted soon, and custom orders will all be processed and shipped.
I look forward to an amazing new year ahead! Please continue to support me, you are all greatly appreciated from the bottom of my heart!
Background of Kanzashi
Tsumami kanzashi, or simply kanzashi
as it is commonly known, refers to the traditional Japanese hair ornaments commonly worn by geisha and maiko, made by folding fabric into elaborate styles and shapes. Most commonly seen as flowers (花簪 hana kanzashi
), tsumami kanzashi can be made into extravagant headdresses consisting of hundreds of individually hand-folded petals.
Nowadays, the traditional art of kanzashi can be remade into striking modern styles. Fabric flowers are still made using traditional folding and crafting techniques, but with a modern edge that can be incorporated into any style and look. Whether accompanying a formal dress or casual everyday outfit, kanzashi can add a touch of a traditional Japanese art to modern fashion.
Custom commissions are currently CLOSED! Please take a look at my store
for ready-to-ship items that can be bought at any time, and, if you can, definitely check us out at FANIME 2014 over Veteran's Day Weekend in San Jose, CA!! Sincerely Love kanzashi will be sold in the Artist Alley at the convention, and many new products will be making their debut there before being posted online!
I apologize that I will not be able to accommodate any custom orders while I am preparing for the convention. Orders that have been placed prior to this announcement will still be processed and finished. If you are interested in placing a custom order in the future, please message me for when I will next be able to take your order!
Thank you very much!
