:party: Sincerely Love kanzashi will be sold this coming year at SACANIME WINTER 2016!!! :squee:

Come out to Sacramento, CA during New Year's weekend (January 1-3) to save shipping fees and see our latest kanzashi pieces in person! As always, newly-made kanzashi will be debuted at the convention, so the most popular pieces will be sold before I even have the chance to post them online. Come find our table at Artist Alley H09!!

That's all for now! Stay warm this winter, and I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday season!!

:rose: 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.

:rose: Commissions Info

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 SACANIME 2016 over New Year's weekend in Sacramento, 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. Commissions that have been accepted prior to this announcement will still be processed and finished. If you are interested in requesting a commission in the future, please message me for when I will next be able to take your order! :floating: Thank you very much!
