Ayame Kanzashi by SincerelyLove Ayame Kanzashi by SincerelyLove
A classical motif worn by maiko in the month of May, the ayame (iris) traditionally represents victory and protection from evil. Here, its beauty is captured in three multilayered lavender and violet petals and pale green leaves, bordered on all sides with shining, eye-catching mizuhiki cords. A gold center and three deep purple gems complete the image. This kanzashi measures approximately 3.5" x 3.75" and is mounted on an alligator clip for easy wear.

Nothing wrong with jeans and a hoodie! :D Personally, I like to dress up casual clothes with cute accessories for easy style. :P

Certainly - I'd think with a headband, or a pair of bobby pins. :aww: I don't have any pictures for you unfortunately, but I hope people don't feel restricted by any means to only formal occasions! :heart:

I decided to look at your entire gallery, and figure out which one I liked best. It ended up being a tie between this one, and the Botan Kanzashi. I have a certain weakness towards all things Japanese, however that's not the main reason for my appreciation of your handy-work. What you create is beautiful, and I can tell all the love and craftsmanship that goes into every single piece you create. I like both your Botan and Ayame for different reasons. In this piece I enjoy the overall symmetry of the work, and yet at the same time playing with different shapes. I also have a weakness towards shiny things (i.e. the mizuhiki accents in this case). One of the reasons I like the botan is for its depth in which the layering gives it. Also the leaves in that piece are some of the nicest ones you've done. Though I have silly reasons for not liking one over the other. I'm prejudice against the color pink, but the Botan is still a wonderful piece. And for some reason that I cannot place, I both like and dislike the main body of the ayame. I commented on Ayame instead of the Botan, because it had less comments. Anyways I hope you continue making such lovely pieces of work.

Wow, I'm impressed that you put so much thought into this! :D Thank you very much for your kind words, I'm glad that my Botan and Ayame pieces are getting some more love! I am looking into some new styles for peony and iris flowers that I hope you'll like as well, please look out for those! :floating:

No problema. When I really like something, I'm not afraid to express it. Even if it takes a lot of thinking time to help me clearly state what I wish to express. And I will be on the look out for them, I promise.
