A commission for a Halloween-themed kanzashi piece! With the holiday just around the corner I thought it'd be perfect to post this. It was ordered to incorporate the traditional black and orange color scheme, as well as a lotus flower, ribbons, and a jack-o-lantern. The centerpiece, a triple-layered hasu (lotus), is set with a black pearl, and the miniature jack-o-lantern is entirely hand-sculpted out of clay. The matching monarch butterfly pin was included as an extra gift to my wonderful customer.
People do seem interested, I may have to look into it! I would certainly love to make a Christmas-themed kanzashi, although I'm not sure if people would prefer it to more traditionally Japanese pieces.
