Featuring a magnificent double-layered kiku (chrysanthemum) flower, this eye-catching kanzashi is made of a bright floral print paired with a deep jewel green. Elegant, mysterious, and set with a glittering silver gem, 'Midsummer Night's Dream' measures approximately 2.25" in diameter and is mounted on an alligator clip for easy wear.
Thank you for your kind words! All my kanzashi are functional hair accessories, designed after the elaborate headdresses worn by Japanese geisha and maiko. Although you may not see them in the pictures, they are all mounted on hardware such as alligator clips, barrettes, pins, etc. that can be worn in the hair. The petals are 100% hand made from fabric, just as traditional kanzashi is. It is most certainly a learned craft, and requires many many hours of painstaking practice and experience to perfect! Hope that answers your questions~
Thank you! I have never seen a geisha and I am unfamiliar in the Japanese culture and arts but that part of it looks beautiful! Asian culture has many ways to emphasize a woman's femininity and beauty!
