Phoenix Kanzashi by SincerelyLove Phoenix Kanzashi by SincerelyLove
One of the most popular and iconic motifs in Asian and Western culture, the phoenix symbolizes a combination of virtue, grace, femininity, and rebirth. Here, it has been recreated in tsumami kanzashi style, in vivid colors of fire. Its head, made of shining mizuhiki cords, sports a crown of red and gold, and the iconic long tail feathers are made into three shidare falls. The phoenix is mounted on an alligator clip for easy wear and measures approximately 3.5" x 10.5".

Thank you! :D Many others have pointed out the Ho-oh resemblance too, haha - unsurprising considering that 'houou' literally means 'phoenix' in Japanese. I don't quite recall exactly how long this piece took me, since I worked on it on and off... Suffice it to say that a lot of time was invested! :laughing:

I was going to say how this looks like Ho-oh, but then I saw a bunch of other people said the same thing xD
It's so pretty. I wish I had money for this! How did you learn to make these? From a book, or did someone teach you?

Hahaha it's certainly not a bad thing, and it's also not surprising that my Phoenix kanzashi resembles the phoenix Pokemon! :D I learned the basics from some tutorials online, but I mostly self-taught everything else from trial and error, haha. It was a long process, but definitely worth it! :aww:

Oh.... my goodness. That' is gorgeous! My only issues is the neck and head, but i think the 'feathers' more than make up for it :D

Merci beaucoup! :D If I may ask, what would you like to see improved on the neck and head? I'd love to hear any suggestions you might have to make it better! :meow:

HyenaNova Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well its really just personal opinion but the neck seems a bit too long, and same goes with the beak. Also it looks like the beak is a purple color and doesn't seem to match the overall color scheme really well. I think a metallic red beak would be gorgeous. Also the head is about the same thickness as the neck and would prefer to see it a little... rounder? But really doesn't need to be that much bigger.

SincerelyLove Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I can see where you're coming from; thank you for the constructive feedback! ^^ I'll make efforts to adjust the neck and beak length next time, and I can certainly change the purple color. The head is traditionally shaped like that for mizuhiki birds, but I'll also look into your suggestion for that. :D Thanks again~ :hug:
