Blooming in mid-Spring, the shidarezakura (weeping cherry) is a sight to behold, with long, trailing boughs of pink blossoms that sway gently in the breeze. Evoking the elegance of these iconic flowers, this kanzashi piece features blushing pink and white sakura blossoms, with light green leaves and sparkling organza. Trailing off are two strands of unique shidare falls, each one full of flowers that sway freely like the branches in the wind. Finally, the entire piece is accented with shining green and pink mizuhiki cords, glittering pink gemstones, and two softly tinkling bells. Mounted on a French comb for easy wear, this piece measures approximately 6" x 10".
Yes, they are alternate views of the same kanzashi piece! On dA, I ordinarily post only one picture for each kanzashi, but in this case I just couldn't decide which to pick. The hanging shidare falls are rather flexible, so they can swing freely when worn in the hair (like real weeping sakura branches!), so that might make the two pictures look slightly different.
