I finally finished the second set of kanzashi that I was working on! I was making this set for my wonderful photographer, who is always up for a spur of the moment shoot and has the amazing ability to make me look fantastic.
This set is ayame, or iris flowers. They are traditionally worn in the month of May, and are an alternative to the more commonly seen wisteria kanzashi. I wanted to make something for her that was unusual without being bizarre, and when she requested purples, this was the first thing that struck me. I think they turned out rather well!
