Unique handmade jewellery and accessories

One of our specialities is tsumami* kanzashi (hair ornaments). Each petal is cut and folded by hand, making every flower one-of-a-kind! Most are made of hand-dyed habotai silk.

*tsumami: meaning 'pinch', a traditional Japanese craft which makes flowers out of squares of fabric, similar to origami

If you have a specific color or style you'd like, custom orders are welcome! You can also specify whether you prefer a clip, comb, headband or hair prong, or even if you'd like a pin finding to wear your kanzashi as a brooch! Petal, leaf, metal or bead dangles can be added to almost any design for an extra fee. Please note that if you have a very specific design in mind, a sketch or detailed description is helpful as modifying kanzashi after they're made is very difficult.

SHIPPING NOTE: As most of these pieces are made custom just for you, please allow for 1-2 weeks before shipping.

Large/fancy kanzashi designs (click photos to enlarge):

K53: Pinwheel Rose, a new design! Two or three colours spiral around like a pinwheel. You can choose your own colours; I usually make these in iridescent taffeta or dupioni, but you can choose a different fabric if you like. Available on a brooch pin, plastic hair comb, headband, metal hairstick, or sturdy alligator clip.

You can also accent the flower with feathers and/or a vintage rhinestone finding for the centre, as shown. Please note that as the rhinestone findings are vintage, each is different and unique.

$40 for flower alone, with standard goldtone filigree & pearl centre

$47 for flower with feathers and/or rhinestone finding
