Bright Orange Multi Colored Kanzashi
Honestly she came out pretty well. I love the bright colors and the layered tiers on the shidare. Its just different enough.
The shidare is wired on a new 18g gold colored copper wire I found as a random item in a hobby store. It was on the wrong rack, all by itself, but it had a barcode. I didn't care how much it cost. LOL.
Right now I am working a project in crewel embroidery, a second pillowcase to a set I started back in June. Its been a long half a year of projects, and I am glad to be getting back to something for myself. I love to practice crewel, in hopes I will eventually get good enough to branch into Japanese silk embroidery and other flat silk embroidery. I am a huge fan of the Japanese Embroidery Center (JEC.com) in Atlanta, GA. I even just received a book of traditional patters from one of my relatives purchased in the JEC store. So excited!
