Traditional Autumn Maple (Kaede) Maiko Kanzashi by japanesesilkflowers Traditional Autumn Maple (Kaede) Maiko Kanzashi by japanesesilkflowers
www.etsy.com/listing/159783211…
This striking and colorful kanzashi is composed of twenty silk hand-dyed momiji (autumn maple) leaves. Each flower has a gold mizuhiki at its center. Dangling gracefully below are five rows of 95 leaf petals on the shidare (falls). There are a total of 235 individual hand-dyed maple leaf components in this arrangement! It is mounted on a 10 cm (4") silver-plated, two-pronged hairpin. This kanzashi is typical of those worn by maiko during the fall season and would complement any traditional kimono.
Entire length of kanzashi : 21 cm (8 inches).
Width of bouquet: 9 cm (3.5 inches)

Thank you--this is one of our most favorite kanzashi.  It took many hours to create (lots and lots of petals were hand-dyed and then hand-painted) but well worth the effort!  The lovely lady who purchased it was extremely happy :)

Thank you!  We hand-dyed the maple leaves in shades of yellow and goldenrod, then hand-painted the tips of some of them in red and green.  Having spent so much time on these colors, we greatly appreciate your nice compliments!
