Wedding Kanzashi - Part two

Playing around with silk dupion is fun but I also got sent some purple lace as well from Bound by Obsession.

I have always wondered what kanzashi would look like made from lace and at first I was a little hesitant to cut up this lovely lace but I bit the bullet.

And now it is time to make the kanzashi.

The flower at the back is not a kanzashi but a rose that I made because it dawned on me that I may need some more substantial flowers in my bouquet.

What do you think?

I LOVE the idea of lace kanzashi! I think it needs something extra to break up the blue though, because right now it's kinda hard to see different parts of the flowers. Maybe a white pearl in the middle? Or white lace inside?

They are the unfinished article and I do plan to place an ivory pearl in the middle. It fits in with my pearl necklace and earrings I plan to wear.

I really have trouble capturing the colour of this lace as it is suppose to be purple but no matter what I do it looks blue.

Wow, the lace kanzashi turned out really well! Really lovely idea :)

Kitty Kanzashi said...

They turned out better then I first thought! They will look even better if I make them larger for the bouquet.

They look awesome!! I can't wait to see them finished and all together :) more supplies on the way!!

Yep I'll be including the lace roses into my bouquet and then use any remaining lace to decorate the back and handle of the bouquet.
