I tried out making the Kanzashi flower using the ribbons. It’s not as easy as I thought. So the first few I made were definitely not perfect … and I’m not sure or have enough confident that the rest that I’ll be making will turn out better … but I shall try … going to stay on believing that “practice makes perfect” … hehee 🙂
My sisters love these Kanzashi flower brooch though … as I do too! They appear more elegant that the other simple flower brooches that I’ve made. I love the learning journey and effort … and my husband has been fully supportive of this hobby … he is always the first one to give encouraging praise at my effort.
The one pictured below was the first Kanzashi Dual Coloured I’ve made. I have an order to fulfill for this one … insya’Allah will do so by end of next week. I’ve already told the sister that ordered that it won’t be perfect but if she still wants it, I will do so. She said she don’t mind and so will make one for her soon.
Yesterday night, I ventured to make another dual coloured Kanzashi brooch …. Green and Orange, my husband love it, saying that the colours are very striking and lovely 🙂
Then, using the same colours, I made another but this time, I alternate the colours instead. Two of these brooches now belongs to my 3rd sister. She had requested for them and with the completion of the orders, I was able to give to her early this morning.
I’m happy doing these hobby of mine … the process is a learning journey and calming to the mind and the pleasure I derived upon seeing the complete works are fulfilling, and it becomes much more when I see them being worn by other people. Tremendous pleasure indeed! Alhamdulillah 🙂
