The new order for the ribbon supplies is on the way … Can’t wait to play around with more colours 😉
I find it very therapeutic to do these ribbon brooches…. It calms my mind and seeing the end product brings a kind of satisfaction … kind of reaching a sense of self-achievement.
Anyway, a few days ago I tried my hand at making a new Kanzashi petals….
Here are the few I’ve made 😉
The petals above are slightly more rounded . Below is a comparison of the different Kanzashi petals I’ve done so far.
With the new supplies of ribbon coming in soon … I’ll be able to do more with different colours and patterns. I did try a rose bud once … had to try out twice before I got it right and I find that doing the rose pattern is more difficult and challenging. Definitely going to try my hand at it again … but not so soon cos I know that I need to be in good health to do the roses …. doing the roses tax my mind instead of calming me down hehehe … I suppose I found my own nemesis in the roses hihi 😛
These brooches are simply fantastic as a gift …. Recently, I gave two and placed them in a very nice box as a birthday gift for my RO. She loved them! 🙂
The brooches can both be worn as a pin for headscarf and also as an adornment while wearing a jacket or formal dress.
I simply love them 🙂
