I made "Black Leaves" out of black synthetic satin with fabric paint to create this gothic image of leaves. Whether for a special occasion or for everyday wear, this darling trio is sure to catch attention.

Momiji, or maple leaves, are a prominent theme in the fall, but these unique leaves can be worn any time of year.

With the smooth shiny fabric , you can get a feel of origami pattern in your hair-do. Also, each leaf is affixed individually by a wire, so they may be gently posed.Each leaf is adorned with a gold colored filigree, and surrounded by captivating antique gold stamens.

I used tsumami kanzashi techniques where each petal is made one-at-a-time, hand folded and hand-set to this timeless design.


Please keep in mind that color may differ as color does not display the same on different computer monitors.

As always, I'm accepting custom order kanzashi. Like the style, but not the colors? No problem! Just send me a message (through "contact the shop owner"). :)
If you're in a hurry for an all new, custom hairpin, please see my "shop announcements" ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/hanatsukuri )or "store policies" for scheduling details; I accept custom orders as time allows.

Thank you for looking!

Frequently asked questions about hanatsukuri

Your handmade tsumami zaiku (kanzashi, or hair pin) will be shipped to you wrapped in tissue paper in an organza bag. Your shipping box doubles as a gift box. It is a sturdy, but pretty box with a lid. The color and design of the box varies by size.

Generally the box is wrapped in bubble wrap for extra security. If you require double boxing (recommended for some countries, such as Italy and France), please upgrade to EMS and inquire about insurance.
Your hair pin should be stored in a dry place and in low humidity. Where possible, keep your kanzashi with some silicon gel bags or other de-humidifying products. Also, because the hair pins are silk, if you have cedar blocks, you may store them in your hair pin box.

Do not get your hair pin wet. Should it get a little wet, you can reshape the petals while still damp. Gently, and with clean hands or not-very-sharp tweezers, shape the silk into its shape.
I welcome custom orders! However, my custom order schedule may be quite busy at times, and may not allow for rushed orders. Please give me pleanty of time to design and create your custom hair pin. Otherwise rushed orders (21 days or less) are subject to a surcharge for large or detailed orders.
For custom orders over $50.00 USD, I do require a 50% down-payment. This is nonrefundable. HOWEVER, I will do my best to please! Thank you!

I can remake your custom order once without any kind of surcharge, and add on or "edit" orders until you are satisfied. Please note this will take time-- sometimes as much as a month extra for sending samples and matching dress colors. If you request really special orders, your cooperation through etsy conversations is necessary. This is because I cannot proceed without your written approval. :)
If you would like to send an order to a friend, please make a note when you purchase. I will ship to wherever you like-- as long as the post office goes there. :)
If I ever overcharge your shipping by more than $3 (the cost of the gift box), I will refund you the difference. Please do not hesitate to purchase upgraded shipping either-- I will definitely refund you if it actually costs less than anticipated! In the event of undercharging for shipping please pay me back the difference; I am only an artisan, not a major company.
The first option for shipping is always for first class mail. This does not come with insurance. There will be additional charge maintained by Kuro Neko or Japan Post for insuring packages.

Shipping upgrades are available from the shopping cart. I'm researching the best options from Japan.
