** About Me **

I'm a 29-year old dancer in Minneapolis who has a wonderful time sharing her love of kanzashi with the fabulous people around the world. :)

Kanzashi are traditional Japanese hair flowers made out of carefully folded pieces of fabric, and are most famous for being worn by Maiko (young geisha). With only 5 nationally recognized kanzashi artisans left in Japan, I am happy to learn such a lovely and intricate art form to share with fellow art lovers.

I am involved in a traditional Japanese Dance group here in Minneapolis, so I know how important durability is when working with the flowers. My goal is to make beautiful kanzashi affordable for everyone. If you have something in mind that you'd like for your kimono, cosplay costume, wedding, or everyday outfit, feel free to let me know!…
