Wisteria Inspired Bridal Hair Stick

Wisteria season is over but the creation of kanzashi doesn't have to follow what is in season, right?

I actually made these hair sticks last month (May). But I was too busy to post on my blog.

I'd checked hundreds of wisteria designs when planning to make these hair sticks. But most of them looked too glamourous. They're all gorgeous and fantastic. But I wanted to make a wisteria inspired hair stick which was simple and consequently wouldn't look showy.

As additional adornment, I added glass beads such as fire-polished glass beads trailing down each of the wisteria stalk.

As for fabrics, I chose vintage kimono and Indian saree silk. Lavender and white bridal wisteria hair sticks are made from vintage kimono both for the flower petals and the leaves. I used Indian saree silk for the turquoise and dusty blue wisteria.
