Bell Flower Hair Comb Bridal Headpiece

I thought I could get back to write a new post right after "Morning Glory Hair Comb.." post. But there were always things to do. So it was delayed for longer time.

September is the month of bell flower or kikyou in kanzashi calendar. Last month, I managed to make two bell flower themed bridal kanzashi. Therefore, I had three bell flower themed on my Etsy shop.

The first one is a triple bell flower in soft colors: lavender, mint blue and soft lilac. I made these flowers out of vintage kimono I had got from various resources. As for the leaves, I used hand-dyed light weight silk from Nuno Felting Silk.

The second bouquet is slightly larger with smaller flowers. I used Indonesian woven silk and vintage kimono lining for the flowers and habutai silk for the leaves.

The later one is made of batik cotton. I like the combination of cream and peach colors.

Unlike the two above, this is a hair stick or hair prong. This peach cream colored bell flower bouquet is nice to adorn a hair bun.
