I made this range of Steampunk-inspired kanzashi as I go to a lot of steampunk events in kimono and wanted something to wear that was both Steampunk and asian-inspired. Plus I like to wear kanzashi at all times! 😉 This hair accessory would be perfect for your steampunk wedding!
This kanzashi is made from habotai silk and polysilk. It also uses copper wire and salvaged/upcycled jewelry including old gold coloured chains.
The rough dimensions for this piece are about 5.5 inches x 3.5 inches at its widest and highest points. The large flower is 3inches in diameter and the smaller flowers are roughly 1.5 -2 inches diameter. The chains hang about 2.5 inches below the bottom of the flower. This is a real statement piece!
There are antique bronze coloured bead caps with a pearl coloured bead in the centre of each flower.
This piece is backed with both a crocodile hair clip and a brooch pin finding for maximum versatility.
Here is a breakdown of the fabrics in order of quantity used:
Deep purple silk
Vibrant purple silk
This flower is ready to ship and will dispatch within 2 working days
Please bear in mind that the colours you see on your screen may not exactly match the appearance of the kanzashi ‘in the flesh’, though I have tried to show them as accurately as possible!

Kanzashi are Japanese hair ornaments. Hana kanzashi means ‘flower kanzashi’ and simply refers to the flower shape of the hair accessories. Tsumami kanzashi means kanzashi that are made by pinching silk to form petals and is the Japanese traditional craft which inspires my own kanzashi.
