Kanzashi are hair ornaments used in traditional Japanese hairstyles. Kanzashi were first used in Japan during the Jōmon period. During that time, a single thin rod or stick was considered to have mystical powers which could ward off evil spirits so people would wear them in their hair. Talented artist Sakae makes wonderful Kanzashi in the form of flowers and butterflies and she doesn’t tell what technique she use for this. But once you see these extremely natural looking Kanzashi it won’t matter how she did it. Enjoy!
