Kanzashi Update

I've been on a kanzashi-making streak as of late. Two are for the shop, the other two are for a regular client of mine.

In order: Maiko Momiji Kanzashi, Maiko Chrysanthemum Kanzashi, Pussy Willow Kanzashi (for my client) and Devil's Club Kanzashi (also for my client). The real leaf on the last measures about 6" wide, and is typically accompanied by a single cluster of red berries that form into sort of a spear-tip shape. The kanzashi itself is about 3.5" wide.
