Happy Monday, dear readers. It’s now September, which means that it’s crunch time. The Etsy Made in Canada Market is on the 24th and 25th at the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market. I’m super excited to have been selected for this show, so I’ve been busting rump to get ready for it. I’m sure you’ve all noticed, haha.
My last few posts have been larger kanzashi pieces, so today I wanted to rotate back to smaller pieces. First, I made a couple of clematis alligator clips. Clematis are traditionally worn by maiko during the month of June, and come in all sorts of colors and shapes.
The first two clematis I made were aqua blue and white. I’ve always found the pointed petals easier to do (although I’ve heard many people find the round petals easier) so these were a breeze to make. I didn’t even have to dye any new ribbon since I still have some pale aqua leftover from older projects.
