Turning Japanese: Kimono Resin Flowers as Necklaces.

It's been awhile since I spoke of my own crafty endeavours on this blog, so let's have a look shall we?

This is going to be a combination of posts really, but to start with Finki started a monthly challenge, and the January theme was Turning Japanese.

So here's my take on it!

These are made from Kimono fabrics frozen in resin, and then shaped as sakuras.
Each sakura has 3 layers of different flowers and different fabrics
As different parts of the fabric is used, no two sakura will ever be the same.
Similar, possibly. Exactly the same? Not possible.

Closeups of the flowers.

The flowers hang on a necklace ring that is also nickle free, so for those with skin allergies, this will definitely suit you.
It's a modern take on the usual traditional looking kimono fabrics!

These particular necklaces have gone home to a new owner! *cheers*
But if you want more sakura necklaces (just with different sakuras), you can get them on my etsy store.
Mention the code TURNING JAPANESE and you'll even get free shipping on the necklaces! Offer ends 10th Feb tho, so be quick!

These necklaces were also featured on Empirebeads blog!

So what do you think? Like them, hate them?
