  • And another collaboration



    These Japanese style hairsticks are made by me then tarted up to look good by Mo. The long one (9") is oak with masks of tragedy and comedy on a silver chain and the shorter one (7") is walnut with copies of roman coins. The adornnments and chains are all silver plate. Mo would rather use stirling silver but it would put the price through the roof. Need to make a load more ready for the Marlborough market next Sunday as all the ones I had made are in a shop.

    P>S> These are the ones I made previously

      Very beautiful, I love seeing traditional adornments like hair sticks coming back and being used. harder to put your hair up with but more beautiful than a hairband.

      You and Mo do good work.

        Thank you both. Acquired some more adornments and silver plated findings to make them more viable. Also Pete is going to make some pairs plain and adorned which I hope will go down well too.

          Have you thought of attaching Wire-form or metal crafted Kanji to the end?

          I am sure those would go down very well with the japano-phile crowd,

            Kanji are so precise you'd have to be very careful to make sure you aren't saying something rude or silly. I can see that they could be applicable though. Thanks for the idea.

              Hey Bodrighy

              I know basic kanji and Kata/Hira Gana, up to JNPL level 4, so if you ever feel you want to do it, then I would be happy to glance at the Kanji.

              And you'd be surprised how impresice they can be, think about how different an H looks in say time new roman compared to say Arianti Gothic or something similar, and all the variations in hand writing.
              While Kanji was more calligraphic than hand written originally nowadays there is allot more hand written variation, allowing for some variation in Kanji formation.
