Every woman knows how one singleThe accessory is able to change the whole image. Elegant, brooch, buckle or barrette, chosen by color and style will become a real highlight and will emphasize the taste of the mistress. Such a simple thing, like a hair rim, is able to turn an ordinary everyday hairstyle into a festive one. In this article we will offer several master classes on creating rims for hair, decorated with flowers in Kansas technique. Elegant handmade items, which are called silk origami, are more than 4 centuries old. It was then that the Japanese changed their style in hairstyles. The simple straight hair was replaced by intricate knots. All these bizarre structures of hair had to be fixed, and in the course went different pins, sticks and combs. Since the traditional Japanese costume was very closed and draped literally from neck to toe, the only available jewelry was the hair accessories. Scallops and hairpins became real works of art. They reflected many aspects of women's lives. They were an indicator of her position in society, to what class she belonged, whether she was married, whether she had children. Looking at the delightful accessories for hair decorated with tiny slices of silk, folded into intricate shapes, it was possible to determine with confidence the level of prosperity, the sense of proportion and taste of Japanese women. The word "kanzash" refers to the hairpins with which hairpieces were stitched, but over time, so any decorations from tapes or fabrics folded in a certain way began to be called.
Bezel with turquoise colors in Kansas technique
For those who think that turquoise is a shadeblue-green color, we want to say - you have never seen turquoise. This natural material is considered semiprecious, and jewelers make from it a variety of jewelry. In turquoise, unlike diamonds, there is age. The young mineral has tender milky blue hues, which eventually become more saturated with blue and further acquire a deep blue-green color. Therefore, in these master classes to create rims for hair with flowers of turquoise color, there will be several of its shades. Option 1 It will take:
- Satin ribbons of blue, blue and silver color and a width of 5 cm.
- A small piece of blue tape with a width of 2.5 cm.
- Candle or lighter.
- Hot glue and glue gun.
- Elements for decoration (beads, rhinestones or any other accessories for your choice).
Before embarking on the creation of flowers,which will decorate the bezel, you need to cut the ribbon into squares with a side of 5 cm. Petals. When working with satin ribbons, they will need to be melted over the fire. Therefore for convenience of work it is necessary to acquire tweezers. This is not necessary, but with its help it is easier to avoid accidental burns from the flame and compressing the blanks during the gluing process. Now we will work with blue and silver squares. Fold them diagonally, shiny side outward and carefully solder the fire of the candle corner, which is the vertex of the triangle. Once again we add these triangles and again we melt the tips over the fire so that they are glued together. Now put the blue workpiece on the silver billet and fold it again. We get blue inside and silveroutside. Look carefully at the photo. One of the corners needs to be cut off a little and melted again. Pay attention to the following photo. The line of holding by tweezers, serves as a line along which it is necessary to cut off the lower part and again to melt the workpiece over the flame of a candle or lighters. We got a double pointed petal blue-silver. For our purpose, 12 suchpetals and 10 pieces of silvery blue. We perform them similarly. Now we begin to glue flowers together. For these purposes, it is convenient to use an adhesive gun and a special silicone stick (if the sticks are not present, do not get upset - you can do without it). We glue two flowers from six petals each. One is silvery blue, the second is silvery blue. Take the silvery blue flower and betweenthe first tier of the petals is glued with one silvery blue (pictured left) and one silvery blue petal (pictured right). We take one more petal (again blue and blue) and glue to the corresponding petals of the second tier (see photo). They should be located between these petals. The third circle will be 1 petal silver blue, which must be glued between the petals of the second circle. On the opposite side, you need to displaypetals on the contrary. The base for the rim is ready. From above, glue a silvery blue flower, placing the petals in staggered order with respect to a silvery blue flower. In the center of the composition, we glue a beautiful rhinestone as the core of a flower. We attach the composition to the rim. From the inside to the rim and flowerglue a piece of ribbon with a width of 2.5 cm. It remains to wait until the glue finally dries, and you can decorate your hair with this original, elegant accessory. A little history of jewelry for hair Accessories for creating all sorts of hairstyles exist on earth from the beginning of civilization. It is generally accepted that they are exclusively feminine magic tricks. However, elegant kanzashi hairpins, in ancient times were worn not only by the fair sex. Such hairpins in the form of long and very thin stilettos not only reliably fixed the samurai's hair, but could also serve as a very formidable weapon - throwing knives. Of course, such deadly hair accessories were rare, and beautiful geisha decorated their hairstyles with completely harmless hairpins with exquisite silk flowers. Option 2 It will take:
- Satin ribbon blue and dark turquoise. The width of the tape is 5 cm.
- Tape of satin blue. Belt width 2.5 cm.
- Candle or lighter.
- Hot glue and gun.
- Elements for decorating the core of a flower (rhinestones, half-beads, etc.).
As in the previous master class, beforebegin to create a flower, cut the ribbon into squares. The width of the side is determined by the width of the ribbon itself. We need a tape with a width of 5 cm: 8 dark turquoise, 14 blue squares. From the tape width of 2.5 cm you need 8 blue boxes. First, take one square with a side of 5 cm and fold them diagonally with a shiny side outwards. Now take the blue triangle and wrap it in turquoise half (see photo). It turns out that the top of the turquoise triangle from both sides touch the side corners of the blue triangle. Now add the resulting two-color triangle in half. One side turns turquoise, and one blue. Again, add up so that the blue side is outward, and turquoise internal. The photo shows the line on which it is necessary to cut the workpiece. We sealed the tip of the petal over the flame. We make 8 such lobes. By analogy we create 6 more simply blue sharp petals from a tape in width of 5 sm and 8 small blue sharp petals. From small petals we glue one flower. From the double blue turquoise petals we glue another flower. The remaining 6 blue petals are glued together three together. Now we begin to decorate our bezel. First we glue a large flower with two-colored lobes. Arrange it on the rim so that its line passes through the middle of the flower in the space between the petals. Then, to the rim and two petals located on both sides of the rim, we glue three connected blue blanks from two opposite sides. Now it remains only to paste a small flower on top. Position it so that the smaller petals are in the grooves of the larger petals. From the inside to the rim and flower you canpaste a small piece of thin tape from the satin. Advice! When choosing scissors, pay special attention to their sharpness. The better they are sharpened, the less the edges of the squares will swell. Also as a cutting tool you can use a soldering iron or a burner for wood. They greatly simplify the process, because they serve simultaneously for cutting parts, and for refining the edges. If you decide to use a soldering iron, you will also need a metal ruler along with a special working surface, for example, a ceramic tile or a piece of glass. Option 3 The following product is suitable for baby as aadditions to the festive costume. Kansashe petals, combined in flowers, will be an excellent option for the crown and the magic wand of the little fairy. It will take:
- Bezel and wand (you can use chopsticks for Japanese food).
- Satin tape milky blue light color is 5 cm wide.
- Silver ribbon of brocade 4 cm wide.
- Satin ribbon of blue and silvery colors 1 cm wide.
- The tape of the same shades is 0.5 cm wide.
- Hot glue and gun to it.
- Candle or lighter. It is better to use a soldering iron.
- Elements for decor (crystals, beads, beads, asterisks, etc.).
As usual, the work begins with slicingsquares. We cut them in accordance with the width of the tape, which means that we get 4x4 cm silverware and 5x5 cm milky blue. Fold the blue square diagonally with the shining side outward. It turns the triangle bottom down. We put it together again. edges should be even. Similarly, we come with a silver square. Since the side of it is smaller, the workpiece will also be smaller. It will serve as an internal part of the acute Kansashe petal. We put together the two blanks. Try to make the vertices of the triangles on the same line (silvery just below the blue). Fold in half. We got the outside of the blue. Pay attention to the photo. The tip of a right-angled triangle, for which the petals are held by tweezers, must be cut off and melted. In total we make 34 such sharp petals forCrown and 5 for a magic wand. Now we take up the rim. The upper part of it is pasted with a blue thin ribbon. Choose a rim and a ribbon of the same width. The coincidence of the edge of the tape with the edge of the hoop will make the article more accurate. It was the turn of the crown. In the center of the rim we glue two petals. One is directed to the left and one to the right. Now we paste 2 more petals between them. Now glue 1 petal between this pair. And two petals on both sides as shown in the photo. Now it is necessary to glue two lobes (one is slightly higher than the other) to the right and left of the central one. Between them we glue one more. It is necessary to glue not only the tips of the blanks, but also to try to fix the petals from the sides. From the four petals create a side flower. On the main flower, add two more petals on each side (see photo). To the side flap we glue one more from above and two below from the side. A small flower is mirrored with anotherside of the central structure. We decorate the hearts with rhinestones. We begin to create a magic wand by gluing a wooden stick with a thin ribbon of blue color. We join the five petals together in a flower. We also decorate the core with a rhinestone. From the wide blue ribbon we cut out a circle. We melt the edges with fire. Try not to hold the tape above the flame for too long, this will make the circle wavy. On the outer shining side of the circle we glue several loops of a very thin blue ribbon approximately 2 cm in length. We make a snowflake from a thin silver ribbon and paste it over the hinges. Now we need to glue a circle with a flower and attach the entire structure to a stick wrapped in ribbon. On the back of the magic wand you need to glue another circle of satin blue ribbon. Decoration for a small snow fairy is ready.
