Although my background in designing jewelry for Faunauge often comes from the black scene, the most important part of my personality is theatre.

Individual pieces of jewellery for individual wearers. According to this motto, I would love to create your headpiece or whatever piece you adore to support your special occasion. I make new pieces for my customers by following my Faunauge style. Please use the contact form to send me your individual request. We will talk about basic styles and details in conversations and via email. Detailed formulations are essential to a successful production.

What is Kanzashi?
Roughly speaking, Kanzashi means the traditional headdress of Japanese geishas and maikos. Originally it consisted of a decorated bar of hair that was put into the hairstyle and was also used for defensive purposes. In the course of time, the shapes became more varied. The history of Kanzashi as such is said to have started 3000 years ago. In the Edo period (1603-1867) the form of the Edo Tsumami Kanzashi is said to have been created, as it is also known today. The application of folded flowers gives the Kanzashi the nickname Tsumami. The traditional hairstyles wear flower decorations adapted to the season. Each month is assigned a special type of flower. Plum blossoms stand for example for February, cherry blossoms (Japanese: sakura) for April and blue rainforests for May. Continue reading Japanese fabric flowers – Kanzashi
