I've had the pleasure to get to know mlle a., first via her comments on Kokochi, then through a shared love for our furry family members, then by following her flickr stream that showcases her many beautiful handmade hair pins and sashes that are gorgeous, and oftentimes very Japanese. I love her style sense.
A while ago, I assisted her in ordering some special kanzashi pins from Japan. I was more than happy to help with her artwork that I so admire. She used the kanzashi in this nice bridal piece. In return, I received the cutest matching pin and hairpin. I've been using them with delight, and have been meaning to showcase her here. She has an Etsy shop too so you can order her work. Her presentation/wrapping of the items is beautiful too, so I highly recommend for gifts. Thank you, mlle a.!
