Tsumami Kanzashi Photo Gallery

All credit for this find goes to Immortal Geisha forum member shigatsuhana (thank you!), who first posted a link there to this short article and beautiful photo gallery of traditional folded-silk hair ornaments (tsumami kanzashi).

Among the little pieces of art, made by third-generation craftsman Tsuyoshi Ishida, you'll find everything from classical cranes and maple leaves to whimsical shrimp and watermelons.
