Toronto’s Amy Kwong of Smitten Kitten has adapted the traditional Japanese kanzashi hair piece (typically worn by geisha) into a brooch. Kwong learned the kanzashi technique from her mother and for the past three years has been handmaking these one-of-a-kind floral brooches from vintage silk scarves.
