Some wedding cakes or any beautiful decorative cakes inspired me, and the idea of Mizuhiki that is Japanese traditional, the art of knotting cord into a decorative element came up with this project.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
An inspiration of wedding cakes or any beautiful decorative cakes brings up me the idea of Mizuhiki that plays an important role in Japanese culture as a symbol of affection, warmth, and togetherness. This head jewelry is created by arranging Japanese traditional technique, Tsumami zaiku and Mizuhiki zaiku with Swarovski crystal.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was making Mizuhiki style into jewelry by using Swarovski crystal. Mizuhiki is an ancient Japanese art form that used a special cord. The cord is usually created from rice paper that is tightly wound, starched to give it stiffness, and then colored.
