Geisha Finds on Etsy

Can't quite remember where I saw a photograph of two beautiful geisha girls and it made me wonder if I would find  anything on Etsy relating to Geisha. Just typing in the word Geisha netted me a mere 6,049 items!!! I was not disappointed in my finds, in fact far from it; I discovered beautiful mosaics, photography, shoes, dolls and much more. I have picked a few from my search and hope you like them as much as I do. I can browse through the remaining 6,045!!!  another day.


The first to catch my eye was this Original Beautiful Japanese Geisha Doll. Her beautifully ornate Kimono costume is made from brocade kimono fabric with gold/metallic thread. She is wearing a beautiful complete metallic hair decoration with original wraps holding her hair in place, and is holding the Emperors samurai helmet in one hand and tassles in the other. Exquisitely decorated throughout, this is a high quality collectors piece. http://www.etsy.com/people/Yesteryearessentials
 
Next came these pom pom platform Slippers from http://www.etsy.com/people/crownofthorns 

A stunning 18"x24" glass mosaic picture ready to hang. It is the second piece in my series of "Women of Fantasy" . This Geisha named Sakura translates to "Cherry Blossom". All glass is handcut with reflective backing to bring out the colors. Her fans and kimono are lined with glass beads. This piece is classy and very subtle, but speaks volumes and will look awesome on your wall. http://www.etsy.com/people/RedCanyonGlass


 
Fabulous photograph of traditional dress and shoes from http://www.etsy.com/people/January10th



And finally  from http://www.etsy.com/people/mysweetseptember  This lovely necklace with a gorgeous print entitled "Midoriki from the Wakamatsuya Establishment," from the series "Contest of Beauties in the Pleasure District" 1795-1796. The reverse side is a piece of Japanese washi paper. The pendant measures 1 inch by 1 1/2 inches. A sterling silver jump ring is soldered to the top.

I'm enthralled with many different cultures and Japanese is definitely one of them! :)

I swear, I think I'm meant to travel and see the world because different cultures excite me!

Great finds Chrissie and thanks for sharing ^.^
