The Valley at Dawn : Mekik Oyası

I heard the 1st May today is called "Lily of the Valley Day" in France.
Seeing the flowers blooming here and there enjoyably these days, I made a muguet (lily of the valley in French) kanzashi.

* The Valley at Dawn *
Anchor Mercer Crochet #100
Lizbeth #80
Tekno-rote 0.4mm
Floral peps, metal parts

The flowers and leaves are made with Mekik Oyası, and the thin arched braids are with tatting lace technique.
Parts dangle slowly with beads.


  1. That is beautiful, yes it is Lilly of the valley day in France , usually I post a picture of Lilly of the valley but I was in hospital for a check up and forgot about it, hopefully I will do it next week.

    1. Thank you for your comment.
      I'm sorry for the late reply. I have been in bed with a cold and asthma these some days.
      Today I visited your blog.
      How beautiful butterflies and hearts!
      And I'm so happy to hear you are healing well.
      I hope you get better soon.
