The Cherry Blossom collection is one that is very close to my heart. When I was born, my parents planted a cherry blossom tree next to our house. Today, that tree has grown taller than the house, with its joyful blooms serving as a reminder of our loving family. Continuing the tradition, we planted one next to our house when my daughter was born. Each year I journey to Washington, DC or to the botanical gardens to see these glorious trees in bloom. Our Cherry Blossom collection permanently captures the fleeting beauty of the blossoming cherry trees or “sakura” which have been venerated in Japan for hundreds of years. Since “sakura” bloom for only a short time each year, they serve as a powerful visual reminder of the beautiful and ephemeral nature of life. Our blossoms and twigs were hand modeled in wax, cast in pewter, then gold-plated and antiqued to highlight the fine details. Each bloom is carefully hand painted in our NYC studio. Cultured pearls and elegant gold plated chains enhance this cheerful collection. This entire collection is Made in the USA.
