Inspired by Cherry Blossoms
















As artists, we look towards nature, lost memories or find one piece that can inspire new works of art. This past weekend, I was inspired by this beautiful 8x10 photograph of Cherry Blossoms called Cherry Cream photographed by Lauriann Wakefield. Her shop is brilliant and I could envision many of her brightly whimsy photos, all clustered together to make a wall of delight. From her photo, blessed with pale blushes and soft petals, I created two pieces that have a soft feminine touch.

~ NEW ARRIVAL: A sweet necklace with a bold sweet blush pink in a gold filigree with a touch of pearl, this Cherry Blossom Allure necklace reminds me of the ornate lines of Mucha, matched with soft Cherry Blossom petals.

~ NEW ARRIVAL: A sweet kiss of strawberry swirls matched with modern romance from silhouettes of roses, these Strawberry Kiss earrings are made with blown glass beads, vintage floral bead caps and sterling silver rose connectors on sterling silver lever backs.
