Designer's note: Delicate mother of pearl flowers with a pop of pastel pink sapphires, the transient Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Japan’s national flower, blossoms each spring representing new beginnings. Its sublime beauty mesmerized me especially while strolling through the 600 year old miniature bonsai cherry bloom trees in Kyoto’s Imperial Palace gardens, which is my inspiration for this collection.
To immortalize these blossoms, I used Pink and White Mother of Pearl as my canvas to create a collection for an Imperial Empress.
