Springtime Cherry Blossom New Make, Stunning Pictures and Cocktails

Handmade Sakura Earrings

My latest make on my Etsy shop are these cherry blossom earrings.

You can find the listing here

Hanami is an ancient Japanese tradition in where people view the cherry blossoms coming into bloom.

These cherry blossoms are based on the Kawaizuzakura variety that bloom in Tokyo.

The flowers are made in three layers to imitate the texture of petals, the first layer is a pale pastel pink with white polka dots, the second layer is a more vibrant bright pink with white stamens and the third layer is a gold gem in the centre.

A lovely piece that would look perfect with flowery springtime dresses or blouses.

Here are a few of my favourite beautiful cherry blossom pictures.
