Bonbon Blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!

beautiful picture from hereand this one here

In the Very Good News Projects Department: Guess what!? A coordinator for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden called and asked if I'd design a small collection of Hanami* inspired jewelry for the upcoming Sakura Matsuri (aka their Cherry Blossom Festival!) More details to come... whippeeeeee!

*What Is Hanami?
Hanami is the Japanese cultural tradition of viewing and cherishing each moment of the cherry blossom season. At Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Hanami is a New York City "rite of spring." (from the BBG site!)
