This is the Dance of Sakura, a culmination of my techniques. In particular, I created a wax mold of the design and carefully polished this base. Then, I cast the wax in sterling silver and polished again. A sterling silver chain is attached on each side of the pendant, with wrapped wire containing gold-filled beads and a clasp to finish. It also required polishing and finishing the details.
The ephemeral nature of the single sakura blossom inspired me to capture its dying dance. As a mother of two young children, the tiny, pink sakura blossom reminds me of fragility. People grow. Flowers wither. But, their legacy endures. The twisted branches bring forth these delicate flowers each spring. The slightest wind cannot blow away my silver creation. It can adorn anyone for years to come.

【飾品保養 Jewelry Care & Cleaning】
+ Storing & Care sterling silver jewelry
Storing sterling silver jewelry in the open air and humidity for extended periods of time can cause it to tarnish quickly. Sterling silver jewelry tarnish first appears as a golden hue on sterling silver, then quickly turns to black. This is a normal process that is caused by oxidization and moisture from air and sunshine.
To reduce tarnish and keep sterling silver jewelry tarnish free, it is recommended that sterling silver jewelry be stored in an air-tight plastic zip lock bag.
The natural oils from the skin help minimize the tarnishing of sterling silver items, so the more frequently a piece is worn, the less likely it is to tarnish.
+ Some tasks that should be avoided when wearing jewelry include kitchen work, gardening, cleaning the house and other common tasks.PLEASE remove sterling silver jewelry during those tasks.

+ How to clean your sterling silver jewelry
Clean sterling silver jewelry with a soft 100% cotton (nub free) cloth or jewelry cleaning cloth and gently rub off any excess dirt or makeup. Sterling silver is a very soft metal and can be scratched if it is rubbed it too briskly. If a brush is needed, never use anything but a clean and very soft bristle brush, like a babies tooth brush or a horsehair silver brush. Paper, polyester, and coarse fabrics often contain wood fibers or synthetics, that can cause tiny scratches in the surface of sterling silver jewelry.
Another way to remove light dirt, fingerprints or makeup on sterling silver jewelry is to just add a small amount of mild liquid dishwashing detergent in a 1/2 cup of warm water, gently wash the item, and rinse thoroughly with clean fresh water. A soft bristle brush may be used to clean the corners or crevices of the item. Dry it completely before storing it in an air tight zip lock bag.
+Pearls are beautiful. Unfortunately, the layers of nacre of which a pearl is made are very soft by jewelry standards and easily damaged. Since it is an organic compound, pearls also are easily dulled or even eaten away by chemicals and alcohol. Wash cultured pearls in very mild, soapy water and nothing else. It's also a good idea to bring your cultured pearls in for restringing every couple of years, especially if you wear them often.
+If your sterling silver jewelry with special oxidized treatment, do not over-clean, avoid oxidized design effect disappears.
