Spotlight- Sakura

Hi and welcome to the start of a new season at WeMake. We will be introducing you to our wonderful designers and their work and to start us off, please met Anna aka Sakura Jewellery. Thank you for stopping by.

As a London solicitor, Anna was becoming increasingly buried in the stresses and strains of life in the corporate world. Anna says:

“My work as a lawyer was interesting in that it provided a technical challenge, but the environment didn't nurture me spiritually and left me very little time to pursue anything creative outside of work. So, I decided it was time for a complete overhaul of not only my career but my life!”

Nowadays designing and making jewellery IS Anna’s day job which gives her plenty of time to concentrate on the important things; her designs. A clear theme running through Anna’s work is nature and she captures the beauty of it throughout her work, be it recreating the essence of flowers and leaves, or working with the natural beauty of a gemstone.

Anna’s business name ‘Sakura’ comes for the Japanese name for cherry blossom, hinting at Anna’s half-Japanese heritage. There is a very Japanese feel to her designs, which shows in the delicate detailing and strong colours.

The Sakura blossom features in her ‘Dew’ necklace a version of which Anna wore at her blessing ceremony (non-legal wedding ceremony) held in Holland back in May of this year. Anna’s love of the colour teal also shines through in this piece.

Waiting for We Make Christmas?

Anna will be bringing along these wonderful gemstone bracelets, along with many more Sakura designs.

These bracelets are even more serene and majestic in real life and you won’t be able to resist picking them up and trying them on.

Can’t wait for We Make Christmas?

Sakura Jewellery is available online through her personal website boutique and her etsy store.

Sakura Jewellery features timeless designs in a range of media including silver, ceramics, and natural gemstones. Anna’s designs are unique and stunning and very wearable. Their exquisite classic beauty makes them pieces that can be kept forever and therefore wonderful gifts.
