Behind the Design

In Japanese, Sakura means cherry blossom. And to much of the world, cherry blossoms mean celebration. Designer Onofre Casas was inspired and lends his expertise in light, shadow and shape and love of nature.

This collection is one of a kind, and we are so excited to present it to you.
We hope you are as inspired we were.

The Inspiration

Onofre Casas

What other flowering tree holds such fascination, evokes such beauty in its mass bloom, or provides such simple joys with its traditions, symbolism and auspicious legends? In Japan, the bloom is seen as a fluffy cloud of pale, pink-tinged flowers under which generations of people have held celebratory picnics and flower viewing parties. Many places around the world pay tribute to the flower—one of the biggest celebrations is in Washington, D.C.




Sakura cherry blossom
"My love of the unique shapes nature creates led me to all of these interpretations of the legendary five-petaled cherry blossom," explains designer Onofre Casas. "I treat each flower as a delicate sculptural element, as dainty and detailed as it is when flowering on the tree, then relishing its permanence in silver. If I had to pick a favorite, it might be the filigree pendant showing the branches with their buds as well as blooms. Drop earrings dangling a trio of blossoms fill me with joy. I’ve circled most pieces with a ring of beading, as if to frame it for hanging, like fine art. Handcrafted at each step of the way, our artisans have made my designs into something that makes me very proud."

Sakura Rose Quartz Jewelry
Rose Quartz is a semi-precious stone that is revered for promoting love and harmony. Onofre has used it in cabochon form. The pretty soft pink hue is showcased within a border of delicate silver petals and granulated detailing for a very romantic effect.

Sakura Jade Jewelry
Jade is a semi-precious stone revered for promoting harmony between mind, body, and spirit. Each pendant will be unique because jade varies in hue and inclusions. You can truly say you have a one-of-a-kind necklace.

Sakura Handbag design by Irina Titarenko
The story of the Sakura handbag begins with custom designer artwork. Brighton has developed an innovative process for transferring the original artwork of its designers onto leather. Every detail comest to life through this digital process.

Next, each individual leather petal is crafted one by one. They are die-cut, heat-shaped into dimensional petal forms and then assembled into voluptuous, three-dimensional flower shapes and appliquéd onto the bags. The top petals get hand-beaded. The process is labor intensive, but so worth it.

Multiple Sakura Handbags and satchels
It takes 12 hours to make the Sakura medium satchel—3 hours and 45 minutes for the flowers and 8 hours for the hand lacing, hand beading, and edge-dye application on white buffalo leather.
