Trained as a painter, Sakura Haru creates handcrafted objects of desire with respect to sustainability, working with recycled metals, conflict-free stones and low-waste studio practices. Sakura is from Okinawa, one of the tiniest and most tropical islands of Japan. Much of her inspiration comes from the vast sea, which translates directly into her work. The style is likened to oceanic forms and textures that look as if they were polished by the waves. After over 8 years of experience working for established and reputable jewelry designers, Haru began her own line of delicate jewelry in 2008. Sakura now lives and works in San Francisco, California.
