Madame Butterfly

Friday, 19 April 2013

Each product that Anzu creates starts with a thoughtful hand-illustration. When painting this design, I was thinking of a cartoon idea of Japan and of Madame Butterfly.

However cliche it might be, I still love Japanoise and western images of an imagined Japan fairytale world.

One of ladies in kimonos, lacquered screens, fans,

cherry blossoms,

and of fairytale landscapes. So the charms I added to the bracelet were a butterfly, fan, cherry blossom and a palm to represent the tropical landscape of Kyushu, Japan's most southerly point.
