Pink Blossom Post Earrings
- Handcrafted in the U.S.A.
- Hand painted pewter cast
The soft sakura petals of these pretty stud earrings are hand painted and made from the pewter cast of a real blossom. Evocative of the cherry blossoms that bloom in Washington, D.C. in the spring time, they make a lovely gift.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
