'12 months on the cherry street' a brief Story by asagi maeda
12 months on the cherry street Japanese people have expressed nature changes in the four seasons into arts and literaturefor a very long time. I also tried to express the changes in the four seasons in my jewelry with cherry blossom trees which Japanese people love. There are lots of streets with cherry blossom trees in Japan. We go picnic under the trees in spring. I imagined stories under the trees throughout the year. Snowing in January, st. Valentine‘s day inFebruary, cherry blossom brooms in March, they fall in April, fresh green in May, rainy season in June, feel nice under trees in July, kids catch insects inAugust, scents of autumn in September, reading books in October, Autumn leaves in November, they fall in December.I connect each months by the word “and then”. Time passes next to next... it’s Nature.
