When I thought about going back to my artistic roots, I also thought about honoring my Japanese American heritage. I chose Hanafuda cards as the highlighted material for my first project because both the game, Sakura, and creating mixed media art taught me a lot about navigating through life. About 70 Hanafuda cards, 400 jump rings, 4 feet of jewelry chain, 3 lobster claps, and about 10 hours later . . . here is my Hanafuda card crop top!
