About creators

My name is Karaia. I am the creator of Sakura Milk Jewelry. I grew up in America and came to Japan after meeting my Japanese husband. My parents were sentimental people, and they left me with my first haircut and other memories. Every time my parents took out my memorial box and opened it, I could feel how much they cherished all the little memories. It wasn't until I became a parent that I realized how quickly time passes as a mother. When I had my first child, I really wanted something to remember the days of breastfeeding, so in 2017, when my child started weaning, I created my first breast milk jewelry to commemorate that milestone. Along with my engagement ring, it is one of my most treasured pieces of jewelry. A while after my first piece, I started making breast milk jewelry for friends and friends of friends. Whenever I make one, I record a video of the process of preserving breast milk so that the person I'm giving it to can feel the process up close.

Breastfeeding my second child was much more difficult than my first. Just at the peak of the first wave of the pandemic, it took three days to give birth and even longer to recover. I wanted to breastfeed my second child the same way I did my first, but my body wasn't doing what I wanted. One month after giving birth, both mother and baby finally recovered and were able to breastfeed, which was their long-awaited goal. At that time, we created a set of breast milk jewelry to celebrate our departure, and that became the starting point for Sakura Milk Jewelry. It started by making random pieces of jewelry, then started making them constantly, and word of mouth quickly spread.

The name ``Sakura Milk Jewelry'' celebrates my difficult journey through breastfeeding and the unforgettable story of undying love. I started this website and enrolled in a jewelry school to improve my jewelry crafting skills. I cherish each opportunity you give me, the opportunity to create something special to commemorate my journey as a mother.

Origin of the name Sakura Milk Jewelry

As a creator myself, this name has a very deep meaning. Sakura has the meaning of joy, a new start, and a blessing. Milk is made from breast milk (because our store developed from breast milk jewelry), as well as jewelry and memorial items made to remember the love that mothers give to their children.Jewelry. Thus the name Sakura Milk Jewelry was born.

Does Sakura Milk Jewelry have any other staff?

We have a Japanese assistant who can respond to Japanese messages. She is also a mother and is very involved in running the Sakura Milk Jewelry shop, which allows me to focus on creating accessories.

I'm glad you learned about Sakura Milk Jewelry.
