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 are sentimental types 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 these small memories. And it wasn't until I became a parent that I realized how quickly the days of motherhood go by. When I had my first child, I really wanted something to remember the days of breastfeeding, and in 2017, when my child started weaning, I made my first breast milk jewelry to commemorate that milestone. Along with my engagement ring, it has become one of my most treasured pieces of jewelry. Some time after the first piece, I started making breast milk jewelry for my friends and friends of friends. Every time I made it, I recorded the process of preserving the breast milk in a video so that the person I gave it to could feel the production process close to me.

Breastfeeding my second child was much more difficult than my first. Right at the peak of the first wave of the pandemic, it took me three days to give birth and even longer to recover. I wanted to breastfeed my second child as well as my first, but my body didn't go as well as I thought it would. One month after giving birth, both mother and baby finally recovered and were able to breastfeed. At that time, we made a set of breast milk jewelry to celebrate our departure, and that was the starting point of authentic Sakura Milk Jewelry. From making jewelry randomly to making it constantly, word of mouth spread quickly.

The name "Sakura Milk Jewelry" is a tribute to my difficult breastfeeding experience and the unforgettable story of unyielding love. After launching this website, I enrolled in a jewelry vocational school to improve my jewelry crafting skills. I cherish every opportunity you give me to create a special piece that commemorates my journey as a mother.

Origin of the name of Sakura Milk Jewelry

As a creator, this name means a lot to me. Sakura represents joy, new beginnings, and blessings. Milk is the milk of mother's milk (because the store was developed from the origin of breast milk jewelry), and jewelry and memorial items generally made to keep memories of the love that mothers give to their children. Thus the name Sakura Milk Jewelry was born.

Does Sakura Milk Jewelry have other staff?

There is 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, so I can focus on making accessories.

I am very happy to know about Sakura Milk Jewelry.
