My breastfeeding journey with my second child was a bumpier ride. I had him during the first peak of the pandemic. It was a long three day delivery with an even longer recovery. I hoped to breastfeed my second as I did my first but wasn't able to do so physically. A month after his birth we both had recovered and I was breastfeeding as I had longed for. At this time I created another breastmilk jewelry set and that is when Sakura Milk Jewelry really took off.
I quickly learned I was not the only mother who wanted to memorialize their breastfeeding journey. Word started to spread and I enrolled in a jewelry academy to help further my jewelry craft. Ever since, I have treasured every opportunity a mother has given me to make them a special memento of their motherhood journeys.
It has a lot of meaning to the creator. Sakura as a symbol of joy, new beginnings and celebration. Milk for the breastmilk. (As the shop started as breastmilk jewelry and expanded.) Jewelry for the jewelry and keepsakes that are made to memorialize a mothers love.
We have a Japanese assistant to help us keep up with the Japanese emails. She is also a mother and is passionate about our shop. She helps give Kaliah more time to craft your keepsakes.
