Sachiko makes beadwork jewelry using Czech glass beads, Japanese seed beads, and natural gemstones. Her customers love her nostalgic bead jewelry designs.
She focuses not only on the designs and the shapes but also on wearability and durability. She designs her beadwork products to look sophisticated and uses different-sized beads to make the jewelry lighter. In addition, her weaving techniques and the use of a good quality string give her jewelry strength so that it doesn’t easily come apart.
She has been showing at the Powell Street Festival for about 15 years. You will also likely see her in the events such as Sakura Days Japan Fair at VanDusen and Deck the Halls Craft Fair at the Heritage Hall.
