Kazari-Sakuiro's Beautiful Beaded Floral Jewelry


We love to look at drop dead gorgeous beaded jewelry right?  Well, thanks to reader Donna of  Sew and So, who discovered Kazari-Sakuiro, we can all do some major drooling!

The handmade bead work on this Japanese selling site is outstanding.  The link takes you to their extensive gallery. It is slow to load initially though but it's well worth the wait to see nearly 80 designs.


What stood out are the floral corsages which are either separate or cleverly incorporated into necklace designs. Shown here are some of my favorites.


If you want to check out individual design descriptions and find out about shopping, use Google Translate.  There is not much to go by though but the gorgeous designs speak volumes for themselves and their creator(s).

  7. Where can I buy some of these beautiful seed bead creations? I went to her site but didn't see "buy" (and I don't read Japanese!). Help!

  8. Pearl, what is their email address?

    Again, I couldn't figure much out due to not reading Japanese. Even google translate didn't help much... Thanks for responding.

  9. Thank you Pearl! Emailing them right now. I couldn't figure out how to change the language using Chrome browser, since I don't have anything to "right click" with... (Mac laptop with track pad) but hope someone can write back in English. They have such beautiful beaded corsage flowers... just stunning!

  10. ah, looked up how to right-click on a Mac, so now I have a fighting chance! Will try to change language from Japanese to English for this fabulous website:

  11. Thank you again, Pearl! I finally figured out how to translate the Japanese beaded corsage page, and it is so interesting!

    And I never thought to check with Fire Mountain Gems and Beads for the rubber or silicon eyeglass holders; why I don't know. I spent a year searching online to find one (expensive) place in NY. Found the eyeglass holders in clear silicon or black rubber, in packages of 10, 100 or 500. Not very expensive! They have the metal coil that slides up and down... I have had those coils loosen, so have tried to use the ones that have a bead on them, with both sides open so I can double the band over my glasses. But finding out that yours have lasted so long is really encouraging! Will give these a try. Your blog is a Godsend! Thanks for the info.

    Eyeglass holder, rubber and silver-finished brass, clear, 20x5mm-26x5mm with adjustable coil. Sold per pkg of 10 for $3.58:

  13. Got a reply from Kazari-Sakuiros, and unfortunately they do not sell outside of Japan.

    Does anyone know what is the mesh-like beading stitch they are using in many of their designs? I imagine this is what gives the flowers their incredible, life-like shape and flowing petals. Plus less weight.

  14. Yes please, I would also like to know what stitch they use to make that net-like work. Somewhere on Pinterest I found a comment that it could be Right Angle Weave. Could someone clarify..?
    Thank you

    1. No Eva. Netting isn't right angle weave. Check out this tutorial here : https://www.fusionbeads.com/basic-netting

    2. Thank you for the link. I know netting, and many flower petal and leaf tutorials are made with netting stitch. In netting stitch all the beads (and thread) are in the same vertical direction. But if you magnify the image of the above Kazari-Sakuiro orchid, you will see that the beads in the 2 big round petals + the trumpet petal, are in both vertical and horizontal direction, like in RAW stitch. The long thin petals look like peyote. This is only my personal opinion having looked at the image very closely, with no better information. I would love to hear from someone, who has seen the Kazari-Sakuiro work in detail.

    3. Your guess is as good as mine. Did you click through to the Japanese site? The images there are a bit clearer. The designs are for sale. I don't know of anyone who has bought any. Check out my book review on Japanese Beadwork :

  15. Thank you for the book review. I ordered the Japanese Beadwork book from amazon immediately. I have visited the kazari-sakuiro web page many times, eyes wide open, impressed by their work. And tried to figure out how they make the mesh-like petals. Thanks again for all your support and professional insight.
