Q1. What is the greatness of Czech glass beads?

Czech glass beads are made in many ways and have softness and warmth. There are many different types of them and have beautiful texture and depth. You won't get bored with them.



Q2. Please describe your production process.

I think about many patterns from a lot of parts while I am touching them. When the image comes up, I start making the jewelry. I bead the parts on the base. I repeat the process many times and then it will be completed.  It takes a lot of time to bead all the parts so it becomes delicate jewelry.


Q3. How do you get Czech glass beads?

These days, there are some Czech glass beads wholesalers in Japan so I can get Czech glass beads from them. But, I can't find bigger beads or delicate one in Japan so I actually go to Czech to find them.



Q4. What made you interested in NY market?

I want to know léto to the customers in the other counties so I do international shipping. Many customers are in Asia but I wanted to share the greatness of Czech glass beads to more people so I was interested in NY market.


Q5. Lastly, please share some comments to customers at the ARCADE JAPAN.
