About 60 years ago, Seiichi Katsuoka first came
across some glass seed beads and instantly became fascinated
by their brilliance and beauty,so in 1949, he dedicated himself
to learning the art of glass seed bead making. Seiichi's passion
for making beautiful, high quality glass seed beads was passed
down to his son, Hiroshi. Hiroshi added innovation to passion
and began creating new types and styles of beads. This resulted
in the founding of our company; Japan's first successful mass-producing
bead manufacturing company. Since then we at MIYUKI have been
continuing Hiroshi's innovative drive, and we have produced
many new and wonderful kinds of beads, like Delica Beads,
Drop Beads, and Twisted Beads, to name a few. We have pledged
to keep developing attractive and beautiful beads. MIYUKI
