Reviews & Testimonials



Artisan Designs Mala Beads Necklaces and Bracelets are our craft. This business Sakura Designs LLC. was founded in 2005.





in 2005


Sakura Designs is an offshoot of its larger parent company, Chopa Imports which was acquired in 2005. Chopa sold the day that Dawn went into the hospital to give birth to her daughter. Since then many customers have followed us because our malas, made here in Colorado, are exceptionally well crafted.

Just received the mala bracelets I ordered and I’m really totally impressed with the quality. Especially for the price. Ordered 4 for a variety of reasons and can’t wait to add to my practice. Will definitely be ordering from this site again, highly recommend.
