Your own precious breastmilk preserved forever using high quality resin and .925 sterling silver jewelry findings. Many of the silver pieces are configured by me, and those that aren't, are handmade by other jewelers or silversmiths. The pieces I am offering can be crafted with your personal inclusions, including breastmilk, locks of hair, cremains, placenta/cord or any combination of them together. I also offer add-ons of pearl shimmer, colorants, and colored glitter additions to your pieces. * COMING SOON: locks of hair, cremains, and placenta/cord.
How's it made: Natural and chemical preservation process, and mixing with jewelry grade resin. It took me almost a year to get the process correct! What it looks like: Preserved breastmilk without colorants or glitters may look creamy yellow, blue/white, green/white, white or even slightly clear!

How to send your personal inclusions: -Double bag your milk and other personal inclusions in breastmilk storage bags or ziplock bags. Please give back to me in an envelope labeled with your name and what you ordered, either in person or to the address provided to you upon ordering. Tracking and insurance of $50 is highly encouraged if you’re sending via USPS. -Amounts needed: 1oz or AT LEAST 30ml of milk (doesn't need to be fresh - thawed only - does not need ice to ship); *COMING SOON* 1/2 tsp of cremains; 1 placenta pill; 20-40 strands of hair (tie with thread at the end to keep together); small nub of cord (pea sized). Only send dehydrated placenta and cord. Please don't send your "last" of anything if you can help it. This is to ensure that you are able to have a back up should something happen and you need to send more of your personal inclusions. For more information on personal inclusions, please message me in advance. What happens if you have leftover milk? The reason I ask for a specific amount is so that there is less chance of having wasted or leftover milk. I will however accept larger amounts. What I have chosen to offer is storage of any leftover milk, disposal, or to send it back to you. Please let me know how you would like to handle any leftover milk When you order.
Safety: I am OSHA trained, wear PPE (personal protective equipment), an have a PA Foodhandlers Card. I have a home-studio dedicated to breastmilk jewelry making. Guarantee: I personally guarantee each piece of jewelry to be created from your very own personal inclusions. I am honored each time a family chooses me to preserve their precious DNA and have the utmost respect for the process. I treat each piece with care as if it were my own family's keepsake. I never work with more than one clients milk at a time. I also guarantee workmanship for 1 year. I will repair (or subcontract repair) if the defect is from the handmade process that affects wear. Since each piece is handmade, there may be slight variations including, small bubbles in the breastmilk resin, tool marks on the silver , etc. Your piece will be cleaned and inspected prior to delivery but those variations are normal and not considered workmanship defects.
How long does it take to receive my jewelry: Each piece takes at least a full week to complete, due to the preservation process. Once I receive your personal inclusions I will update you on your place in the queue. Most orders will take 3-4 weeks from when I receive your personal inclusions to packaging for pickup or shipping. I only ship via USPS Priority and that will be billed at actual cost when I’m ready to ship. At this time I cannot accept international or rush orders or make promises for holidays, birthdays, special events etc.
What's included in my package: Your jewelry, gift bag or box, certificate of authenticity, polishing cloth, and instructions for wear/care. Can I get a refund? Once I receive your personal inclusions, I preserve them right away and order and any custom jewelry pieces that I may need to complete your order. If you haven't sent your personal inclusions (within 1 week of your order), and decide to cancel, I will refund 100%. If I've already started preservation on your order and you choose to cancel, I will refund 40% and nothing will be sent to you. If I've already completed your order and you choose to cancel, no refund will be given. I will send your jewelry to you or dispose of it accordingly.
Gift Certificates are available.
