What is breast milk jewelry?
It is jewelry that is very special to a mother. It commemorates her nursing journey and serves as a reminder of her selfless gift. I take the mother's own milk (surrogate, milk donor) and preserve it in resin. The breast milk is no longer in liquid form when the jewelry is complete.
How much breast milk is required?
I need about 0.5 ounces of milk for about 2-3 pieces. Anything more than 3 pieces, I would need about 1 ounce.
How do I ship the milk to you?
I find the cheapest and best way to ship is either through usps.com or paypal.com/shipnow. The milk needs to be in a small breast milk storage container (such as medela or the ones given in the hospital) or a breast milk storage bag. Please double bag the milk. Milk can be fresh or frozen and will not go "bad" for jewelry purposes. I do sterilize it when i do receive it. Please clearly label the bag with name, phone #, email, address, order #, and item purchased. International orders can be shipped via DHL, UPS, or FED EX.
Can I use old or frozen milk?
Yes, absolutely! It is still perfect for making your keepsake.
What inclusions do you work with?
I work with placenta (capsule form only) and breast milk only
Where do I send the milk?

How do I care for my jewelry?
Breast milk jewelry is very delicate. Do not use jewelry cleaners. If you need to clean your keepsake, please use cool water and mild soap. Avoid extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. Be sure to take off your jewelry when swimming or showering.
How long do i have to send my milk?

How do I know my breast milk is in the jewelry?
Although there is no way for me to "prove" your milk was used, as a nursing mother I know the importance and symbolism of these items. As a pharmacist, precision and exactness is essential; one mistake in filling someone's prescription could result in serious adverse reactions or even death. I take the responsibility of handling your milk as seriously as I do in my professional career
How long will it be until I receive my item?
It depends on how many orders I have at the time. I post my current wait time under the milk received tab.
Will my item look just like the picture?
No, every mamma is unique and the jewelry will reflect that. No two mother's breast milk is the same. There will be many variations especially in color. Many of my friends joke and tell me I produce "skim milk" because it's so light in color, but several moms produce what my nursing mothers friends call "butter" which can vary in color (very yellow to bright white).
I have a design in mind, can you make it?
I can try :)
