The beautiful bond of breastmilk jewellery
Breastmilk jewellery not only has sentimental value but can also be worn every day and can be
passed down through the generations. It’s the beautiful bond between you and your baby that will
never fade, making it an invaluable part of your breastfeeding journey and beyond. In this article,
we’ll describe what Breastmilk jewellery is, tell you how to look for an artist, as well as the
importance of creating keepsakes in breastmilk jewellery and breastmilk keepsakes in general. We’ll
even discuss how to create a customized order with us!
What is Breastmilk Jewellery?
As a mother, you can’t help but fall in love with every moment with your baby. So when they grow
to that next milestone, it can be hard to let go. A way for mothers and parents to connect more
deeply and make these moments last is through breastmilk jewellery. Each jewellery piece contains
a portion of mother’s breast milk that she has saved in a special pendant, charm or ring. The result is
a beautiful keepsake that reminds mums and babies how much they are connected and their feeding
journey wasn’t just about nourishment, but also about making beautiful memories together. There
are even inspirational bracelets made from single drops of breast milk and necklaces full of tiny
beads that double as dream beads – each drop symbolizing something dear to mum. This jewellery
represents all types of breastfeeding scenarios – whether breastfeeding was a challenge or went
smoothly from birth; whether exclusive breastfeeding was achieved, partial breastfeeding only
occurred or if formula was introduced at any point along their child’s life.
Why Give a Keepsake Made From Your Breast Milk?
There’s nothing like breastfeeding to bond you with your child. And giving a keepsake made from
your breast milk is a way to symbolize that special relationship and preserve it for generations to
come. If you want to create something that will be cherished for years, we recommend investing in
keepsake jewellery made from your breast milk, hair, umbilical cord and even encapsulated
placenta. Not only is it completely unique, but there’s no material more sentimental or as beautiful as breast milk. A necklace made from your own breast milk, whether it contains just a drop or even
mixed with formula is truly priceless. Give someone you love something they’ll never forget by
creating everlasting memories in their very own keepsake box.
Step 1 - Decide on What Kind of Breast Milk Keepsake You Want
A pendant, ring, or bracelet are all great options. Each will create a unique and personal piece of
jewellery that can be passed down to future generations. Think about your style; Do you like
simplistic designs? Boho chic? Dainty or minimalistic? Maybe you love all the glam with diamonds
and sparkles. Next, think about what you'd usually wear. Earrings? Pendants? Bracelets or rings? Do
you want it to match your existing Jewellery? What precious metals do you love and even what work
you do and how it could affect your jewellery e.g. baby tugging on a necklace? Using hand sanitiser if
your a nurse or health care worker and even using chemicals if you are a hairdresser. Once you’ve
decided on what type of breast milk keepsake you want to make, it’s time to get creative! And
believe us when we say that there is no limit to what you can do with your breast milk jewellery.
Step 2 - Selecting an Artist
Selecting an artist can be a daunting process but finding one you trust is vital. Ask to see their
portfolio, consider how you’d like your piece to look, and if they are able to craft it. If you aren’t sure
what type of style you’re looking for, consider doing some research online to learn about common
techniques used in your field and then choose from there. We recommend doing a search for
Breastmilk Jewellery, having a look in your local mums and bubs Facebook groups, Pinterest and Etsy
are great options. Look for someone who has good reviews, look at their techniques used, turn
around times and ask questions! Any great artist will help with designing, your budget and answer
any questions you may have about care instructions or resin. I.e check if they use UV VS Epoxy.
Tip- Just remember cheap prices don't always mean quality! If you see a piece that is out of your
price range, ask the creator if they have payment options
Step 3 - Ordering a Custom Piece
Ordering a custom piece is simple. When you find your perfect piece simply message us with your
personalization requests (you can message us via email, Facebook or IG), we can create a custom
listing just for you! After you place your order, you will receive confirmation, please give us between
9-12 weeks depending on your order, to work with our jeweller to create the perfect piece for you.
Making breast milk jewellery has always been a personal, emotional endeavor for me. It’s more than
just money-making—I’m proud that I’ve been able to share my passion with other breastfeeding
mothers and help them create beautiful keepsakes they can wear proudly and bring joy to those
around them. But I know there are many out there who want to make their own breast milk
jewellery but are hesitant about making such an investment.
