Upon receiving your breast milk, we'll notify you of its safe arrival. Our organized system involves assigning a dedicated labeled container to each order. This ensures that your milk is correctly handled for the keepsake creation process. We label, heat, and cool the milk to eliminate bacteria. After preservation and rapid drying with added preservatives, the milk is sealed in your personal container to dry for 24 hours. It's then transferred to a labeled zip lock bag with preservation date, your name, and order number. We retain preserved milk for 3 years, unless you specify otherwise. For crafting, 10ml of milk, either pumped or hand-expressed, is sufficient.
Cremation & Memorial
Upon receiving your cherished inclusions, you'll get an email confirming their safe arrival. Each client gets a dedicated container, where we add your order form and any requested notes along with your loved one's precious ashes or inclusions. Cremation orders receive top priority as we understand the emotional significance. We're meticulous about using the right amount of cremations to avoid any waste, ensuring utmost care in crafting your keepsakes. After crafting begins, the cremations go back into your container, stored securely in our studio. Before crafting each cremation keepsake, we offer a personal blessing as a mark of respect for their departed soul. It's an honor to be part of this sacred process.
We can use as little as one strand of hair in a keepsake, if you would like it to be a little thicker, Please ensure that we have a matchstick width and about 1 centimetre long. for beads we do request 3 centimetres length to ensure it wraps around the bead fully, remembering if the hair is white it can be transparent once in resin, a good way to check this is to dip the hair in a glass of water if it goes clear you know that it will be clear in resin.

If there is something specific you are wanting please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.

- Please avoid exposing your keepsake to water, alcohol hand sanitiser, excessive heat, direct sunlight, and chemicals such as lotions and perfumes.
- Do not leave your jewellery in the sun or heat (example of this would be leaving it in a hot car). Extended exposures to heat can cause the resin to yellow over time.
- Whilst resin is water resistant it is not waterproof. So to make your piece last as long as possible please follow all instructions carefully.
- It will survive a sprinkling of rain but should be removed for showering, swimming, hand washing, exercise, tanning etc. Exposure to these elements can dull or discolour your piece overtime.
- When not in use, store in a cool, dark place in the original packaging if possible.
- Sterling silver can tarnish over time and can be polished with a soft polishing cloth provided in your package, but polishing agents should be avoided.
