    How is your breastmilk jewelry made?

    For your your breastmilk jewelry, we mix your own breastmilk, our special developed curing agent (to ensure your jewelry does not turn yellow) and high-quality epoxy resin with UV protective formula. Once they are fully mixes without bubble, we poured it into the mold of your design to solidate it. Finally, we put a high-grade sealing layer over the stone to protect your jewelry from scratches and shines for a long time.

    How much breast milk do you need for one of your designs?

    Milk: For one 10mm stone, 15ml is enough, but please send us 30ml (about 1 oz, sufficient for 2-3 pieces of jewelry).

    Every piece of our breastmilk jewelry is handcrafted with love. We try our very best to maintain the highest standards of crafting. However, it may show variability and minor imperfections. Please note that no two pieces will be identical because colors and natures of all materials vary from person to person. Your piece will not look like the next person's, nor will it look like the photos on our website (which all differ too). If this is something that may be of concern please let us know before place your order as handmade jewelry are not mass-produced and does not like store bought and factory finished pieces.
