If you have some extra milk in your stash, you might be wondering what to do with it.
Or as an other idea, you can use a little bit in breast milk jewelry.
There’s some pretty breast milk jewelry for sale from various online vendors, but I could never bring myself to shell out between $200 to $1000 for a small piece.
Here’s a quote from one of the reviews online:
The instructions was a little confusing, but after reading it several times, and matching it with the Chinese instruction pictures. That helped, make sure when you melt your white substance they give you, in a plastic bag. That you put it back in the hot water along with the bag. Because it hardens pretty fast causing it to be difficult when trying to put it in the glass ball. This was very easy to me once I figured out everything. And things to do to to make it easy. Just a FYI the glue that comes along with it is not good at all. Please use some more glue. I used gel gorilla glue, and it help the pendant together wonderfully. So whatever reason you have for making this necklace. Enjoy it, take your time, read it several times if need be. And it will turn out beautifully. Also it did come with an extra pendant if you wanted, to do an extra necklace.
There are probably good reasons to order your breast milk jewelry from a reputable business with good reviews. But here are a few assurances that you might have if you use a DIY breast milk jewelry kit:
- You save a lot of money.
- Your milk won’t get lost in the mail.
- Your jewelry won’t get lost in the mail.
- You know for sure the jewelry contains your own milk. I always wondered how one can be sure their milk doesn’t get mixed up with someone else’s milk when they send it off to a jewelry maker.
- You won’t have to wait months for your jewelry. Some of the breast milk jewelry websites I visited said they have a 10 to 14 week turnaround from when they receive your materials. That’s a long time to wait.
