Breastmilk Jewelry from Post Bedtime Creations


For many mothers the years spent breastfeeding their babies represent some of the most meaningful of their child rearing years. Breastfeeding can be sweet, difficult, intimate, stressful and ordinary and can mean different things to different people, but most would say it meant something significant. So, is it any surprise some women want to have a keepsake of remembrance for this period of life? 

Enter, breastmilk jewelry. A beautiful and sentimental way to remember the intimate nourishing blessing of breastfeeding.

There are many ways to make breastmilk jewelry, but most artisans dry, shape and then resin coat the final product. The final pearlescent white or yellowish white bead or design is then worn as a necklace, ring or other type of jewelry. In addition, dried placenta, hair or ashes sometimes feature in jewelry.

A few months ago I teamed up with Post Bedtime Creations, one of these well-versed artisans, to try her jewelry. She provided the pieces shown at no cost to me, but I did have to wait a long while due to her extensive customer list and didn’t get my choice of pattern. The final result was beautiful, and she even included an identical copy of the pendant for my daughter.



The ring is breastmilk only. The pendant is breastmilk with a background of placenta ashes.
