Would You Wear Breastmilk Jewelry?


We’ve heard of pregnant women making molds of their bellies or saving parts of their placentas… but would you ever wear jewelry made from breastmilk?

Apparently, this is a thing.

Basically, new moms can send away a sample of their breastmilk in order to have it turned into a priceless memento.

“This will be a keepsake to remind you of the breastfeeding bond between you and your child for a lifetime,” writes Allicia Mogavero on her Mommy Milk Creations Etsy site.

“A handmade pendant or keepsake made from your own milk to last forever.”

Mogavero uses a special process to preserve a heart or star shaped drop of “plasticized” milk in a bead, which can then be worn on a chain as a necklace.

Worried about mailing your baby juice? You can also make your own, with this DIY kit we found on Etsy:

“The kit comes complete with ingredients for preservation, detailed instructions, and a locket with a chain (as shown) so your finished piece will be ready to wear.”

Interesting concept.

We wanted to see what the moms in our office thought of these unique fashion accessories, so we took a quick straw poll.

“Why would you put that in there? That’s not jewelry – that’s goo!” said one co-worker. “I don’t know, I think it’s kind of nice,” said another.

What do you think?
