At the end of 2018 I decided to stop making breastmilk jewellery. I was going through a strange time in my life; in a good place with my mental health and really enjoying life, I wanted to take a small step back from my business. Breastmilk jewellery has always made up around half of our orders so rather than taking a break from the website and business as a whole, I stopped offering them. I’ve really missed creating pieces with milk and making breastmilk jewellery again is such a passion of mine.
I’m in a much stronger position than I have been for several years now. I did a course of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and learnt that I am a great mum, wife and someone who is trying their best. I have had so many setbacks and it got to a point where I worried that too much on my plate would put me in a bad place again. A few years ago I tried to commit suicide and I never want to feel like that again. There’s no “cured” for depression, but feeling more able to cope now that we’ve caught up with orders has given me a new perspective.
Small Business Income
As a working mummy I was lucky to be able to take a break for a while and just offer memorial jewellery. Now I want to be able to help more with our family’s bills. When you order from a small business, it’s always appreciated! Making breastmilk jewellery again is going to help put food on the table.
