We will cast just your milk in strong UV protected resin and turn it into a breastmilk teardrop necklace. Breastmilk jewellery is a stunning way to remember the close bond you and your little one share. You can find a great La Leche League article on the wonderful properties of human milk here. You can add an additional element like baby’s first curl, umbilical cord or placenta powder too if you like.
Breastmilk Sending Kits
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order and here’s some advice on sending it in, please read it. It’s really important you keep some milk in the freezer while waiting for your kit, and after you send then keep some back just in case. 15ml is plenty as we will send you two pots. If you prefer you can fill one for us (7ml) and retain the other in your own freezer, it’s very rare we need the second backup pot and this gives low supply clients some extra security.
Breastmilk Teardrop Necklace colour options
Boobie awards are a way to celebrate the length of time you’ve been feeding your little one, from amethyst for “we tried our best” to ruby for three years and onwards. For the full Boobie Awards page click here.
You can choose to include one of our highly pigmented resin colour sparkle mixes to tint your milk, or one of our new breastmilk pearly sparkle mixes. The pearly sparkle mixes are very subtle and will give your milk a hint of colour in certain lights. All of our resin sparkle mixes contain ethical and synthetic mica (free from child mining), plant based eco glitters and opalescent flakes and are hand blended by Nikki.

Breastmilk Teardrop Necklace
New teardrop necklace setting
We now offer these special scalloped edge teardrops, as shown in the main product image. The new teardrop setting is made from solid 935 anti-tarnish silver which contains around 93.5% silver (925 sterling silver has a purity of 92.5%, and is known as 925 silver). The new setting design was handcrafted by our owner Nikki and the teardrops are cast in the UK from 100% recycled nickel-free solid silver, including our own scrap silver from ring making! They are eco friendly, ethical and subtle. The new settings weigh around 3g (previously 2g) and are engravable. They are the same size as before, around 20mm wide.
The necklace includes a 20″/50cm lightweight solid sterling silver chain. Due to the weight of the pendant, we highly recommend you choose a Necklace Chain Upgrades listing (click here). Feel free to get in touch with us first for a discount for a chain upgrade.
engraving your breastmilk teardrop necklace
We can engrave text and numbers on the back of the necklace. We’ll always engrave in Arial font as standard but let us know if you’d like the engraving in a different font instead.
Add your text – upper and lower case, numbers and punctuation in your chosen font. You can choose Roman numerals, birth coordinates (we’re happy to help you work that out), or messages of love and breastfeeding triumphs. We have a blog with memorial quotes and inspiration (click here). Here are some special characters you can copy and paste as well.
