Michele's Breastmilk Jewelry Making Event

Join Sara and Michele on April 29th at 2pm for breastmilk jewelry making! Sara will take you through all the steps to create your one of a kind piece.

Ordering Jewelry

The price for the jewelry includes all the materials needed for the event.  All jewelry pieces are custom ordered, so please place your jewelry order at least 2-3 weeks prior to the event so it will arrive in time.

Preserving Milk

Sara will need your breastmilk prior to the event, also at least 2-3 weeks in advance.  Sara needs to preserve the milk in order for it to be mixed in with resin on the night of the event.  Once you order your jewelry and confirm your attendance to the event, Sara will arrange for pickup or dropoff of your milk (if local to Manchester CT).  If past central CT then Sara will send you instructions for mailing your milk (it's easy, don't worry!)  Sara is very precise and methodical about keeping milks organized during the preservation process.

You may give Sara fresh milk, frozen milk, or unusable milk.  Even the milk that has been sitting in your freezer for years because you could never throw it away.  All I need is about an oz of your milk (please no more than 3 oz MAX) and if it is frozen milk please double bag it (we don't want it to leak!). Also, please LABEL your milk with your first and last name.

FAQ

-How do you preserve the milk?

Your milk goes through a dehydration process which takes about 12-14 hours. Once preserved, it is ready to be worked with to make the jewelry piece.

- Will I be able to take the jewelry piece home after the event?

After you create your jewelry piece it takes about 8 hours for it to dry, and then another 2-3 days for it to fully cure.  Sara will provide a way to transport your piece home (you will have to be very careful) or you can work it out with Michele to leave it and pick it up another day.

-Can I order more than one piece of jewelry?

Certainly! You won't need to double your supply of milk to be able to create it either.  Sara will still only need 2 oz.
