There’s a jeweller from Quebec that makes jewelry out of breast milk.
Karine Lajoie discovered breast milk jewelry about a year ago from designers in Australia & the U.S and now she can make earrings, necklaces and rings out of breast milk. She told Global News,
“My work is to allow breastfeeding women to keep a tangible keepsake of the bond created during breastfeeding. Every story is unique as my jewelry and women thank me because often the end of breastfeeding represents a mourning to make and this jewel allows them to complete the loop.”
So how does this work? Karine explains that the breast milk goes through a process of freezing and “preservation and then it’s worked with resin.” This whole process takes about a week because it also has to dry before you can actually mold it into a ring, necklace or set of earrings.
