There’s saving some for later… and then there’s saving some for later in a more ‘unique’ way.
Mogavero ‘plasticises’ breast milk samples, moulds them into miniature shapes such as hearts, moons, stars or leaves and then turns the pieces into keepsake jewellery including pendants and bracelets. Names, various coloured backgrounds and even locks of hair can be added to your truly unique piece.
Buyers are instructed to send two tablespoons of their milk in a zip-lock bag to Mommy Milk Creations, after which the milk goes through a complex preservation process. No two pieces are ever the same – the colour and fat content of breast milk varies considerably between women, ranging from bluish-white to creamy yellow.
Mommy Milk Creations are priced from US$64. Orders take ten weeks to complete and can be shipped internationally.
Over to you, Babyologists – would you wear your own breast milk on a pendant?
