Turning Mother’s Liquid Gold Into Beautiful Keepsakes
What is breast milk jewelry?
It is jewelry that is very special, it commemorates the nursing journey and serves as a reminder of the selfless gift. The mother’s own milk (or donor’s milk) is preserved in resin. The breast milk is no longer in liquid form when the jewelry is complete.
How much breast milk is required?
About 1-1.5 ounces of milk for about 2-3 pieces. More than 3 pieces, about 2-2.5 ounces is needed. The milk can be previously frozen or considered out of date.
How long does the process take for mothers to receive their jewelry?
It depends on how many orders I have at the time, on average 6-8 weeks once the breast milk is received.
Will all items received look just like the pictures?
No, every mamma is unique and the jewelry will reflect that. No two mother’s breast milk is the same. There will be many variations especially in color. Many of my friends joke telling me I produce “skim milk” because it’s so light in color, but several moms produce what my nursing mother’s friends call “butter” which can be vary from bright white to very yellow in color.
How do the mothers know it’s their breast milk in the jewelry?
Although there is no way to “prove” your milk was used, as a nursing mother I know the importance and symbolism of these items. As a pharmacist, my precision and exactness is essential; one mistake in filling someone’s prescription could result in serious adverse reactions or even death. I take the responsibility of handling your milk as seriously as I do in my professional career.

Ann Marie Sharoupim is the creator of Mamma’s Liquid Love. She has 2 beautiful daughters, Rebecca and Gabriella. With her first she struggled tremendously with nursing. Unfortunately, she was unable to produce enough milk for second daughter and used donor milk. As a symbol of her appreciation to her generous donor, she created a pendant for her. The gratitude and joy her donor showed after receiving the pendant inspired her to create Mamma’s Liquid Love.
