Inclusions (Color, Hair, Glitter,)
Inclusions (Color, Hair, Glitter,)
An inclusion is something that is added to the milk stone. Inclusions that I can set in most milk stones are
- Color (Glitter, Pigment)
- Encapsulated Placenta
- A piece of fabric
When you go to checkout, in your cart you will be able to add notes about what you have in mind. Want ombre, full color, a dot, a heart, hair on one side, hair in the shape of a heart? The possibilities are endless! You can also reach out to me on facebook www.facebook.com/milkykeepsakes or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am always open to making something unique! Lets chat!
Add color to your milk stone by adding pigment, glitter, or flecks. Color is a great way to customize your milk stones and make them unique to you! Every piece is different.
Glitter gives your milk stone a nice shimmer to go along with the color. You can add just a drop or two of glitter to give it a small pop of color, create an ombre look, or mix glitter in with the entire milk stone!
Chunky glitter is used to add a few dots here and there of color or to do a bit of a messy ombre look for bigger jewelry pieces. Want to know if you should go for glitter or chunky glitter? Ask me!
Pigment will give your milk stone a uniform pop of color throughout the entire stone (unless you ask for ombre or make a special request).
I can add baby hair to most milk stones! Lets chat and see what we can come up with.
Adding encapsulated placenta is a great way to make this keepsake even more sentimental. The placenta was your babies life line in the womb!
Piece of Fabric
Do you have a favorite baby blanket? A special piece of clothing or a piece of clothing from a loved one who maybe isn't here with us anymore? We can put a small piece of the fabric in a piece of jewelry for you. (It doesn't even have to be set in a milk stone, I can just set it in a resin stone!). The fabric should be about an inch long and 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide.

I offer a 12 month warranty of all pieces if something happens due to the making of the piece starting the day of purchase. Warranty does not cover shipping cost to or from. Turnaround time varies and you must contact me for a current estimated turnaround time. If you plan to wear your piece everyday, I highly recommend sticking with silver or plated white gold jewelry. While plated yellow or rose gold jewelry is absolutely gorgeous, these pieces are meant for occasional wear and the plating will not hold up for everyday wear. It doesn't matter who or where you buy a plated piece from, the rose and yellow gold coloring will fade if you were it everyday. It can happen in days, months, or even a year or two. This is not covered under warranty with me. Silver or plated white gold jewelry will not have this problem. None of the jewelry will not turn your skin green, black, or any weird color. The metal is solid .925 sterling silver unless stated otherwise and is very good quality metal. It is safe to wear everyday. The stones will hold up against everyday wear also, provided that you don't leave them outside, in a hot car, throw them in a pool or bathtub, or take them to the spa or something. Take care of your jewelry, these pieces are holding your precious inclusions. They are keepsakes and should be treated as such.

Can this piece hold ashes..hair.. etc..?
I can add whatever you want, into whatever piece you want. Ashes, formula, and soil work just the same as breastmilk so you are not limited to the piece(s) you can choose. For hair, fabric, flowers, etc I recommend choosing something with a bigger main stone and nothing like a stacking ring, so you can see your inclusions especially if you want it shaped any certain way or to see any particular pattern, lace, or texture. This is something we can talk about individually though for sure!
How much milk do you need?
Minimum 5mL or 1 teaspoon, 2 preferred.
How much ashes do you need?
1 teaspoon, I give back to anything extra
What do you do with the extra inclusions?
I keep milk for at least a year if there is anything extra that I preserved left over, all extra milk gets discarded. Any ashes or other inclusions get sent back to you.
