Hi, everyone! My name is Gretchen Gatan and if you’re new here, welcome to Greta’s Junkyard! This is a platform where I like to write about my favorite things—mostly beauty, lifestyle, travel, home, and my experience as a first-time mom to a baby girl named Cambria, who recently turned a year old. If you’ve stumbled upon this article, you must be curious to know more about breastmilk jewelry.
Breastmilk Jewelry by Tender Foot Jewels
It’s been 13 months of exclusively breastfeeding Cambria (and direct latching at that!). Though it hasn’t been the easiest journey, I really wanted to commemorate the milestone. So I thought about ordering jewelry from Tender Foot Jewels made with my breastmilk. Luckily, I won their giveaway contest in collaboration with Momzilla PH last October 2022.
Cristina Stone Ring
The ring I won was the Cristina Stone Ring, which has such a simple yet timeless design. After filling up their forms at the Momzilla Fair, I sent about 60 ML of my breastmilk to Tender Foot Jewels last November 28 for them to turn into a precious stone. Though it took months to make, it was definitely worth the wait. I received the ring last January 21, which happens to be Cambria’s 13th month. And it truly is breathtaking!
A Precious Heirloom
I don’t think Cambria is going to wean anytime soon but when that bittersweet day comes, I know I have this beautiful Cristina Stone Ring to remind me of this season of our lives. And it’s another heirloom I look forward to passing on to her—with such a beautiful story behind it.
