Should I Choose Milk Couture Co. to Create My Keepsake/Breastmilk Jewelry?
I realize there are many companies out there who specialize keepsake jewelry and I have the utmost respect for all of them. You should always decide which company is right for you and if Milk Couture Co. isn't the best fit, that is ok!
I just wanted to write a little bit about our core values, mission and what sets us apart as a company so you can get a better idea of if we align with yours!
First and foremost, Milk Couture Co. is for all mamas. Whether you breastfed, formula fed, pumped, have a baby on earth or in heaven, we would love to handcraft a special piece of jewelry for you to cherish forever! I breastfed my first baby for a year. I was only able to breastfeed my second baby for 5 months exclusively, then I exclusively pumped until he was 7 months, and after my supply dropped significantly, I formula fed. Every motherhood journey is so beautifully unique and I want our pieces to reflect that. Whether you envision a keepsake jewelry piece made from breastmilk, formula, ash, dried flowers or anything else special to you - I want to make a one-of-a-kind piece to represent your story. The word "couture" actually means one-of-a-kind and designed to someone's specific requirements. I want you to absolutely LOVE your custom couture jewelry piece.
Making our jewelry accessible and offering a variety of options for mamas on all budgets is also extremely important to me. All of our pieces are made from sterling silver or solid 18k gold, so they are heirloom quality and made to last.
Finally, I want this company to make a difference in the lives of women going through the most unthinkable loss. After suffering immense grief after losing my first baby, what helped me the most was knowing that I wasn't alone and talking through it with friends. Loving support was everything to me in my darkest hours. That is why I am committed to giving a portion of all of our profits to Gathering Hope, a nonprofit organization that gives resources, support and community to mamas who have suffered miscarriage or infant loss.
I would be so honored to work with you and create a wearable piece of art out of your precious memories that you'll hold dear for generations to come.
