Our breastmilk inclusions DO NOT DISCOLOUR
Sadly, many of us had fallen victim to discolouring milk bead jewellery and in my own opinion, it all has to do with the milk preparation process. Unfortunately, some jewellery makers experience bad luck insofar as milk bead discolouring, but the positive side is that discolouration usually starts as early as one month and gets progressively worse. By month three it would start to turn brown. In some instances, the discolouration process only becomes evident after 6 months or more. With such a unique product, there are no scientific studies to refer to.
We have been actively marketing our products since November 2013 (even though we've been in existence for much longer than that) and every milk inclusion we've made has remained the same colour as the day it was made. Furthermore, none of our customers have complained about discolouration and test creations we have are still the same colour as the day they were made. The same winning formula has been used since before we started marketing our products. As a further assurance, and effective 01 January 2017, we store all milk for 6 months after an order is complete!
We would love to guarantee our milk inclusions, but we are of the opinion that it is irresponsible to guarantee something that can only be tested by time...years, not months. Breastmilk jewellery is such a new innovation, that no one knows how it will look after 10, 20 or even 50 years.
On our workshop table is a tub with all left over milk inclusions we've made since inception. We continually add to the batch and regularly monitor its appearance. All milk inclusions remain odour free and the same colour as it was on the day of creation.
Breast milk inclusions are odour free and it is physically impossible for the milk to separate, evaporate or to emit a smell. If any odour is detected in your purchase, that would be an indication that the resin has reacted to something in its environment, not the milk.
At the end of the 6 months, you have the an opportunity for another purchase using your stored breastmilk with us, before your milk is discarded.
Alternatively, for a minimal cost, we can return your breastmilk to you.
