How do I get a keepsake made?

Ashes: place a quarter of a teaspoon amount into a double zip lock bag and then in a padded envelope

Breast milk: use a syringe to measure no more than 10 ml of milk and place in a double zip lock bag and then in a padded envelope envelope

Locks of hair – place a tiny amount of hair in a small zip lock bag and then in an envelope

Note: any unused inclusions and preserved breastmilk will be returned to you with your keepsake.

3. Once I pick up the parcel from the PO BOX, I will let you know that it has arrived.

Can I wear my resin keepsake jewellery 24/7?

The resin stones I make are hardwearing but there is something about wearing your pieces 24/7 that is not ok with any kind of jewellery unfortunately. Anyone, any stones including the biggest jeweller in the world recommend against 24/7 wear. Additionally the resin stones need special care like the pearls. Which means avoiding chemicals, exposure to sunlight for very long times and and avoiding water exposure constantly. You shouldn’t sleep with any jewellery if you want it to last forever. Genuine diamonds can chip after wearing for years and claws break in 10000$ rings or $500 ring from any jewellers if you don’t care for your precious pieces. So I can’t tell you yes, be tough on your pieces 24/7

I do make genuine rubies and sapphires with hair (from our Mevisto collection) and these have high resistance to heavy wear like diamonds but ultimately you still have to care for them. I’m sorry if this isn’t the answer you are looking for.

  1. Hi Nicoleta
    I’d love a ring made with some ashes from my Golden Retriever Harry. How much in weight do you need to make a ring as I don’t want to send you the whole lot as there is quite a bit. I’d also like a quote also?

    1. Hi Sue, I only need a quarter of a teaspoon. Anything left that I don’t use gets sent back to you. You can have a look on my jewellery category (link on the home page here on my website) or if you don’t see a design you like? Feel free to email me for a custom design. Nicoleta xx
