GIVEAWAY + Coupon Code for Hollyday Designs

Earlier this week when I wrote about my wonderful experience designing a custom necklace made with breast milk beads, I must admit I was a little wary. Would people think I was a total freak for turning my breast milk into jewelry I can wear (and treasure) forever?

Turns out, I received only favorable comments. My readers think it is a fun and special way to remember an important time in a mother’s life! My necklace is subtle and dainty – I wear it to pick up the kids from school…and I wear it to special events like my brother’s wedding earlier this month!

If you would like a hand crafted piece of custom made jewelry from Hollyday Designs, here is a great chance to do so at a nice savings. Holly has generously offered a 15% discount for all Homemade Mothering readers who use promo code HOMEMADEMOTHERING now through June 19.

But, enter now for a chance to win a $75 gift card good for any custom order with Holly. She makes sentimental jewelry in so many beautiful designs, and not all of it needs breast milk! Check out her site at

    Right now, my favorite piece is a necklace my mom had made for me with all our birthstones- me, my husband, and our 2 kids. I adore it, and love personal family jewelry! I would love to try some of these creations!

  2. Rebecca says:

    I may have to have another baby just so I can get one of these made! My husband ordered me a sweet necklace with our three girls names on it for Mother’s Day last year and it’s my favorite thing ever!

    After nursing my older daughter till 3.5 yo and currently nursing my twin boys (2 years old) I can’t think of anything more special, more meaningful, than a necklace or bracelet commemorating our shared journey!!!

  4. Hannah says:

    In response to your question: absolute favorite is probably my wedding band for sentimental value, but for fun … probably my multi-strand paper bead necklace!

    My favorite piece is my mom’s wedding ring. I don’t really wear jewelry, but I love the idea of having a bead of milk for each of my children.

  8. Megan E says:

    My first baby was born in April and I just came across this jewelry. It’s beautiful! Now I just have to decide what I want to order!

  9. Megan E says:

    Right now my favorite piece of jewelry besides my wedding ring is a turtle pendant I received as a gift.

  10. Christina says:

    I love my wedding rings and I recently got a mother/son pandora charm. Your necklace is a beautiful idea and I’d love to get one. I’m wondering if you can add beads to the necklace or not? Right now I have a baby boy but may have another baby in future 🙂

  11. Rachel says:

    Such a wonderful idea! I always wanted to know what bm jewelry looks like. Thanks for suggesting this company!

  12. Brandy says:

    My wedding rings!

  13. Brandie says:

    I have breastfed five children and I have never gotten any momentos from my time so I would love to have once of these gorgeous pieces!

  14. Emily says:

    pretty cool and unique idea.

  15. Carey Robin says:

    my favorite is a silver bracelet with wild horses carved on it

  16. Monique says:

    I saw the bm jewelry a few months ago and I’ve been wanting to get one with my first daughter name in it! Such a cute idea

  17. kristen l says:

    My simple wedding band

  18. Brittany says:

    The necklace my husband bought when I got pregnant. It shows two tiny footprints and says “babies outgrow everything except a mother’s heart”

  19. Becky Gibbs says:

    My favorite piece of jewelry is my wedding band followed by a necklace that was my great aunt’s.

  20. Heidi Weber says:

    Right now my favorite is my wedding ring.

  21. Katie Eavenson says:

    Been looking for something just like this to remember nursing my 3 sweet babies. Love it!!!

    • Katie Eavenson says:

      My favorite jewelry are ones with my babies names on them. Love wearing them close to my heart 🙂

  22. My almost-2yo son and I had quite the nursing journey – tongue ties, thrush, over-supply and overactive letdown, and lots of other bumps in the road – but we stuck it out and with the help of two WONDERFUL IBCLCs are still nursing strong! I can think of nothing better to commemorate our shared journey than a sweet, delicate piece of jewelry to treasure and memorialize these fleeting moments in time – how neat!!

    My favorite piece of jewelry is my engagement ring and wedding band, but if I get a milk bead, I just might have a new favorite… 😉

  23. Katie says:

    I am torn between my favorite items of the breastmilk initial charm and the baby prints with the foot and hand. Sooo cute! I’m a first time mom and going on 8 months of BF. Love my little buddy and the quiet time we get to hang out with each other!

  24. Valerie says:

    This is such a wonderful idea! I’m eagerly anticipating the piece of breast milk jewelry I ordered to honor the breastfeeding relationship with my 12 month old. My favorite piece of jewelry is a pendant with my son’s name stamped in it and an emerald bead for his birth month. My SIL gifted it to me when I was in the hospital after giving birth. I’m positive I’ll treasure my breast milk pendant just the same. 🙂

  25. Caitie says:

    My favorite piece of jewelry is my great great aunt Bernice’s gold chain. Jewelry is the best when it has sentimental meaning- which is why I love the milk necklace!

  26. Tori S. says:

    love this! I need to order one – hope I win the giveaway!
