Milk - I need about an 10ml to easily work with and that gives me enough for multiple pieces and some wiggle room in case of leaking into the next bag during shipping. If you are short on supply and need to send less, I can work with a 5ml. If you are sending less than an 10ml, please send in a bottle with the lid on tight and be sure to still double bag the bottle. I do not ever send back milk, bottles or any packaging, so don't send any packaging that means a lot to you.
For an 10ml or more- ALWAYS triple bag your milk in GOOD QUALITY BREAST MILK BAGS, make sure each bag is zipped tight and ship in a padded mailer or box. The quality of the bags is very important in terms of leaking during shipping. Again, double check that all bag seals are correctly and tightly sealed.
ALWAYS label the outside bag with your name. Do not label the inner bags in case they leak. The ink may contaminate the rest of the milk if the inside bags are labeled, turning the milk dark. If milk leaks into the other bags and there is no writing on the inside, I can still use the leaked milk.
DO NOT add any tissue, paper towels, newspaper or anything else absorbent to the milk bags. If milk leaks into the bags and you have added something absorbent, I cannot recover the leaked milk.
Frozen or fresh milk will work just the same. Your milk does not need to stay cold during shipping. It will stay fresh enough to be used for jewelry for a very long time.
Any unused milk will not be returned to you, but saved here in case you want to order again in the future or need repair.
Ashes - Send approximately 1/4tsp of ashes in a bag. No need to triple bag. Just make sure the bag is sealed tight without any ashes stuck in the seal. This will be enough for 1-2 pieces. Any unused ashes will be shipped back to you with your final product.
Label the bag with your name
Hair - Send about a 2-3cm long lock of hair per piece of jewelry. Please place hair in a small piece of foil and fold the foil to make a small packet. If you do not have foil, use a piece of paper. This helps to keep the hair together. Using toilet paper, paper towel can make the hair fuzzy and harder to set. PLEASE DO NOT TAPE THE HAIR. It is extremely hard to get hair off of tape without damage to the hair. Place the folded foil in a ziplock bag that is labeled with your name. Leftovers will not be sent back unless requested in your order notes, email or a note within the package.
Label the bag with your name.
