Make a Wish Giveaway- Hollyday Designs

 CLOSED
Winner- #7 Andrea

I have a new favorite piece of jewelry that is so creative and so different from anything I have ever seen before. Holly at Hollyday Designs can use your breastmilk to create a unique, truly one-of-a-kind keepsake that you can have always to remind you of one of the most sacred and cherished moments in your life.

I had a hard time breastfeeding my first two daughters but with my youngest I have been nursing her for over 8 months now with no sign of slowing down. So I was so honored and excited to learn Holly was going to allow me to review one of her pendants. I chose the hollow heart pendant:


The process was very simple. I expressed milk into a Ziploc bag, double bagged it, taped it (no leaks!) and sent it to her. I didn't even have to put it on ice. About 2 weeks later my pendant arrived in the mail!

When it arrived I just kept running my fingers over it. It looks like glass but is surprisingly lightweight. I put it on a favorite chain and the coolest part is that the resin (glass-like part of the pendant) will show my skin and the white of the heart stands out making it look like there is a free-floating heart on my chest. I just LOVE it! Zoë loves it, too, and often plays with it.


The very best part is that I will always have this piece, always have a part of this amazing experience with my daughter. I know that when I have more babies I'll be knocking on Holly's door to have more pendants made.

Holly doesn't just create breastmilk pendants. She also has a few wonderful hand-stamped items, stitch markers, bookmarks, soaps and so much more!


For more information on the breastmilk pendants please check Hollyday Designs' blog!
