Alison Hawthorn, a British mother named Alison Hawthorn of four, needed something to occupy her time during her quarantine, so she did what any bored parent would do: she created a jewelry line out of breast milk.
Hawthorn began her company in her hometown of Wirral, England, during the lockdown last year.
After experimenting with resin, she came up with the idea, and now women send Hawthorn their breastmilk, which she transforms into necklaces, rings, earrings, and pendants.
She is 30 years old.
How Alison Hawthorn Makes Jewelry With Breast Milk?
The entrepreneur recently appeared on the UK’s “This Morning,” where she announced that she plans to expand her collection to include umbilical cords. She told the hosts of the chat show that she was going nuts under quarantine and needed to remain active.
Hawthorn said, “I felt like I was losing my mind, I was going crazy. It was just kids and nappies day in morning and night, and I said to Dan, my partner, ‘I need to do something for myself,’ ”.
Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the hosts, were given an explanation by her. She said, “I decided that my resolution for the brand new year would be to make jewelery with resin. I started making things like key rings,”
She added, “This whole time, I breastfed my twins for the first year, and as we approached the year, I wanted something to celebrate our feeding journey.”
She continued, “I had the breastmilk, I had the resin and I knew it could be done, so I just researched and researched, and practiced. People send their breastmilk to me in the post. It’s actually quite resilient; although it wouldn’t be suitable to be eaten after this time out of the fridge, it’s absolutely fine to go into the resin.”
Hawthorn uses only around one-third of an ounce (10 milliliters) of milk to form the neckpieces, which she then pours out using a double boiling procedure. She adds preservation powder once it’s heated and sets it aside to dry.
When the powder is dried, it becomes flaky, and she grinds it until it becomes a powder. She also said that she has created keepsakes from hair, baby teeth, pet hair, and ashes.
