The bond between mother and child is one of the strongest there is, and our children are linked to us by an invisible cord, one that it is almost impossible to break. We at Artemis, wanted to help celebrate and encapsulate the bond of motherhood, and have developed "MamaMilk-GemTM", a fusion of breastmilk preserved forever, and bonded to a natural precious gemstone.
We can offer our MamaMilk-GemTM bonded to rock crystal quartz, sapphire and even moonstone. We send guides on how you collect materials to you in your pack when you order. You can see our jewellery at our high street shop

How much milk do you need? We don't need much at all, around 30ml will be enough.
Is it OK to mix breast milk with other materials? Yes, samples can be mixed from any number of sources - its probably best if you send them separately and we mix them - you can mix types of samples too (ashes/hair, breast milk/hair, etc)
Can everything have the same colour tints? Ashes, breast milk, soil and sand all take up the tints similarly. Hair, flowers and fabric are best left natural unless they are to be mixed with a material that takes up the tint
What happens to the material you don't use? We return all unused material(s) to you with your finished jewellery. The only exception is breast milk due to it's perishable nature
Can you take my sample? We would be pleased to help take ash samples, but you would have to travel to our premises or one of our partner's premises. Other samples you would need to take yourself. Breast milk needs our special collection pack for you to do in the comfort of your home.
How do I get my materials to you? If you can't visit us, we send you a pack which has all the information you need to collect samples and return them correctly to us in compliance with the couriers terms and conditions. This will safeguard your precious materials.
I live far away, what happens if I don't bring my materials when I visit you? That's no problem, if you decide to purchase while you are with us, we will give you one of our packs so you can send us your sample(s)

Every milk sample is different, due to its nutritional complexity. This means that whilst some MamaMilk-Gems are white, others will be creamy or even yellow - there is no normal colour. Choose to have your MamaMilk-GemTM in its natural state or tinted with one of our 12 signature colours - whichever you choose, you know your precious cargo is encapsulated just for you, and only for you in your MamaMilk-GemTM.
Additionally we can incorporate an engraving on most of our jewellery, and you might choose to personalize your piece with a sentiment, name, a special word or phrase. See our engraving page for more information.

We use MamaMilk-GemTM Rock Crystal in all our pendants and earrings as standard. Our rings and charms use MamaMilk-GemTM White Sapphire.
Rock Crystal Quartz is said to be crystal whose features can be more closely connected to the spiritual worlds than any other. A talisman of our most ancient ancestors, it is said that rock crystal emboldens its wearer, protects from bad dreams, removes stress, reduces headache and fever, helps to treat insomnia, simply place a piece of Rock Crystal under your pillow. Drinking from a crystal cup is said to protect from toothache. Rock Crystal also is said to help respiratory tract diseases in crystal healing therapies. Whatever the case for its alleged spiritual and healing properties, we use natural rock crystal to make Milk-Gem Rock Crystal for its durability, adaptability and beauty in your pendant.
White Sapphire is a precious stone and one of the hardest stones used in jewellery. We use it in jewellery when the risk of damage is high, such as with rings and charms on bracelets. Sapphires were beleived to be the most powerful stones such that, in Greek and Roman legends, they thought the world was "set" on a giant blue sapphire and its reflection painted the sky blue. As it is a precious stone it carries a premium which is why we use lab grown white sapphire as standard, which is exactly the same as natural sapphire in composition and properties, but at an affordable cost. We can source natural sapphire and quote should you want us to. To make our rings and charms suitable for everyday wear, we use Milk-Gem White Sapphire
Moonstone has a property which catches the light and casuses a schiller to appear on the surface called adularescence. This scattering of the light is reminiscent of moonbeams through a veil of clouds in dusky hues of blue, a phenomenon that led some cultures to believe the stone could capture moonlight within it depths. Associated with good luck and future vision, we use our Milk-Gem Moonstone in pendants to partially see your ashes or other meterial captured in the beautiful schiller of cloudy moonstones. We can also use them in rings which you don't weaar every day so your special occasions are even more special. Milk-Gem-Moonstone is available now by special request
What is Phoenix-GemTM. We have developed a way of bonding the materials to metals too and some of our pendants can accept our Phoenix-Gem insets within them. At the moment we only have three pendants, our 20mm Classic Round, Portrait Oval and Cameo Oval pendants that we can inset Phoenix-Gem into, but we are working on other pieces specifically for Phoenix-Gem.
With Phoenix-Gem insets, you can choose a pattern or picture which allows you to partially see the bonded material, say cremation ashes or milk, both of which can still be tinted to the colours we have shown above. This give the effect of a picture in a frame in the pendant. Below is a rotating image of our oval pendants inset with Phoenix-Gem.
