DNA Keepsake Jewelry

IMG_0952

In January, I placed an order with Sacred Legacy Arts. I ordered 4 beautiful pieces of artwork (aka DNA keepsake jewelry). I ordered a beautiful European bead that holds my breastmilk and a few strands of my daughter’s hair, a unique DNA crystal necklace, a Tree of Life necklace from Maid in the Woods (cabochon from Sacred Legacy Arts), and a 14k white gold ring. All of the items I ordered contain my breastmilk.

IMG_0942Sacred Legacy Arts specializes in preserving DNA keepsakes as a beautiful work of art in the form of jewelry. Kelly from Sacred Legacy Arts can preserve breastmilk, hair, umbilical cord, placenta, ashes, flowers, a piece of cloth (from a wedding dress or veil), and much more into jewelry. It is amazing. The process includes preserving the keepsake in jewelry-grade resin and then placing the keepsake in a ring, necklace, European bead, earrings, etc. Kelly from Sacred Legacy Arts has truly found a beautiful and unique way of preserving precious memories into a wearable form of art.

IMG_0900What is really cool about the process of preserving the DNA keepsake is that it doesn’t have to be “plain”. Sacred Legacy Arts has many flecks, shimmers, and tints to add to the DNA keepsakes. For the ring and European bead, I asked for the fairy milk blend, which looks like how it sounds (extremely magical). The keepsakes are a beautiful milky-pink with pink and iridescent flecks and shimmer. They are absolutely beautiful and I love how they turned out! For the tree of life necklace, I asked for the gold shimmer, which really hones in on the yellow color of breastmilk. Lastly, for the DNA crystal necklace, I asked for the milky opal look, which contains iridescent flecks and really show cases the brightness of breastmilk. Everyone’s breastmilk is different, so every DNA keepsake will look different. Keep that in mind if you decided to order from Sacred Legacy Arts. Plus, every DNA keepsake will be different since they are all handmade. This definitely makes each piece a work of art!

IMG_0918Shop updates are at the beginning of every month. I believe the July shop update was on the 3rd. There are still a few pieces that are available, but usually the most popular pieces sell out within seconds. The first time I tried to order the European bead, I added the bead to my cart immediately as the shop update went live. I went to checkout and after I typed in all of my card and shipping information the bead was already sold out! I type pretty fast too! As a word of advice, it is crucial to be ready to place your order when the shop updates go live. No pondering or deciding which fleck or shimmer to include. All of this needs to be decided before the shop update so you can quickly checkout and snag the pieces you want!

Sacred Legacy Arts began in 2014 with the vision to create tiny time capsules of wearable art for families to preserve their most cherished memories in a tangible, sensory experience.  Instead of tucking mementos into little boxes that are rarely seen, they wanted to find a way to take those precious memories and turn them into beautiful works of art that could be worn and treasured. Each DNA keepsake is carefully handcrafted and it shows. Every item I ordered is so beautiful and unique. I can tell that so much care, thought, and passion went into making them. I’m so glad that Sacred Legacy Arts was created. I will forever treasure the works of art Kelly created using my breastmilk and my daughter’s hair. I will definitely order from Sacred Legacy Arts again in the future! THANK YOU KELLY AND THE SACRED LEGACY ARTS TEAM!

I also wanted to give a shout out to Maid in the Woods and Anueva Jewelry. Doreen from Maid in the Woods handcrafts all of her jewelry. Unfortunately, the tree of life cabochon from Sacred Legacy Arts was discontinued, but you can still order the tree of life necklace from Doreen. She now works with another DNA keepsake artist for the cabochon that is included in the beautiful tree of life wirework necklace. She has amazing pieces and I’m so happy to have a tree of life necklace from Maid in the Woods. Also wanted to mention that her packaging is AMAZING. I was blown away about how much thought and passion went into the packaging. Thank you, Doreen! Anueva Jewelry created the ring my DNA keepsake was placed into. The empress ring is also no longer available on Sacred Legacy Arts, but there are many other beautiful pieces available from Anueva Jewelry on Sacred Legacy Arts. Anueva Jewelry specializes in handmade, eco-friendly, nature inspired jewelry. I love all of her works of art. Thank you Jennifer from Anueva Jewelry!
