Back in Victorian times, not only was common for family members to keep locks of hair from departed loved ones in lockets, sewn into journals and used to make jewellery to ease the grieving process and bring comfort - it was also common to find pet fur, feathers and other preserved inclusions, as beloved momentos.

Your petbabies can be alive when you make these, and we always advise that you plan ahead! 

At My Memory Beads not only are continuing this tradition, we're being awfully proud about our love for our beloved furry, feathery, scaly, shell-y family members.

    Your Milk and DNA inclusions go through various steps and processes to ensure that your memory bead will not experience rotting, molding or colour deterioration.  

    Here at My Memory Beads, we choose not bleach your milk, because through our techniques, we are able to bring out the natural glow and pigmentation of your milk, we only help to boost its natural colour with our chosen finishes. 

    Your precious DNA inclusions are also treated and preserved before encasing them in our House Blend of Resin that cannot be commercially bought.
