(WIAT) — An artist in Texas who also happens to be a mom has come up with a very personal keep-sake.

She’s developed a method for culturing pearls out of breast milk.

Bridgette Boudreaux takes real breast milk, adds preservatives and then lets it sit in a refrigerator.

Within a week, the milk becomes a solid that you can mold into any shape you want.

From there you can add designs, color, even sparkles.

A top coat resin hardens and protects the precious milk.

Boudreaux debuted her breast milk pearls in a small Facebook group for mothers. She said they responded very well, and the orders started pouring in.
