Hello! My name is Rachel. I’m a stay-at-home mom from Baltimore, Maryland. Welcome to Precious Mammaries.
I started having aspirations for jewelry designing while I was pregnant with my baby girl. I kept a sketch book next to me at all times. Thinking about starting my own line kept me busy and up late at night. I knew I wanted to use organic material, because I love the natural world. Little did I know that once my baby was born that I would transition to the use of breast milk.
Breastfeeding is a natural art form and skill that thankfully has resurfaced in recent times due to proper education and much research on the benefits of breastfeeding, from baby’s nutrition to social development. The bond I’ve experienced with my baby while breastfeeding is just incredible, an experience I know I will greatly miss once she weans herself from me.
This unique feeling of oneness with our babies by being their sole food source sadly doesn’t last forever. It’s my hope that these Precious Mammaries will stay with us with breast milk keepsakes made especially from our own milk. It will be something we can pass on to them as they grow to become parents themselves.
Other than that, I am a pretty laid back lady who likes pretty clothes and reading philosophy books. I am incredibly blessed to have a supportive husband and a beautiful baby girl.
Feel free to say HELLO anytime!
