Styling Guide


Here you will find specific information regarding all the styling options for your own personalized DNA design! Before settling on your final design selections, please see the disclaimer below:

The predominant determining factor in the final outcome of your keepsake stone is the color, texture and other unique properties of the inclusion that is sent in. The photos throughout the website and our social media pages are basic examples of the design style, and we are unable to guarantee any specific outcome. Please allow for variations in the final presentation of your individual piece.

All styling choices are final once your order has been placed, so please consider your decisions carefully. Contact us anytime before placing your order to discuss design specifics at sacredlegacyarts@gmail.com


Breastmilk Design Options

Pure Breastmilk

  • If no styling options are selected, a pure breastmilk stone will be professionally cast using only your own breastmilk, honoring it’s natural color. Multiple breastmilk samples can be mixed and placed in a single design.

  • Please note that color, depth and size of the setting have a significant impact on the final outcome of the DNA stone. Color variation due to bezel depth and metal selection are normal and to be expected. The Oval Pendant and Coronation Oval & Crown photos below show the same milk and styling options presenting very differently based on the setting.

Pearl Shimmer

  • Pearl Shimmer can be added by request. It has cool, silvery tones and adds sparkle while honoring the element's natural colors.

Moonstone Shimmer

  • Moonstone Shimmer is available for use with breastmilk designs only, and cannot be used with the clear flecks. It whitens and brightens milk, and decreases yellow tones. It has a swirling mother-of-pearl effect.

Clear Flecks

  • Clear Flecks are available for use in breastmilk designs to create our “milky opal” effect. They have an iridescent rainbow effect in the light. Please note that note all designs can accommodate flecks, which will be noted in the listing.

Umbilical Inclusion Design Options

  • By default, umbilical inclusion stones will be created without any styling options. If no styling options are chosen, a pure umbilical inclusion stone will be created. Multiple umbi samples can be mixed placed in a single design.

  • Pearl shimmer can be added by request. It has cool, silvery tones and adds sparkle while honoring the element's natural colors.

  • Our Galaxy Effect styling flecks can be added by request. They offer a darker-toned rainbow effect, similar to the natural dark colors in our galaxy. Please note that not all designs can accommodate flecks, which will be noted in the listing.

Cremation Ash Design Options

Hair-Only Design Options

  • By default, hair-only pieces will be set into a background of our clear flecks, which we have found is the most universally pleasing option for all hair inclusions. Multiple hair samples can be placed in a single design.

  • Pearl shimmer can also be added by request. It has cool, silvery tones and adds sparkle while honoring the element's natural colors.

  • Please note that variable visibility depending on hair color as well as placement of the hair is largely out of our control. Most factors are determined by length, style, and texture of the hair as well as the design style and size of the stone.

  • Hair will become a slightly deeper color, similar to when it becomes wet, when encased in jewelry versus when "dry".

  • By default all inclusions will be created without any additional styling options.

  • Pearl shimmer can be added by request. It has cool, silvery tones and adds sparkle while honoring the element's natural colors.

  • Other inclusions include but are not limited to:

    • encapsulated placenta

    • flowers: please note that dried flowers must often be broken down and crushed and can rarely be left whole - in some cases flowers may require powdering

    • soil or sand

An Important Note About Handmade Jewelry:

 

Every piece of jewelry is made by hand and made individually. This means that no two pieces will ever be the same.  Textures, colors, amounts used, and other factors all go in to how each individual piece turns out.  The photos on the website are basic examples of the design style and there is no guarantee that your piece will look identical. Please allow for variances in how your pieces look.

By ordering through Sacred Legacy Arts you have chosen to have a handmade piece and you may see evidence of that in your jewelry. Common variations in handmade DNA resin jewelry include small air bubbles, molding lines and seams, variations in placements, and evidence of hand shaping and molding parts of your jewelry. Very rarely is there uniform "perfection" in handmade resin work, and to invest in SLA jewelry is to invest in handmade and all the variations that may come with your piece.
