In late 2020 we teamed up with Ashley from Hidden Petals, a beautiful jewellery designer from Melbourne who crafts all of her gorgeous work by hand in her studio.
Finally, in March 2021, we can share with you all this stunning Asteria necklace in which she created with love, to hold onto your most precious memories.
Each stone set within the Asteria is lovingly and carefully created by Melanie, our designer at Beyond The Willow Tree. Made from your very own materials such as milk, cremation ashes, hair, umbilical, placenta, and hair & milk combined.
This collaboration is limited, with only 5 pieces available.
Each pendant is created from 925 sterling silver and hangs from a delicate silver chain.
When making your order online, please specify in your notes which inclusions you would like included within your Asteria pendant, along with any flecks or shimmers you would like to add. If you cannot see this notes section at checkout, please email us after you have purchased and let us know. We are more than happy to add these notes for you!
*The photos featured on our website contain the ashes of a much-loved pet, against our onyx effect stone. Gold shimmer & opal flecks have also been added to this stone.

Please note that these chains are delicate and we advise to take great care of them, or upgrade to a thicker chain of your choice.
Milk is individual in colour as we are as people.
For this reason please note that your piece will not look like the photos on the website .... even they differ! We see milk that is as white as paper through to beautiful creamy yellow and even blue/pink/green tinges. Please note that your milk has nothing added to it to change its colour. We believe this is what makes each piece so special.
Your piece will not look like the next person's, nor will it look like the photos on our website (which all differ too).
Flecks and shimmers dance around and settle in their own way, a way we can not predict or change. We don’t see these as flaws or imperfections. We see them as unique and amazing just like the inclusions you send us.
