Commemorating my 10+ years of breastfeeding...ideas?

It appears that after 10 1/2 years of breastfeeding (three children, tandem nursing twice), my nursing era is coming to an end. My youngest, "Little Bit," is still nursing for a few minutes at night, but that is about it. I'm guessing she will wean within this year. I had planned on getting a breastmilk pendant made, but sadly, my milk has suddenly dried up.

I still want to do something tangible (like jewelry or a figurine/wall art) that will commemorate all the time, energy and love that I spent nurturing my children by breastfeeding. I'm not sure I could find something like this, but if I could later separate it (like a pendant with three parts, etc) to give my children when they are grown, it would be awesome.

So, I'm here to ask you ladies for ideas and links. I thought that perhaps if I had some help, I could find something that would be perfect.

TIA!

If you find something that can be separated, I want to know. I think it would be great to give my little ones something when they're grown.

Wow 10 years, that is amazing! Maybe a necklace with separate charms with their initials on it?

Have you heard of www.familytreeglass.com? They have beautiful handmade glass breastfeeding pendants and you can customize the colors. I have one and I love it!

I love the pendants. I haven't really seen anything else that is nearly as beautiful. I'm seriously considering getting one.

Yes they are sooo gorgeous! Mine is in earthy swirl with a white baby. I love it! Mine was to commemorate my fight against IGT. I finally decided to stop calling it a failure and just celebrate that I did everything I could. Brooke even customized small boobs on my pendant for me.
