Our Story

Welcome! My name is Holly Lara and I own and operate Tree of Life Breastmilk Jewelry! I grew up in Sampson County in North Carolina. When I was 26 and 32 weeks pregnant, I moved to Caldwell County in Texas with my husband to be closer to his family. 


Before making breastmilk jewelry, I worked as a postpartum/newborn nurse. I had made a few pieces while I was out on maternity leave and I was in love with the results!


During my last week of maternity leave (April 2020), my then 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer. I quickly decided to not return to work so that I could care for her during her treatment. She will be finished with all of her treatment and port removal surgery in January 2022. (Adeline just finished her last chemo June 1st 2021!!!!!!!)
