Jewelery maker documents custom orders for pieces made with the SEMEN of loved ones

A jewelery maker who creates pendants out of powdered semen has revealed she keeps samples in her fridge and used her husband’s deposits to hone her technique.

Sculptor Amanda Booth takes requests for creations that can incorporate the bodily fluid – but, of course, you have to provide your own sample.

The Canada-based artist documents her work on TikTok, where she has more than 188,300 followers – with one of her clips racking up more than 5.8 million views.

In a TikTok video which has now gone viral, Amanda showed the camera some semen she had converted into powder form and explained where her unusual concept came from.

She said: ‘So I put up a half a** joke post on Facebook because a long time ago somebody commented on one of my TikToks asking me if I’d ever incorporated…man juices…into a piece before.

‘My team thought it was hilarious – they came up with the term “j**** jewellery”.

‘Anyways, so, apparently, it’s something that people want and it is something that people have now ordered.’

She had a test run with a sample her husband ‘lovingly provided’, creating some beads for a bracelet, a pendant, and a ring.

Sharing the results, Amanda brandished some impressive, unassuming looking pieces – adding she needs one or two teaspoons of a sample to create the piece of jewellery.

Despite working with some unusual materials, also including breastmilk, Amanda said she ‘draws the line at faeces’.

Speaking about the ‘absolutely crazy’ experience of going viral and the attention her work has received, she said a kinky couple once asked her if she would be willing to work with urine.

‘We just requested that it should be a high water intake day if they are going to send in anything like that!’

Before going viral Amanda said she’d had around 30 paid orders for semen and ‘female liquids’ jewelery – a figure which has since shot up.

‘I’m pretty surprised that we nailed j**** jewelery on the first shot,’ she said in a TikTok last month. ‘The processing was easy, the coloring turned out great, it baked well.’

Unsurprisingly viewers of Amanda’s videos have a lot questions about her work, which she is happy to answer.

When asked if she ever worried about contracting a sexually-transmitted infection from a sample, she said the risk was minimal.

‘STIs and stuff like that only survive for a very short time period once they’re outside the body,’ she explained.

‘So if people are sending me samples, by the time they get to me, technically they wouldn’t be live anymore.

‘Also as long as we wear gloves and everything, they should be totally fine. And as long as we do our normal sterilization routine, there should be no problem.

‘Once it’s processed and it’s baked and sealed…there won’t be any cross contamination or any risk of that.’

She added the jewelery was ‘waterproof’ so it didn’t matter if any of the samples got wet.

Amanda also hit back at people who criticized her work and slammed the clients making the requests.

She said: ‘One thing that I really like about my business and about my art is that I generally don’t say no to most requests.

‘Because I want to be a safe place for my clients to be able to request whatever they want.’

‘…When someone first came to me with it, I didn’t really understand it. My first reaction was, “oh my god that’s gross”.

‘But then I sat with it for a little bit and I kind of realized…who am I to judge?

‘…I pride myself on being an artist that will try anything.’

In another clip this month, the artist admitted that she herself has faced a lot of judgment since unveiling the jewellery.

However, many have rallied behind the creator.

‘Personally, as long as it’s not harming anyone else and it brings joy to the person buying the piece from you that’s what matters,’ one user said in a comment.

Another penned: ‘Super cool that it can be done! Definitely a curiosity situation. Which brings up the next one, if not already asked. What about lady samples?’

Elsewhere, a third added: ‘I didn’t think it was gross, my first thought was like: huh ..didn’t know that it would powder…interesting! Keep up the good work!’

Amanda she explained initially started making jewelery as a form of therapy and began to experiment with incorporating ashes after a friend’s child lost their life.

She said: ‘My whole business started by happenstance. I got into making earrings and eventually working with clay as a major therapy for myself.

‘Last year in September, I had a friend who tragically lost her son and asked if I could make memorial jewelery for her out of his ashes.

‘I was super nervous but I couldn’t say no. When I posted about it, I started getting more memorial requests for people who were grieving their lost loved ones and pets.

‘Another friend figured if I could do that then I could do breastmilk and requested I try it, so I researched and experimented and eventually figured it out.’

Amanda told Vice she needs to work quickly with the semen, before the smell becomes overbearing.

‘Fresh samples are one thing, but when they’ve been in the mail for a little bit, I mean…it smells like semen, you know what I mean?’ she said.

She added: ‘We process them at the end of the day, otherwise we’re sitting in the smell all day and it’s just…we did it in the morning one day and it was just like, “No, I’m never doing that again”.’

Amanda told the outlet that most of her customers are based in the US, and that she asks for people to seal the sample in a container and double-bag it.
