Woman makes £242K a year by selling ‘j*zzy jewellery’ made with real semen

A woman makes more than £240,000 a year selling bespoke jewellery made from bodily fluids, including semen.
Amanda Booth, 33, was already making jewellery, including earrings and necklaces, using breastmilk and ashes, but launched Jizzy Jewellery in August last year - and it’s gone from strength to strength.
You can see a SFW video of the process here:
The pieces are made by drying out semen, turning it into a powder, and mixing it with clay to create 'pearls' - and they sell for between CA $110 (£66) and CA $300 (£181). Oh and in case you were wondering, customers must provide their own samples as part of the process.
Explaining how the rather unusual idea came about, Amanda, from Ontario in Canada, said: "I'd been working with sentimental materials since about October 2021.
"I started working with ashes and breast milk because I had a friend whose son died and then another friend asked if I could do breast milk and I had to figure out how to turn it into powder.
"I started sharing them on social media and it just blew up.
"We went from 10 to 20 orders to hundreds of orders and my husband had to quit his job to help with orders.
"Almost everything I do comes from people requesting and suggesting things and someone commented on TikTok asking if I'd ever incorporated 'jizz' into my work.
"I initially took offence to it and thought 'why would you ask that?', but then I decided to run with it and created a joke marketing campaign with the idea on Facebook.
"It was just a joke at first but then I started getting serious requests for it and and I sat back and I thought, 'This is gross and I wouldn’t do it for myself, but who I am to judge if people want it?'
"I tried it out with my husband's sample first and it worked, so I took on orders."
Amanda says that the items can be an ideal gift ‘marking your fertility journey, getting a vasectomy gift, surprising your partner or just want to be that much closer’.
She also stresses that many people misunderstand the concept, and insists it's not just a sexual thing.
Amanda said: "We get a lot of women who convince their partners to order it for them and also a lot of guys who just want it as a display piece sometimes.
"We had a trans woman who was having bottom surgery and wanted it for herself to commemorate that part of her journey.
"There was one about a woman whose husband had passed and the only thing she had left of him was a condom in the garage so she had something made for him.
"We do female samples too and sometimes we get mixed samples.
"I had a lesbian couple who got a sperm donor and breast milk after they had the baby and mixed that together.
"A lot of people think it’s just a kink and a sexual thing, myself included at the start, but in reality there are so many beautiful stories out there.
"I think a lot of people just misunderstand it I guess."
