PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island woman who makes jewelry out of mothers' breast milk is hitting back at claims that her business is a scam.

Allicia Mogavero of MommyMilk Creations tells WPRO-AM (http://bit.ly/1LcEGRi ) that customers knew when they placed their orders that they could wait years for their keepsakes. Mogavero says she doesn't understand why the unhappy customers are making so much noise.

State Attorney General Peter Kilmartin says his office has received two new complaints against MommyMilk since Wednesday.

The office received one complaint in 2014, but it was closed once the complainant received her jewelry.

Some customers say they sent MommyMilk money and their breast milk up to two years ago and still haven't received the jewelry they were promised.

They say Mogavero isn't returning their calls and emails.
