Placenta or umbilical cord charm bead for Chamilia and Pandora bracelets. Our babies are only small for a moment. They gain their independence so quickly starting from when the umbilical cord is cut separating them from your shared placenta. We will cast a tiny bit of your baby’s cord stump or dried placenta powder into an umbilical cord or placenta charm bead encased in crystal clear UV resin. There’s a really informative DIY placenta encapsulation video here on YouTube but please be warned, it’s very graphic!

placenta and umbilical cord charm colour options
You can pick one of our eight colour mixes, or choose “classic cord” for a piece set in clear resin with a white background. Click on this colour options page to see more info about each variation, including how we place each of the colours and shimmers. Each piece will look unique because of the natural colours of the umbilical cord and placenta powder and we can’t predict the results. Colours vary from white to red, black, pink and brown and everything in between.

adding hair
You can add a first curl as an additional element to any of our umbilical cord and placenta keepsake pieces, just write what you’d like in the box above.

    I absolutely love this piece. I had kept hold of my little boy’s umbilical cord stump but it was just loose in a drawer. Now it is a beautiful piece of jewellery, and will be preserved forever. Umbi cord is surprisingly gorgeous set into resin. I love it!

    I love my umbilical cord stump charm very much and the genuine opal adds a beautiful shimmer to it. The charm was made from the stumps of my two babies and will be treasured forever. Thank you so much!

    My charm arrived this morning and I can’t believe how beautiful it is. Such a special piece that symbolises the bond between me and my baby and something that I can treasure forever. I absolutely love it and was definitely worth the wait, already looking to order another piece.
