Umbilical Cord Charm

Umbilical cord stump or dried placenta jewellery. Our babies 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 into a _ encased in crystal clear resin. Add an additional element like a lock of hair, flowers or a piece of fabric too if you like.

Sending Elements
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order to post in a little of your baby’s cord stump or placenta capsule and any Additional Elements, and here’s some advice on sending. It’s really important you keep some back just in case please and we only need a tiny amount.

Colours and Sparkles
We can add an infinite choice of colours and shimmers to the cord or placenta dust, just click the link for examples of pieces with colour, shimmer, glitter, opalescent flakes and pearlescent powders. You’ll see examples of umbilical cord and cremation ash pieces we’ve made for clients in the past and we’re always happy to help with creative suggestions. It might seem strange to look at cremation ash pieces but the end results are quite similar and you might find inspiration from the love we’ve put into those pieces.

Precious Stones
We can add your baby’s birthstone to a _ as a rough precious stone, just choose it from the drop down menu. Our rough precious stone page gives examples of pieces we have made for clients in the past and in that page you’ll find links to each individual birthstone’s gallery.

    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!
