Our babies are only small for a moment and an umbilical cord teardrop necklace can help keep a small part of your baby close. 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 resin and give you a choice of orbs.
You can see Nikki’s YouTube tutorials here and know that I never film without your permission. I’m considered an expert and offer advanced courses in making breastmilk jewellery, so you’re in safe hands. You might see my designs and stock images elsewhere because other breastmilk artists buy them from me over on Keepsaker Supplies (you’re welcome to buy from there if you’d rather DIY!)
placenta and umbilical cord teardrop necklace 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.
You can add your baby’s first curl or first haircut perhaps as an additional element to any of our umbilical cord and placenta keepsake pieces. Just write what you’d like in the box above!
cord and placenta powder sending kits
We’ll send you a kit a week or so after you order and here’s some advice on sending it in, please read it. It’s really important you keep some ash back and don’t send too much. “Less is more” with keepsake jewellery.
*tw baby loss* If you are looking for a loss piece for a baby or child then please email Nikki on firstname.lastname@example.org who will try to reply straight away. There are some instructions on our Baby Memorial Jewellery page on how to save hair, placenta and umbilical cord if your baby is to be born sleeping and ash if they are cremated.
cord or placenta shape
If you’d like a heart or star shape please let us know in the comments, otherwise we will swirl loose flecks of cord or placenta powder into the resin.
Umbilical Cord Teardrop Necklace Setting
This will be a crown point open-backed setting. The setting for the teardrop necklace also includes a fine weight 20”/50cm sterling silver chain. We highly recommend one of our Necklace Chain Upgrades because the chain included is very fine, especially if you are choosing engraving or a separate engravable pendant! Get in touch with us for a discount on a chain upgrade when purchased together.
See individual product variations. This necklace is not engravable, but you can choose a separate engravable pendant.
