placenta and umbilical cord orb necklace or dangle charm
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 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 orb 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 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.
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 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.
Umbilical Cord Orb
Silver Orb Findings
The necklace setting for the umbilical cord or placenta powder also includes a light weight 20”/50cm sterling silver chain but you can upgrade to a more secure, different style or longer chain here. We highly recommend this!
You can choose a charm bead setting for European (Pandora style) or carabiner clasp (Thomas Sabo style) large link bracelets and necklaces. You’ll find our charm bead upgrades here including stamped charm washers and bracelets.
This listing is for a single “orb” sphere which now comes as an 11mm orb with a sterling silver hand wire wrapped bail, made from 0.8mm wire. We no longer put a little silver ball at the bottom, it is a flat domed 6mm disc soldered to the head pin now.
