placenta and umbilical cord pearl 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 an umbilical cord or placenta pearl 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 pearl 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.
We can add your loved one or pet’s birthstone as a natural birthstone, just choose it from the menu. The pages there give examples of pieces we have made for clients in the past. Each birthstone will look different depending on your colour choice and the natural colours of the placenta or dried cord.
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.
