Previous Commissions

Whether its a placenta or cremated ashes, if you, like my previous clients, appreciate the significance of my work and wish to celebrate a special bond perhaps these mementos will inspire you. All memento's can be adapted to suit the individual.


Placenta MEMENTOS

The Placenta Photo Frame is one of my most popular pieces, although some mothers have also commissioned me to create other ideas. I am happy to create items not only from placenta but other bodily materials such as breast milk and hair, contact me for more details.
PLACENTA NUORISHMENT PILLS: I’m sure you’ve heard of women eating their placenta declaring it is great nourishment for new mothers. Many have also been looking towards nourishment pills. However, in 2015, according to the BBC it was scientifically proven that eating your placenta has no health benefit. So why not have a Placenta Memento instead? A permanent, useful and appreciative way to honour your private bond, PLUS Theses small designs are great for using up your leftovers pills.

Placenta Bead

Placenta Beads with a sterling silver inside edge are £35.00 each or you can add them to your Placenta Photo Frame order to take advantage of special discounts. Alongside a Placenta Photo Frame, Placenta Beads are £22.00 each. 

 

Placenta Key Ring

Placenta Key Rings are £12.00 each or you can add them to your Placenta Photo Frame order to take advantage of special discounts. Alongside a Placenta Photo Frame, Placenta Key Rings are £9.00 each. 

 

PRESERVED MEMENTO

THE UMBILICAL CORD: The umbilical cord has always been a significant object in childbirth, connecting mother and baby via the baby’s belly button and placenta. Once your baby has arrived, most people would take part in the ‘cutting of the cord’. Over the years, women have kept the umbilical cord to treasure the memory of pregnancy and labour.  
PROCESS: Whether you choose a heart, spiral or an organic shape, the preservation of an umbilical cord is a delicate one. So far I’ve found everyone’s umbilical cord is different in length and texture, however, most shapes or even letters can be created. For the same cost as a preserved umbilical cord, it is also possible to have your umbilical cord placed inside your Placenta Photo Frame so it’s visible, contact me for details.  
PRICE: Your umbilical cord can be transformed into any shape and preserved for £35.00, wooden presentation frame’s are an extra £8.00.  Or add a your preserved umbilical cord to your Placenta Photo Frame order and take advantage of special discounts – Along side a Placenta Photo Frame, a preserved umbilical cord’s is £15.00, wooden presentation frame’s are still an extra £8.00.
