Our keepsake beads have always been our most popular item & now we have more options to add!
You can choose from a few different shapes and sizes: the heart shaped bead with angel wings imprinted around it, a regular sized smooth round bead, a mini sized smooth round bead, and a faceted round bead. The heart shaped bead does not come with bead caps and each style of bead can be put on a charm bracelet (fits most European style charm bracelets including Pandora), a necklace or sold alone. The smooth round beads, mini beads and faceted beads all come with sterling silver bead caps/grommets on the ends, unless otherwise requested.
Each bead/charm will be made from whichever keepsake material you would like and can be customized with pigment, flakes and/or shimmers. Please go back to the 'products' page and you can choose what you'd like from the available options. If you would like more than one thing added please go in and add them to your cart individually.
Some examples a of materials I typically work with are:
if there is another material you would like to use please send me a conversation and I will try my best to accommodate it.
**Please note that hair cannot be added to the heart charm due to the small size of the mold.
How the process works:
You will mail me thawed breastmilk (1-2 ounces, depending on how many pieces you are having made), hair, ashes, placenta powder or any other material you would like to me to include (please check the ‘Sending your Inclusions’ page for how much to send)
Once received I will start working on your piece and that is when processing time begins. Please note that processing time does not include shipping time
Once your piece is finished I allow it to cure for extra time before it is shipped back to you
I ship all completed items once per week with Canada Post
You will be notified by email once your item has shipped
Please allow up to 14 days for delivery within Canada and up to 21 days internationally. Postal service can be delayed for a number of reasons, all of which are out of my control.
Once you have placed your order please read the section entitled 'Shipping' for mailing instructions.
Thank you for shopping with Made by Mama; we look forward to creating a unique keepsake item to commemorate your journey!
