Ava’s friend gave the jeweler the stump of her baby’s umbilical cord in 2011. At the time, Avra didn’t know what to do with it so she held onto it. “She asked me to make something out of it, but I had no idea what to do,” Avra recalled. But it wasn’t until her son was born a year later that she had that ‘Aha’ moment.

Avra was mesmerized at the vast difference between her son’s umbilical cord and her friend’s. “These are really organic pieces—no two are anywhere alike,” she says. Avra got to work making a necklace for herself and her friend. She loved the challenge of the unique differences between the two that forced her creativity flow to go beyond her bounds. Before she knew it, “suddenly I was making them for all my friends,” she says.

This amazing necklace was one of the early keepsakes pieces I created. It’s an actual umbilical cord that was dried in a coil and made into this necklace. Fast forward many years later it’s back in my studio along with two more cords from two more babies that joined her family and this single pendant is going to be serious statement necklace with all there cords in one piece!!! Stay tuned! . . #keepsakejewelry #umbilicalcord #childbirth #motherhood #parenthood #motherhoodrising #dna #motherlylove
