Wire Wrapped Necklace Kit with all the silver needed to choose from a variety of wire wrapped designs. so all you need to do is add a necklace chain and your resin stone. Does not include ashes etc or chain as shown in the pictures, but you can buy necklace chains from us here. You might be able to make two necklaces from the wire you receive, depending on the size of the stone you make and the design you choose. Please let us know if you’d like to buy the wire from us by itself. Please note: the kit does not come with specific instructions, you can use the videos below for inspiration to make a breastmilk, ashes, hair or umbilical cord stone and then the wire wrapping videos for inspiration on making a wire wrapped pendant.
If you don’t feel ready to make your own wire wrapped setting, you can contact Chloé Singh at Crafty Lion Mutha who will work out a price with you to set your piece with wire wrapping (UK based).
Making A Wire Wrapped Keepsake Necklace
The kit contents are listed below if you’d like to buy it all separately and this can be more cost-effective if you’re making pieces professionally or making several for family members. We include a single mould with the kits but it’s easier to make two cushions at once to offer your client a choice, so you may wish to purchase the double mould. You may want to order the complete set of resin sparkle mix blends, and other supplies, a pack of cocktail sticks, and larger bottles of resin for example.

I find that the crown range sells for at least £80/piece with a necklace chain, so it is worth the investment if you are good at upselling extras to your clients. Use our stock images to encourage sales.
The kit comes with a single mould of your choice, and you can add an extra double mould if you prefer to make more stones. 12mm sphere mould, 18mm heart mould, 20mm round mould, 25x18mm oval mould or 25x18mm teardrop mould. You will need to ensure that the stone or sphere you make is finished as perfectly as possible, front or back. You can experiment by making two flatback stones and gluing them together to make a deeper, more 3D stone to wire wrap. Please note the sizing info in the description!
Wire Wrapped Necklace Chain
Although this kit doesn’t include a chain, we sell some necklace chains here (click) and you can purchase the length you need according to your client’s preferences. You might want to buy in some inexpensive 20″/50cm lightweight chains to include free of charge with necklaces as clients will usually expect a chain. We found on Tree of Opals that even if we advertised a piece as not including a chain, we used to still receive complaints that one was not included. I doubt many people will read this and we will get complaints about the lack of chain but I want to give you the option to purchase them locally inexpensively or upsell your clients to a premium chain. You can usually get chains from local suppliers such as Cookson Gold (UK), Rashbel (Israel) and Rio Grande (USA) or buy a silver necklace chain here on Etsy. We find you can make a little extra income from upselling chain upgrades and other accessories and ensure that your client has a strong, sturdy chain according to their needs.
Breastmilk necklaces we would definitely always advise are upsold to stronger chains as many people ordering breastmilk jewellery will have babies and toddlers who will try to grab them! Just make sure that your client knows the necklaces are not child-safe, should be worn with care and common sense and not used as fiddle beads/teething jewellery! I tried to always make the difference between breastmilk jewellery and breastfeeding jewellery clear!
