Kidney Shaped Jewelry & Organ Transplant Gifts

Kidney and transplant jewelry designed by a longtime kidney patient with a creative spirit
and the desire to create something positive from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).


Each item is a small, symbolic reminder that life is about hope, love and continuity. 


I’m Myra Schwartz, USA kidney patient, transplant recipient and jewelry designer.

The idea to create kidney shaped jewelry followed the loss of my own kidney function. I spent 10 years on hemodialysis before receiving a living donor kidney transplant in July, 2002.

I’ve been a bead jewelry designer by trade since 1991. Not long after starting dialysis in 1991, I came across my first kidney shaped beads at a gem show and a collection was born. Formerly known as Spare Parts Jewelry, my line now has a constantly changing assortment of miniature kidneys made of sterling silver, gemstone, glass, bone, wood and other materials. Beads shaped like kidneys are fairly rare and difficult to find…much like the real thing.


I’m pleased that has shipped orders to every state in the USA, as well as many countries spanning 5 of the 7 continents. 

Your business support inspired me to donate a portion of sales to kidney patient education programs, both national and local.
Thank you for your purchases to help make $6500 in donations possible.
