How to Order from this Website

Sorry, there is no shopping cart currently on this site,

although there is a plan for one, hopefully soon!


1. Ask for a Paypal Invoice (you do NOT need a paypal account)

2. I’ll need to know where it will be shipping.

3. Will you require postal insurance?

I do NOT take credit card numbers by phone.

NOTE: It is NOT SAFE to send credit card information by email.

Most orders ship within 24 hours after payment arrives.

If you prefer to send a Paypal payment without prior communication,

Step by step instructions are on page 21.

Be sure your paypal account address is accurate. IF you are shipping to Illinois

or to a country outside of the US, you will need to ask for an invoice.


International Customs may open packages and charge excessive duty fees/VAT taxes.

They may also confiscate items deemed prohibited.

A few of my orders have been taxed after entering customs.

Please familiarize yourself with your country’s customs regulations regarding

sterling silver, goldfill or coral before you place an order containing these materials.

I cannot be held responsible for extra fees or for confiscated items

and need to be sure you understand and agree to the risks and possibilities.

Please inquire for exact shipping costs to your country.

Story Behind the Jewelry Collection

Thank you for visiting my website! I’m Myra Schwartz in Chicago, Illinois (USA), a kidney patient most of my adult life. 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 non related donor kidney transplant in July, 2002.

(A note to my remarkable donor is on page 20.)

I’m a bead jewelry designer by trade. Not long after starting dialysis in 1991, I came across my first kidney shaped beads 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 and other materials. Beads shaped like kidneys are fairly rare and difficult to find...much like the real thing!

This website probably has more kidney shaped items than anywhere else in the world. Besides what I find to work into my own designs, I also commission other artists to make one-of-a-kind kidneys to keep the selection new and exciting. In addition, I search for vintage kidney shaped jewelry/objects at estate sales & auctions and put them on my “Vintage/Found Jewelry” page.

The kidney jewelry that I design is infused with my love of beads, a creative spirit, and the desire to create something positive from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Each item is a small reminder that life is about hope, love and continuity. It is my hope that you feel this spirit and are nurtured into positive thought. I wish you good health!

I’m so pleased that has shipped orders to every state in the USA, as well as many countries around the world spanning five of the seven continents. Your business is appreciated!

A portion of each item sold is donated to kidney patient education programs. I’m proud and pleased to have sent over $6000.00 in donations since starting this program. Thank you to everyone who has placed an order to help make this possible.

My 2014 donations went to the Renal Support Network, a national patient run organization based in California and the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. Click on the hyperlinks to view their wonderful websites.

Please consider sending your own donations to these worthy and hard working organizations. Donations can easily be made online to these or your own favorite kidney groups.
