The ArtFul kidney

Kidneys designed by USA Artists

Exclusively for this website

Myra Schwartz, Illinois, USA

Jewelry Designer and Kidney recipient


I invite artists across the USA to create special, one-of-a-kind (OOAK) necklaces or kidney shaped beads for me. I design and fabricate pendants using their beads. On this page you will find artistically wonderful and unique gifts for recipients, donors, devoted supporters and medical personnel.

The handmade glass beads shown below have been made with great skill and expertise to get this shape. Each bead was made individually over a flame or in a kiln and cannot be duplicated.

Double click on images below and then scroll up to see enlarged & actual sized views.

A portion of all kidney jewelry sales from this website is donated to kidney education programs.
