Shimmers & Flecks

Beyond The Willow Tree offers a range of free shimmers and flecks to add on to your order with us.
All you need to do is take a look at what we have and add this to your order details within your notes. Photo's of examples below.

Tip - Also adding your choices at checkout will help save time when I am working with your order.


  • Pearl
  • Gold.

Pearl shimmer is great for items such as breast milk and hair beads. Gold shimmer is best with darker materials such as ashes, placenta and umbilical. Gold is also stunning within the whole range! Both gold and pearl can be added to anything you like.

Flecks which catch the light

  • Red
  • Dark green
  • Light green
  • Copper
  • Silver
  • Light Pink
  • Dark pink
  • Dark opal
  • Crystal flecks
  • Turquoise
  • Dark Blue
  • Purple
  • Gold
  • Peacock
  • Flamingo
  • Milk opal (looks very similar to an actual opal)

 Tip -

  • Gold shimmer and a choice of coloured fleck looks STUNNING together with all beads except breast milk.
  • Milk opal with pearl shimmer is GORGEOUS!
  • Dark opal looks amazing with umbilical cord or placenta!
  • If you state you would like your umbilical, placenta or ashes piece to look like a little universe (similar to the picture of the umbilical and dark opal above) please just state 'the look of a universe' in your notes. 

We do NOT recommend flecks to be added with milk at all.

Each piece you buy from us is handmade with love and crafted so individually different. This means that no two products will ever be the same. Although we put a lot of time and dedication into our work, there may be something which sets apart one piece from the next. It could be a small bubble, or a seam which is a little evident. Buying handmade, means buying an extension of an artists expression. 
Each item you send us will also be different from the next person's, so please remember we cannot replicate an exact version of something you may see on our store as colours & materials will always vary. Thank you for choosing handmade.
