Mothers Moon Nursing Necklaces & other Jewelry
"Nursing Necklaces” are necklaces that hang down for your baby to see and touch while at the breast.
My original nursing necklaces were made of a carved bone (harvested from a domesticated animal that lived a full & useful life) goddess with full breasts and a spiral upon her belly. They are hand strung and knotted upon your choice of leather or cotton cord, and with or without bead embellishments.
Many of my Nursing Necklaces have Magnetic Clasps, which allow you to remove the necklace easily if she should fall asleep with it in her hand, and also allows it to break away should she tug too hard. This latter feature is helpful with older children who may grab at the necklace as well, and for that reason also makes a good clasp for necklaces (and bracelets & anklets) for active older children to wear themselves.
People of all ages who have trouble binding clasps find these much easier to put on and take off.
The necklace you see at right is part of a mother/daughter gift set. The daughter's necklace constists of one light and one dark bead, as if mother & daughter each traded a bead. Equally beautiful if refered to as a mother/son set as well... simply a wonderful tradtion to include older siblings in the welcoming of a new baby, or for any occasion.
I also create many other beaded necklaces, bracelets, anklets & earrings, including a selection of nursing reminder bracelets, hand-strung on stretch cording. Breastfeeding experts usually recommend nursing on both sides during a feeding, starting with the side that the baby last nursed on....after nursing simply slip the bracelet upon the wrist on the side you last nursed on.
Mothers Moon jewelry can be custom ordered, in stock designs offered at various shows I do throughout the year and through special sales upon my web-sites.
