Today I went to one of those bead jewlery shops that seem to be popping up all over the place, and I made myself a nursing necklace. I was really fun, and I really hope the baby enjoys it. I had never even heard of a nursing necklace before my last baby, but I knew I would make one for my next baby when I heard someone talking about theirs. I made mine very earthy, round speckeled jade stones, flat oval blue marble stones, sterling silver, and a large brown stone turtle in the middle. I love turtles, they bring luck to their owners. I made the stone part to seperate from a string around my neck so that it can also be worn as a bracelet, or I can take it off for the baby to play with. It turned out perfect. If you are looking for a little personal project for your new baby that is really rather simple I suggest making one of your own!!
