I don't think I'll actually wear the necklace while in labor(I'm one of those women who can't stand anything touching them during a contraction) but I know I want it close by where I can at least see the beads and maybe grab them if I feel like I need a little extra help. I was thinking that if DD wants to be around while I'm in labor, it might be a good idea to put her in charge of the necklace and have her bring it to me when I want it or something.

OK Mamas, I made my necklace last night. I am happy the way it turned out (although it is a little off-balance). My 4yo helped me make it too, and we had a great time doing it together :)

 

Here is a pic (taken from my phone, so not the best focus or quality):

I added the beads from my mama-blessing, the filler beads are moonstone chips and garnet, there are also beads that are from the pearl & amethyst necklace that DF gave me for Valentine's Day (they were leftovers from when we had the necklace shortened to fit me).

I finished my necklace! I'm going to wear it to my dr's appointment tomorrow (first appointment since July 28th, new dr, so I'm nervous) so all the good thoughts and wishes of you all will be with me. I'll try to post a pic of my necklace tomorrow!

Birth Bead necklace!!

 

Here's my necklace (draped over my chair lol). I LOVE how it turned out. I used some natural (irregular) freshwater pearls, a couple small wooden beads, and some amethyst beads as fillers/spacers/accents. I used those in particular because they are natural, just like birth. Plus, amethysts are supposed to bring calmness and clarity where there is confusion and anxiety and among other things, is supposed to foster peace and healing. (Also they are purple, my favorite color!) Pearls are among other things supposed to help with emotional stress.

Thanks!! :D Yeah it is cool we both added the same things! I'd forgotten you had added those until you just mentioned it so I wasn't copying you or anything. ;)

I love it, AveryLamb! 

I'd like to know more about the links you used -- it looks great, and I've never seen beads on a chain like that.

Thanks! I just used a chain in the v there (two links) and around the back. The rest is a chain made from a few beads on an eye pin, linked together. (I make jewelry...I don't have a website for it but I've been doing it for a while).
