I made the necklace so the baby will have something to "mess" with while nursing. I am not one to enjoy nipple twiddling on the opposite breast!! What I did was basically make a bracelet. I tried to use stones and silver with different shapes and textures so it would be interesting to play with. I also have a large turtle shaped stone that hangs off the middle of the bracelet part. I had to go have it fixed actually, because my dd pulled if off the bracelet without even trying!! So, now the turtle comes off also, it attaches with a clasp that is much stronger than the ring that it had. Then, I can attach the entire bracelet to a leather strap around my neck. So, I can wear the strap, I can attach the bracelet to it, and I can attach the turtle to that. I hope that makes sense!!! It came out beautifully, and it's so versitile, I can wear the bracelet alone, with the strap, and with or without the turtle. I figure the bracelet will forever be a reminder to me of the precious time when my babe nursed. I did think about making it to remind me which side I had nursed last, but I never really had a problem keeping track of that with my first babe, so I decided not to worry about it! I will try to post a picture of it, then you will be able to get a better idea of what I mean! Basically I just looked at different designs on the internet from jewlery shops that sell them, and then I just went from there. The possibilities are endless!!
