Since we focus mainly on the under 6 set here at Cool Mom Picks, we realize that leaves a bunch of extremely cool mamas out. Truth is, most of the super indie and handmade items we find are for kids still needing their butts wiped.
But when we come across a great pick that we think is perfect for the tweens in the world, we’re happy to spread the word. Take the handmade resin alphabet necklaces by jewelry artisan Anne Kiel. Hung daintily on a ball bearing chain and featuring a simple typewriter font, these colorful and very inexpensive charms will look fantastic dangling from any hormonal adolescent’s neck.
Plus it will give you a good solid ten minutes of bonding before she finds something else to hate you for. -Kristen
