I had not yet felt a great need for mom jewelry. For me, wearing my child’s name around my neck felt redundant because frankly, she is hanging around my neck.(After 15 months of breastfeeding and a total failure to ever accept a bottle, my husband has deemed her my “appendage.”)
But here is some mom jewelry me (and my appendage) can really go for. Because it’s meant for babies too.
Created by Lisa Greenwald, a former fashion-babe turned mom, Chewbeads is a line of non-toxic jewelry inspired by Lisa’s teething son. Sure, we’ve seen teething jewelry before- but this stuff is really cute. Seriously.
The silicon, BPA/PVC/phthalate-free bracelets could pass for something I might have bought at a trendy boutique pre-babe in the season’s latest shades. (Wah, I miss those days!) Then you feel their bouncy-ball-like texture, which will remind your tiny teether of their beloved paci.
Besides, nothing diverts eyes from undereye bags like bright beads around your neck, right? –Phebe
