Nursing necklaces inspired by: a mom love of nature, a baby's heritidge, and the aurora borealis

Sometimes, I am asked to create necklace from certain information. Those are by FAR the most difficult ones, but also the most rewarding to create. Here are a few:

One is for baby boy Anders (4 months): Anders' mommy likes earthy colors and his nursery is painted avocado and mustard (it looks really nice). She is a real estate agent, and has a lovely yard.

For Anders, I looked up differnt pictures of fields of mustard plants and added the avacado color along with the rich brown of the earth!


I would like to order 1 nursing necklace for my son, Kai.
Please design one for us, using your creative instincts. Just some hints: Kai means "ocean," his father is from Hawaii, and I am Hispanic. You can incorporate these hints or not it is completely up to you.

For Kia's, I visited websites of Hispanic art and scenes of Hawaiian beaches and landscaping. The red/white/blue by his name is from the colors of the flag of Mexico.


One mom lives in Alaska and inspired me to make a necklace inspired by the Northern Lights! I researched the northern lights and found this paragraph that discribes it pretty well. This one took me a long time to make!

Picture yourself outside on a clear dark night. Low on the horizon you notice a faint glow of greenish light which forms an arch, stretching lazily across the sky. As time passes, additional bands of light form and drift overhead, slowly brightening to form giant curtains in the sky that slowly wave as if a gentle breeze were blowing. Suddenly, the bottom of the curtains brighten with a reddish tint and ripple faster. Blues and purples appear. As the curtains pass directly overhead, you see bright points of light that swirl like a pinwheel. The entire sky seems to be full of color and motion. Then, after several minutes, everything fades into a warm green glow.

What a challenging necklace this was to make! I worked on this necklace for hours, starting it and cutting it apart because it didn't quite match the description. I love how it turned out though, and more importantly, so did Emma.

And the same necklace being used by Karen and Emma.
