Mama's Magical Baby Friendly Beads

Jen of Mama's Magic Studio and Baby Friendly Beads is the featured EtsyBlogger of October. Congrats, Jen! Jen is a domestic goddess and proud stay at home mom who is aspiring to be a children's book author.

Jen owes the success of here Baby Friendly Beads shop to her son. She realized when he was nine months that he needed something to occupy him while breast feeding, aside from pinching her and tugging on her hair. With this idea, the Nursing Necklace was born. All of her necklaces are baby safe, with one long continuous cord and knots, as opposed to clasps and connectors which can become weak and break. The best part is that the pieces are pretty enough to wear out as actual jewelry. Below is an example of her custom birth stone design, however, she also sells pre-made necklaces in many colors.


She also sells Reminder Bracelets, which can be used to keep track of which breast was used to nurses last. It can either be used to mark which was used last, or which should be used next. The baby friendly nursing reminder bracelet below is named Dorthy, with the colors of light blue, white, and red.


Jen doesn't just sell jewelry for women with nursing babies, however. In her second shop, Mama's Magic Studio, she sells cute Fraternal Earrings. She describes Fraternal Earrings as being like fraternal twins - not identical, but a great pair!


So check out Jen's two shops, and be sure to read her beautiful blog.

she's very creative, isn't she? Hadn't seen her fraternal earrings yet.

BTW, haven't sold anything on Shop Handmade, but it doesn't cost anything to list. I just donate 25¢ to the rainforest (if anything sells) and have chosen 1¢ commission to go to their site. Another NYC based website.

sorry, 1%, not 1¢ - it's early!
