Jellystone Design – Jewelry for Mothers to Wear with Babies in Mind

I love things designed with both a practical and an aesthetic purpose in mind. Jellystone Designs jewelry falls into this category with their jewelry which is safe for small children and looks good on mom too.

The jewelry is made in a non-toxic material, child friendly shapes, several delicious colours and has a soft feel. All nice features for toys, but for the idea of a toy-jewelry to work moms have to feel pretty wearing the jewelry as well, and I think Jellystone Designs is well on their way to finding the perfect middle way between toy and jewelry.

I really love Jellystone Designs Pebble Bead Necklace and Organic bangle. The bangle is meant as a teether, and the Necklace is part of the “Tuggable” range which features a break-free clasp, that will easily separate when tugged.

Teething Bling – Teething Jewelry – Giveaway!


Babies just love to pull, bite and suck on jewelry, and thus wearing jewelry while holding a baby can be potentially dangerous for both baby and the jewelry.

But is it any wonder that babies become interested in your bangle or necklace while sitting on your lap? It’s all straight in the babies face screaming “come and get me!”

This is why I think the concept of teething jewelry is simply brilliant, as it replaces all those potential dangers with safe teethers.

SmartMoms Teething Bling is a series teething jewelry consisting of teething bangles (12.75 USD), teething pendants (19.10 USD) and teething keychain charms (15.90 USD) in many fashionable colors.

The teething jewelry is made from a food-safe, phthalate-free and federally-approved silicone, making it completely safe for the baby to chew on.

There are gift boxes available, containing color matching teething jewelry. These gift boxes cost between 28.75 USD and 36.00 USD, depending on what’s in them.

You can buy SmartMoms Teething Bling at the SmartMom website.
