This style of necklace can be worn as a regular everyday necklace and can also be used as a nursing necklace - I have a couple of them and love to wear them as daily jewelry!

A nursing necklace provides something for your little one to hold on to instead of your hair and clothes during feedings and baby wearing. I make mine with materials such as stone and wood so they'll be wearable as jewelry after nursing and not be packed away with the baby things! These are absolutely great for nursing mothers. Mamas say that their little ones focus and nurse for longer periods of time, are mesmerized by the pendants and love them, hold on to them instead of clawing at their chest and tearing out their hair during feedings (ouch!), and many other great comments.

This necklace is made with a stone turquoise howlite carved turtle that is 2" long. I've tied natural brown and turquoise wooden beads up the side for accents. The necklace is made with brown cotton cord tied with an adjustable sliding knot that goes out to 26". This adorable little guy is smooth all over with no sharp edges, so he's nice and safe for babies and mamas! This turtle is a sample of what you'll receive. They're all pretty much the same except the veined pattern in the stone; I can send you a picture if you want!

Howlite is a calming stone and can be used to relieve stress as well as insomnia. It will help calm the mind, which also makes it a good stone for meditation. Howlite is also used for creativity and encouraging emotional expression, subtlety and tact. As well as helping to eliminate pain, stress and rage. It is a simple and gentle stone that aids sleep and helps bring back wisdom from the dream state.

The turtle is seen to represent a connection with the earth, being grounded, longevity, protection, and a steady approach to life. It is considered by some Native Americans to be one of their oldest, most sacred symbols. They believed that North America was created on the back of The Great Mother, a turtle. In Eastern Asia, the carapace (the top of the shell) was a symbol of heaven and the plastron (the belly of the shell) was a symbol of earth. The turtle was an animal whose magic united these two. To the Chinese, turtles are regarded as one of the four divine animals, also including the dragon, phoenix and chimera.

Please don't leave your children alone with this or let them use it for teething. You as the buyer assume all responsibility.
