Laughing Starfish, that's who. This beauty is called Kelp Empire. My birthstone is peridot and only in recent years could you get anything beautiful in this color, so I still jump at the chance.
Lovely peridot dyed green crystals that accent this loop pendant. They
are surrounded by more faceted green glass and some silver accents, and
they shimmer and sparkle in sunlight!
The loop is double-strung with strong nylon coated wire and hanging from a satin cord which closes with a lobster-claw clasp that has a teeny starfish charm accent.
She'll cut your necklace at any length: super low for young nurslings or high for optimal showing off above a lower cut t-shirt. I'm getting this one with a chocolate brown cord and cut shorter. Hazel is almost three and still nursing but she can reach it if she wants to play with it. Hah!
The thing is, these are called nursing necklaces but *anyone* can wear them. I usually get complimented over and over by teenaged girls and trust me, they have no idea it can be used as a nursing necklace. Beyond that, if you have a baby of any age, nursing or not, they will love to play with it. It's just beautiful and practical jewelry. I am actually not a jewelry person but Laughing Starfish is different and suits my busy no-fuss-allowed lifestyle.
And to go with it?
More of those fabulous peridot dyed green crystals, this time in a shape that will feel smoother on the wrist, are wire-wrapped together with thick wire to a square watch face, and have an extra bit of chain on the end so that you can adjust the length of the watch for comfort!
I love square faced watches.
Earrings! I admit, I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 21, so I never remember to change my earrings. My ears are extremely sensitive so I have to leave gold posts in them or they will get infected and/or grow over in no time. I can wear super hypoallergenic earrings during the day for short 12 hour stints.
Dorota made these for me with niobium hooks. She usually makes them with silver plated hooks, or if you want she can put them on sterling silver or surgical steel or niobium for sensitive ears, and she can include earring backings if you need those too.
And while I was checking out with these, I found this Necklace for a Mermaid. I cannot resist!
Dorota is great to work with, and her packages are so fun to receive. She usually covers them with stickers and even includes candy inside! (As if her luscious jewelry isn't yummy enough!)
Even if you are just window shopping, she's worth a look. It's like candy for your neck. Laughing Starfish! She's my dealer.
