Whats On My Bench

In today's edition of Whats on My Bench, Carolyn of VenusVelvet shares what she's been making this month...




Lately, I have been creating a lot of custom necklaces for sweet mamas with little ones that need distraction while nursing or baby-wearing. 40 custom orders over the last month and a half!



The solid links provide comfort and distraction for the wee ones. I'm told they love to play with the links, feel to coolness of the metal in their little hands, watch the sparkle created when the light hits the faceted surface of the links, and listen to the soft jingling sound of the links hitting each other!



The mamas get to look smashingly good with a little bling around their neck... and these necklaces are rugged too.



The custom pieces each have a little personal story - some mama's like to choose to add a little 14k gold accent hoop for each child, some choose a mix of silver and gold to represent each family member, and some include charms for little ones lost but never forgotten. I call them Mother's Little Helpers (or MLH for short).


Thank you Carolyn - your MLH designs are beautiful!

On behalf of the JET Team, I would like to wish all our US readers a very Happy Independence Day. Have a great weekend everyone!

Wow Carolyn, I can see why these are so popular, even if you don't have a baby in your arms! I can also see my grandbaby having a blast playing with one!
