I'm a stay-at-home mom of two small kids, a 2-year-old and a 3-month-old. Our lives mainly consist of hanging out at home, walking to the grocery store, and spending a ridiculous amount of time at the nearby Children's Museum. Since I don't really go anywhere special, and since my outfits are likely to be covered in baby spitup or toddler snot at any given time, I tend to wear the "mom uniform" of jeans and a casual shirt.
Lately though, I've been wanting to spruce up my outfits a bit and have started trying to accessorize better. And this mainly means wearing some bigger necklaces, things that add to my boring solid colored shirts. Unfortunately, as mentioned, I have a toddler and a newborn, and both are fascinated with grabbing anything that Mommy is wearing around her neck.
Enter Teething Bling. I'd heard about these necklaces before, so emailed the company to see if I could do a review. They kindly sent me their Onyx Donut Shaped Pendant.
I really liked the necklace- it's simple, but stylish, especially this year when the big, chunky pieces are in style. And I love the concept of having something for my baby to chew on while she's working on growing her teeth and having it right around my neck- I can never find the teething ring in the depths of my diaper bag.
My toddler also thought the necklace was great fun and spent a happy 15 minutes during dinner last night poking it and smashing it and making it bounce off the table. We like to go out to eat as a family, and entertaining the toddler is always our major challenge, so this is a handy thing to have for entertaining him!
I think this is going to be a great necklace for all of us- stylish for me, a nice teething ring for my daughter and entertainment for my son.
The only (very minor) thing that I don't like about this necklace is that the silicone material picks up a little bit of fuzz and dust, so I'll definitely need to wipe it off or wash it off before my daughter uses it for teething. But that's probably a good idea anyway, and certainly not a major issue.
You can buy the Teething Bling necklaces in a huge variety of colors and patterns at Smart Mom Jewelry. In addition to the donut pendants, they have keychains and bangles and some heart-shaped pendants. You can also get some very nice gift sets on the site. The website also has a list of retailers where you can buy the necklaces.
The donut pendants, like the one I reviewed, sell for $19.10. Right now the pretty Moonstone pendant is on sale for only $9.50, and the coordinating Moonstone bangle is only $6.30, so if you're wanting to try this jewelry out, that might be a great place to start!
