In a departure from my usual photography related ramblings…… My 2 girls and several of my friends children have always worn amber teething necklaces, and apart from looking really pretty on girls and super cool on boys I actually believe they work to calm them during the tough times babes have when their teeth are coming through. The amber works when worn against the skin, rather than being chewed, as it’s a natural analgesic. How cool is that, using fossilised tree resin as a drug free pain reliever – see, told you I’m a bit of a hippy!
Anyway, I often get asked about them and have made quite a lot for friends and as presents. And a few people in Abu Dhabi have enquired about me making them – if you’re interested, then shoot me an email and I’ll get one run up in the few spare (ha ha!!) moments I have. Just as a disclaimer of liability. All the beads are hand knotted so if the necklace breaks the beads remain intact. They are meant to be worn by infants over 6 months old, and the longevity of the clasp (which is amber mounted) is dependent on how often you take the necklace off – not very often in the case of my girls!!!
Any questions, give me a shout, Kirsty x

how long would it take to get one and how much would it cost please.

emma - They’ve been super. It might be too early to tell, but both of the kids have been way less irritable today. I haven’t given them any tylenol for teething pain, but they seem happy and pain free with the necklaces. Plus, the necklaces are adorable. I took the kids strolling in the mall today and got many compliments.
amberlady - Amber is incredible and unmatched in its natural healing powers – and not just for children. People have used amber for centuries for arthritis, respiratory infections including chronic asthma, as a stress reliever that interacts with the body’s nervous system and much, much more. Researchers and scientists have expounded on the exceptional ability of Baltic Amber to thwart infection and enhance immunity. Today, everyone is turning more toward homeopathic medicines – Amber is at the top of the list in it’s healing abilities. Do you own research and you will amazed at what Baltic Amber can do.http://www.amberartisans.com/
