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
