New in my shop! Crochet pattern for this bright, cheerful necklace.

Silly question: why is it called a nursing necklace?
Haha! Not a silly question at all. It’s not the most marketable (or self-explanatory) name. It’s a regular necklace that can be used as visual stimulation for a nursing baby (whether breast or bottle fed). Infants are drawn to highly saturated, high contrast colors and shapes; and older babies might like to explore the textures by touching the necklace (or, it can divert their wandering attention away from mom’s “real” jewelry). I made and used this necklace with that intention in mind – and must say, it worked wonderfully! Though, it will still be an amazing necklace even if there aren’t any babies in sight!
