Now that our family is complete, I have been on the lookout for a piece of mother’s jewelry. My children are my greatest blessings and I wanted something to represent them. When I came across Mama’s B’s Sweet Peas, I fell in love! The artist, Stevie Ballinger, creates sterling silver or gold filled pods that contain Swarovski Crystal Pearls in the birthstone colors of your child or children. Kristen and I both got to design a pendant. I looked at the chart on Stevie’s site and choose the colors for my kids. Each month has a main color and an alternate color. I was happily surprised to find that both of the colors for Little Miss’s month were pink. Very fitting in our case! I chose the sterling silver Full Quiver pod, which holds 6-10 peas, with a sterling silver chain.
I LOVE it! It’s so unique and pretty! I wear it every day and have gotten many compliments on it. Another thing I love about Mama B’s Sweet Peas is that Stevie also offers Loss Sweet Peas. These smaller peas allow mamas to represent little ones that have been lost in their pods.
I have a bracelet that I was given after my losses with charms that represented my angel babies and it meant so much. It was a nice way to acknowledge them and keep their memory close to me.
In addition to the pendants, Stevie also offers earrings and bracelets.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing your jewelry. You can go with birthstone colors or choose colors that you like or that may be your child’s favorite color. The options are endless! And if you’re concerned about how certain colors may look together, Stevie will even send you pics of those peas together so you can get a good idea of the how the finished product will look before you make your final decision. Pretty awesome, huh? These beautiful pods are perfect for any mama or grandma who wants to represent their little ones with a unique piece of jewelry!
I was sent my own necklace as well!
I chose a pea for each of my children, but I included a pea for the child we lost at 15 weeks. To me, that child is part of our family and should be included. So I selected the peas for June, September, July, April & December. In the order of their births and placed the loss (April) where the loss occurred. I love my necklace. It is elegant. What I especially love, is that it functions are regular jewelry and does not scream “mommy necklace”!
One lucky reader will receive their choice of either a Sweet Pea Pendant and chain, or a Full Quiver Pendant, or a pair of Sweet Pea Earrings!
