Wild Mother Arts Nursing Necklace Giveaway

Jacquelyn Smith from TLB sponsor Wild Mother Arts, has 3 beautiful necklaces to giveaway this week.  Designed to be strong and safe, her jewelry is perfect for the mother of little children and can withstand the yanking and twiddling that comes with children.  Jacquelyn answers a few questions about her business and her own experience with nurslings.


TLB:  How did you get started making jewelry and where did you get the the idea for “nursing necklaces?”

Jacquelyn:  I’ve been making jewelry for many years out of a desire to celebrate the milestone’s in women’s lives. I started out by making jewelry for births and mother blessings, and after wearing these pieces my friends and doula clients began asking for sturdy necklaces they could wear while breastfeeding. I did some research and came across “nursing necklaces” but mainly what I found were plastic and acrylic necklaces. I absolutely adore gemstones and love learning about their properties and meanings, and decided to add handmade gemstone nursing necklaces to my collection.

TLB:  Where your own children distracted at the breast?  Where there stages where they were more distracted than others?

Jacquelyn:  My own children popping on and off the breast, and wanting to twiddle with my hair, my clothes and especially my other breast, nearly drove me batty. Sometimes they were good nursers and would get down to business right away, and sometimes they would do anything but actually nurse. When they were about 3-4 months they began to start becoming distracted, and then around 6-8 months it really began in earnest. Suddenly everything is more interesting than sitting down for more than a minute or two to nurse.

TLB:  Aside from a necklace, what other tips do you have for moms with fidgety, distracted babies at the breast?

Jacquelyn:  I’ve found that trying to find a quiet, familiar space can be really helpful with distracted nurslings, but that’s not always possible is it? Singing, telling a story, and nonsense rhymes can all help keep a baby interested in sitting down and nursing. And for wiggly, younger babies who like to twiddle, I found that in a cradle hold you can tuck one of their arms underneath your breast, and then you can hold their other wandering hand tucked in yours. That saved my sanity, and after a while, my youngest would almost always hold my hand while he nursed. Even when he was older. 🙂


Wild Mother Arts is giving away three nursing necklaces:


Sugar Plum, a $20 value.

Sugar Plum is perfect for the holidays or anytime. It’s made with a grass flower jasper & pyrite composite donut & dressed up with a double-lotus Tierracast lead-free pewter bead. This stone is thought to release tension, increase self-confidence and invite joy into our lives.

Mama’s Heart, a $18 value.

Mama’s Heart in purple & cream amethyst helps you wear your heart on your sleeve. Amethyst is said to bring inner peace, dispel grief and offer balance and abundance. This one has beautiful natural V-shaped marking with natural inclusions.

Educa, a $16 value.

Educa is made with rose quartz which is considered to be the stone of universal love and compassion, encourages peace and calm, and aids during life’s transitions. This necklace is named for the Roman goddess of nourishment who watched the transition from nursing to eating solids, and helped the transition to go smoothly.

Even those are called nursing necklaces, you don’t have to be breastfeeding to enjoy wearing them and would make great gifts too!

  1. I love the Mama’s Heart! It is so beautiful and purple is my favorite color. I am expecting my third child, I nursed my first two and look forward to nursing my new little one when he or she arrives in July!

  2. I love all three necklaces and would be super excited if I won any of them. Being a girl that loves pink though, I think I like the Educa necklace the best. But, I also really like the Sugar Plum necklace. Geez, too tough to pick just one. 🙂

  3. Sugar Plum is my choice! Love the colors!

  4. NicoleNielsen says

    Ohhh I’m in love with the Sugar plum one! It’s so beautiful!!

  5. NicoleNielsen says

    Sugar Plum!!!

    • NicoleNielsen says

      I didn’t mean to post this again. lol. My favorite necklace is the Mama Bear ones. I love it. It’s just to cute. I also really like the pocket birth goddess ones. Fantastic job! You make beautiful jewlery!

  6. Amy Corbet-Elsbree says

    I’m torn between Sugar Plum and Mama’s Heart. I love the colors in the Sugar Plum, but love the qualities of the amethyst in Mama’s Heart. I’d have to say I would want Mama’s Heart

    • Oooh I LOVE these necklaces! Sugar Plum would have to be the one I would choose first tho!

      • Ooops I have replied to someone rather than making my own post sorry 🙁 can you still blame baby brain at 5 months?? 🙂

  7. Amy Corbet-Elsbree says

    LOVE this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/85828839/cross-nursing-necklace-indian-agate
    Love that it mixes two things that bring me peace as of late: My Religion and Nursing my son <3

  8. Checked her Etsy page… Sugar Plum is still my fav! <3

  9. Katelyn McKim says

    I’ve been breastfeeding for 12 weeks and 3 days now ! If I could win one it’d be the Sugar Plum. I’ve noticed my liil’ girl gets distracted very easily and since i’m always out in town I think this would help a little bit.

  10. Went to the website and checked out all the items. Beautiful jewelry! I love the swirl nursing necklace.

  11. Lindsay Pettit says

    I would LOVE to win the Educa nursing necklace!!!! Ever since I started breastfeeding, I have always wanted one! The meaning behind that stone would be perfect for me! And, the color would go with everything! I know that my little one would love it, because she use to play with my hair while eating. But, I cut it short recently, and she has been scratching me ever since. Having the necklace would give her something to play with again. And, it wouldn’t break! Thank you so much <3

  12. kristin caldwell says

    I LOVE the sugar plum necklace!! It’s absolutly beautiful!!!

  13. Angela Ertel says

  22. I love the mama’s heart one. Amethyst is my stepdaughter’s birthstone (and would’ve been my little nursling’s birthstone if he hadn’t decided to join us a few weeks early!) and one of my absolutel favourites. But they’re all beautiful!

  23. Lindsay Pettit says

  118. The chamomile one on etsy is so beautiful!

  119. I would adore the Educa. I have two boys. I unfortunatly had to wean my second at 28 months in order to get pregnant (I know, but it really works for me as birth control!!!) and I just learned that I am pregnant. I’m hoping for a girl, but or course will be happy either way. Rose Quartz will be lovely for a little one to play with (even he is a boy 🙂 ).

  131. Katharine Tarkulich says

    I love them all, but Mama’s Heart is my favorite – I love the shape, the color, and the intent of the stone. I have a difficult time inviting abundance and asking for help when I need it (guilt issues) so maybe this stone could help me focus on that.

    Also, my seven month old has recently taken to practicing his pincer skills on my breast as he nurses, so it would be great to have something else for him to grab!

  132. From the site I love the Swirl nursing necklace in Fancy Jasper.

  133. I love the mothers heart!! I’ve been watching your website for a while now waiting to be able to buy a nursing necklace 🙂

    Has to be my favorite out of the shop 🙂 I love the blue

  137. I would love the Educa one, I love the meaning behind it! I went through many trials of IVF trying to get pregnant. I have my miracle little girl who is now 8 months old and still bf. We have bonded so much and she is now pulling on every necklace I put on trying to eat them. This would be such a perfect gift for us!!

  138. Love the Mama’s Heart necklace; Amethyst is my birthstone;)

  139. From the etsy shop I love the blue Howlite Baby heart necklace! Adorable.

  140. Rachel Brown says

  142. My favorite is mama’s heart…plus I could really use some inner peace!

  143. I like all of them! But the Sugar Plum is beautiful!! I am a mother of two, and Im breastfeeding my 9 month old son and I love it, but he gets so distracted!! He really isnt gaining weight like he should and I think its because he wont stay and breastfeed long enough b/c he wants to get down and crawl around and explore!!

    I’m 19 years old and my son Gage is 5 months old. My husband and I have never been happier! I can honestly say I adore breastfeeding and I plan to do so until he’s 12-18 months old. I love love love these necklaces. I’m so glad someone has thought of something so clever!

  174. I would love to win the sugar plum. I think it is one of my favourites from your shop.

  178. Hi! Love the Sugar plum one! it’s gorgeous..and thanks for all he tips and being a supporter of leakys!

  179. Katie Seelinger says

    I would love the Sugar Plum nursing necklace! With my husband and I both being full time students, anything help relieve tension, and remind me to take a moment to breathe while caring for a newborn and toddler, is always welcome. And, as we start applying to grad schools soon, a boost of self confidence is very much needed! As my little one just turned three months, the nursing fidgets are officially beginning 🙂

  180. Katie Seelinger says

    My two favorites are the balance nursing necklace and the moonwise menarche bracelet. We all could use a little hep balancing life’s craziness! And I would love to gift the moonwise necklace to my daughter someday! I look forward to making that a special, honorable time in her life.

  181. i would love to win the educa necklace! i am excited to start breastfeeding when baby is born (any day now…) and i love the idea of nursing necklaces. they are so beautiful :]

  182. Queen of the Nile is my FAV.

    I would love to win the sugar plum necklace. I love your jewelry!

  186. Jenae Huffman Proctor says

    I visited your Etsy shop again (one of my favoite Etsy shops). My favorite is the birth warrior bracelet because it was a gift my husband bought me for Mother’s day. I love wearing it and it is so beautifully made. I am also eyeing the Birth Wise bracelet and hope to own it one day.

  187. I loved them all!!! I would like to win Mama’s Heart!!!

  188. Wow just show the colors on Sugar Plum, it’s amazing!!

  195. Hello! I am nursing my 3rd babe, he is 7 months – constantly pulling my hair! I have been wanting to get a teething necklace for him to entertain himself with while nursing, and to play/teeth with while I hold or wear him during everyday activities. I really admire the Educa necklace. I used to wear a Rose Quartz crystal many years ago, I feel it helped me through many situations. Thanks for sharing your creativity. Happy Thanksgiving!

  196. SUGAR PLUM!

    for extra entry, I’m rather enchanted with this!


  197. I love the Educa one! I am a single mother of a 10 month old beautiful baby girl who fidgits like crazy while BFing. And I need peace and calm in my heart.
    Thank you for the chance!

  198. Also the Icicle, LightBlue Quartz necklace on etsy.com is BEAUTIFUL! Iam SO going to save up to get oneof those beauties.

  199. Mama’s Heart!!

  200. Heather Cheek says

    Mamas Heart is my favorite! But Sugar Plum is a close second! My 5mo is starting to become very distracted/interested in everything ELSE besides nursing! Drives me crazy! Thanks for the tips!!

  201. I love all three but the sugar plum really caught my eye 🙂

  202. Shannon Baird-Martin says

    I would love to win the sugar plum necklace. My other nursing necklaces are bright in color and I have a brown one. The sugar plum necklace would go with my black clothes and I LOVE the hints of color. My little guy is almost 6 mnths, EBF. Nursing necklaces are a must to keep him from pinching me, pulling my hair, etc.

  203. The Mama’s Heart necklace is my favorite out of the three here. Would be great for my little girl to play with while nursing and also grab and chew on when I am just holding her. She is six months old and we are on the look out for teeth.

  204. I think the butterfly fertility necklace is absolutley gorgeous 🙂

  205. They’re all beautiful, but the colors in Sugar Plum are sooo me. <3

  206. Krystle Missildine says

    I love all three, but my favorite is Sugarplum! My daughter would love pulling at it and holding it while she nurses. It is gorgeous!

  207. I love the Sugar plum the best.

  208. honestly I love them all! They’re so pretty. I suppose if I have to pick just one I’d pick sugar plum.. definitely need some tension release after having a nicu baby.

  209. I love all three, but if I have to chose it would be mama’s heart!

  210. Looked at the etsy site and I love the hemtite necklace because it is so classy and pretty I could see myself wearing this long after my nursing days are over. Also really liked the Celtic cross one, it doesn’t even look like a nursing necklace. Beautiful jewelry!

  211. I would love to win the Sugar Plum necklace!

  212. I <3 Sugar Plum (entry 1)

    • Rebecca Lynn says

      I love the Educa necklace or the Mama’s heart. My husband just purchased me the Sugar Plum, and I love, love, love it!

  213. instantly fell in love with the-Nursing Necklace – Black Pearl – 40mm Hematite Nursing Mom Necklace

  214. I would looove the educa, and they are all beautiful

  215. I am absolutely in love with the sugar plum necklace. It is sooo beautiful. I wish I had the talent to make things like that. Awesome job. And thanks for supporting Leakies 🙂

  216. I’d love any of the necklaces. I went to the Etsy shop and just couldn’t decide. Too many pretties. 🙂

  217. Rebecca Lynn says

    Entry 2 – I love the fertility necklaces, and hope hubbie gets me one for my up coming b-day or christmas!

  218. Valli Brauer says

    I love the sugar plum and the mamas heart, although with the number of comments already, I don’t think I have much chance at winning one. I know what I will be asking for Christmas now. Beautiful!!!!!

  219. Alexandria Sauls says

    I absolutely LOVE the Educa! Smooth transitions, peace and calm are definitely appreciated in my life.

  220. Nefertiti Nursing Necklace

    From the Etsy shop, this is lovely! (entry 2)

  221. I would love the mother’s heart most although they are all lovely! From her shop, I really love the mama goddess necklaces!

  222. Rochelle Hill says

    I LOVE the sugar plum. Thankyou for the chance to win one of your amazing necklaces!

  223. I would LOVE the mom’s heart one! My nursling loves playing with stuff when he’s drinking and I have a ring one already…the heart is sweet!

  224. I really love the sugar plum necklace the most.. It looks real classy and easy to wear with anything. The real thing that drew me to it tho is that it is a “stone is thought to release tension, increase self-confidence and invite joy into our lives.” … I could really benefit from that!

  225. Ashley adams says

    I would like any of them but would love the momas heart.

  226. my favorite item from etsy was the mama bear!! protective and loving all in one!

  227. Valli Brauer says

    I absolutely love everything but my favorites are the ones with butterflies!
    entry 2

  228. They are all beautiful! Purple is my favorite color and I LOVE the Mama’s Heart necklace. It just might be the perfect thing to distract my 10 month old baby girl from all of the pinching she’s been doing lately!

  229. Wow… that’s a load of comments. I can’t imagine that I have any chance at all to win, but I truly love these necklaces. Sugar plum is my first choice – I love the jasper, the rich purple tones & diversity of colour/textures. I do also really like the purple heart, and amythyst is very important for calming & things I need support with. Good luck to everyone.

  230. kris walker says

    It’s funny… all the ones that really appealed to me had the boosting powers for things I needed! Sugar Plum is still my favourite. I did also love the icicle one & the pretty ones created for Hallowe’en. Thank you TLB & Wild Arts for this contest!

  231. I love the sugar plum necklace! Who couldn’t use more joy and less tension?!

  232. From your etsy shop my favorite item is this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/86187237/gaia-nursing-necklace-50mm-lapis-lazuli?ref=cat_gallery_11 because I love the colors!

  233. The sugar plum is gorgeous!

  234. I like the purple necklace and i nursed my first son and im currently nursing my second. Have a happy thanksgiving everyone. Goodluck on winnings.

  235. Loooooove the sugar plum necklace!

  236. Ashley Waselick says

    I love all 3 of these necklaces, but Sugar Plum is my favourite. Not only do I love the colouring on it, but I desperately need some tension release and extra joy brought into my life right now. We lost my father in law (who lived with us) unexpectedly a month ago, and it’s been really tough since then.

  237. I love Educa. Rose quartz is my favorite stone

  238. Ashley Waselick says

    Ok, I was just on the etsy page, and The Birth Warrior bracelet is one of my favorite items there, but they are all gorgeous!

  239. Kimberley Crook says

    What a good idea

    I love that the Educa necklace encourages peace and calm and if anyone needs some of that it’s me 🙂
    I’m currently (literally!) nursing my 3rd child after being unable to nurse my 2 older girls past 5 weeks so didn’t get to this fiddling, scratching phase so I think a necklace like this woul help both me and my baby boy.
    Thanks for the opportunity and support x

  240. Samantha V. says

    I love the sugarplum necklace! But they are all beautiful, so honestly I’d be ecstatic to get any!!!

  242. Samantha V. says

    My fave item on etsy is the diamond necklace in fancy jade….think that’s going to have to go on my Xmas list 🙂

  243. I really like the Sugar Plum necklace! They are all beautiful but the Sugar Plum and Morhers Heart ones are my favorites!

  244. Hi, my favourite necklace is the heart but I like them all! I am in desperate need as my 7mo daughter keeps pinching my arms while feeding! I need a good distraction for her

  245. Wendi Segulin says

    I would love to win the Sugar Plum necklace. I also like the Mama’s Heart necklace. These would be perfect for me and my 6 month old son.

  246. Mama Amandier says

    They’re lovely! I’d love to win the Mama’s Heart necklace. Inner peace and abundance would definitely be useful around here 😉

  247. Mama Amandier says

    I’ve just been over to the Etsy store and I love the goddesses. I’m thinking of sending the Quan Yin necklace to my mum for Christmas, she loves Buddhist art and goddess art. She breastfed me for 3 and a half years and thanks to her even when I had my eldest daughter at 19 I never had the smallest doubt in my ability to breastfeed!

  248. i love the sugar plum necklace in this giveaway! it’s so unique and subtly catching!

  249. I am in the mood for something holiday-ish and they have the perfect set: Holly Jolly Nursing Necklace Set!

  250. I ADORE sugar plum! My daughter is six months old today.. Is been very interesting to nurse a face graber!! My son never did that. She’s very challenging to nurse in pubic and rips my nursing cover right off. I would definitely love one of these to help with these challenges 🙂

  251. Melanie dalton says

    I would love to win the sugar plum necklace! It’s beautiful!

  252. They are all beautiful but I have to go with sugar plum. Who couldn’t use a little more joy in their life?

  253. Connected nursing necklace. Love it!

  254. I absolutely love the Sugar Plum necklace, but that seems to be quite a popular one. 🙂 So I’ll also add that since I love the color purple, Mama’s Heart also tickles my fancy. 🙂 Neat idea and pretty stones!

  255. Oh my gosh, you expect us to pick from all those lovely stones?! The roses and celtic knots are just gorgeous, but color wise I think I fell in love with Gaia’s Heart over there. 🙂

  256. All three of these necklaces are beautiful, but given my choice I would have to go with Sugar Plum ;^)

  257. I adore the Wild Mama Arts Etsy shop and I think most of my Christmas wish list is items from that shop – lol!! I do love the Celtic Knot Nursing Necklace but I think my most favorite is “Live Long and Breastfeed” 😀

  258. kim d'angelo says

    All of these necklaces are absolutely gorgeous, but given the choice I would choose Sugar Plum, the colouring is amazing!!

  259. MAMAS Heart !!! Love it second choice is Educa !!! Beautiful necklaces. I have one nursing necklace from another site and I love it . Want to order another one so would love to try one from this store !! They look wonderful ! I currently nurse my 5 month old.

  260. kim d'angelo says

    Searching their shop, I could happily own ALL of these items…
    But being realistic – I love the mama bears!!!!
    What a great shop!!

  261. What a great idea! I know about the “popping off” .. even if I don’t win a necklace I’m def going to buy one in hopes of drawing her attention in. If I had to pick just one 😉 I’d choose sugar plum bc it’d keep her attention. Very cool choices! Thanks for a chance to win 1.

  262. The Sugar Plum necklace is gorgeous!

    I’m currently nursing a 15mo old who just recently started pinching my boob. A nursing necklace would be a perfect distraction for her!

  263. The Etsy store is fantastic. I love the Flutterbye fertility bracelet & earring set. We’re TTC for #2 and I love the idea of fertility jewelry! I also really like the Labrynth bracelet that is made to be worn during labor & birth. The earthy colors are fantastic!

  264. Sugar plum!

  265. I love the amythyst heart is my favourite! But they’re all beautiful! x

  266. Stephanie Amsel says

  268. Amanda Wilcox says

    My favorite from the etsy site is the peace nursing necklace! I love what it stands for and it’s so pretty!

  269. My favorite is the Sugar Plum one…the colors are beautiful! Though all three are beautiful, I’d be happy with any!

    Is the one I LOVE off the Etsy page, the colors are beautiful, (blue is my favorite!) and it would be appealing to my grabby 8 month old :))

  283. Sugar plum is lovely. 🙂

  284. From your etsy shop, I love the Birth Warrior Bracelet.

  285. Mary Ann Sandel says
  286. This one has to be my fave from the site though, amazing colour and I’m sure it would get some admiring looks 🙂

  287. Loving all of them, but the Sugar Plum would have to be my favorite!

  288. I have to go with mothers heart. I am most drawn to amethyst though circles are closer to my “style” amethyst and the quality of the stone are more important to me than shape. They are all beautiful. You are amazing at what you do! As always thanks Jessica for this great giveaway!

  289. lexis Taylor says

    Sugar plumb is lovely. My DD was awful and my husband thought it was the funniest thing in the world to watch her pop off everytime she heard something different. So was so fidigity and curious. I had no clue what a nursing necklace was. I will have one for they baby I am carrying now
    We are due in may and I can’t wait.

  290. Nadiene Gill says

    Sugar Plum is just beautiful like all of her necklaces! <3

  291. Although I LOVE all three, Mama’s Heart is my favorite. Good luck to all!! love.

  292. I visited Wild Mother Arts etsy page and there are so many gorgeous things. I still love the sugar Plum necklace, but the Guardian Angel necklace and Babyheart necklace are so pretty too! Beautiful stuff there! Thanks for the chance to win.

  293. Kate Hayward says

  299. Courtney mcclenahan says

    Sugar plum is beautiful

  300. Sugar plum!

  301. Sugar Plum!

  302. Choosing between the 3 was hard- trying to choose from etsy was worse! I think my pick is http://www.etsy.com/listing/66335695/flutterbye-fertility-bracelet-moonstone

  303. Sugar Plum is the one I would choose. They are all beautiful though!

  304. I AM IN LOVE WITH ALL OF THESE! But I think the Sugarplum is by far my favorite! They are all gorgeous pieces, but I think that one is PERFECT. <3

  305. I have been nursing my baby, Genevieve, for almost ten beautiful months. I love the heart shaped necklace.

  306. Katie Santos says

  308. They are all beautiful, but I’d especially love to win the Sugar Plum. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  309. Ainsley D. Peck says

    I absolutely adore the sugar plum necklace. I love all of the attributes related to the stone itself(I have major issues with self-confidence and tension/anxiety) and the colors are kind of eclectic and aesthetically pleasing to me. I have a little nursling at home that loves to play with all of my necklaces, but they are all so fragile that I have to be careful wearing them while he is nursing. I am sure he would appreciate such a sturdy, beautiful necklace built with mama’s and babies in mind! <3

  310. I think Sugar Plum just edges out Mama’s heart as my favorite.

  311. You have so many beautiful pieces on your Etsy site… one of my favorites is the Woodland Nursing Necklace.

  312. I absolutely love the Sugar Plum and the Educa. I also love the qualities of the different stones and where the names comes from. I just moved to a new country 6 months ago, and could use some help boosting confidence and easing the transition for the whole family. Fingers crossed!

  313. I love the Sugar Plum necklace! Perfect formy son’s little fingers while I am nursing him. He is my 3rd and I only wish I had known about this beautiful pieces of baby-friendly art years ago! Thank you for sharing your gifts with us.

  314. I Love the sugar plum necklace, I like saying it’s name it reminds me of sugar plums dancing…….Beautiful Necklaces!

  315. I am drawn to the red jasper flame heart on your etsy shop…Im definitely sharing the etsy website with my hubby for Christmas gift ideas!

  316. Rebecca White says

    Liked on FB. Thank you again for being a Leaky supporter!

  317. Rebecca White says

    My favorite from your etsy shop is:

    I like all of your fertility necklaces (possibly bc I have a dual diagnosis infertility (PCOS/endometriosis)), but this one the best as it is SO feminine. 🙂

  318. Kayleigh Murphy says

  336. Mama’s Heart definitely! Being a Mommy of two, one of which I was fortunate enough to nurse, the other I did not receive enough support following her birth to stick with it…it’s truly the love in a mother’s heart that keeps her head done and pushing through the beginning struggles.

  337. I adore the sugar plum! It’s gorgeous and with a thirteen yr. old, twin five yr. olds and a four month old, I could definitely use a little help with tension! 😀
