The necklace project started about half a year after my son was born. Teething necklaces are becoming more and more popular, but being someone who enjoys DIY I went looking to find the suppliers for silicon beads, wood beads, and the string and clasps. And so, I started buying my own beads and string and putting them together during nap-time (though really I should have been working on homework, cleaning, or many other needed activities). But it was relaxing and I loved doing it.
I began giving them to friends as shower gifts, and then something weird began: people started to ask me where I got them and/or if they could buy them from me… and there rest is history.
