Birth Designs was founded in early 2001 when leading up to the birth of my first child, I could not find the jewelry or greeting card designs I wanted in order to express the joy I was feeling. Later, I was again frustrated when I could not find a quality “nursing necklace” (a necklace worn when breastfeeding or bottle-feeding a child to help distract and entertain little hands). My passion renewed as I began researching and testing different stones, designs, and stringing materials that were suitable for nursing necklaces. Today, I am proud to offer much-tested, beautiful, and functional nursing necklaces in a variety of styles – including our patent pending convertible necklaces!

That was just the beginning of Birth Designs, however. In 2003, was launched. I now offer hundreds of styles of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, anklets and bangles for women, men, and children. Inspiration comes from many likely and unlikely things – the colors of a tree in fall, the rosy cheeks of a newborn baby, the graceful form of an accomplished gymnast, the richness of freshly plowed earth. Sometimes delicate and soft, sometimes bold and strong, always classic and unique – I am proud to offer both new and age-old styles and techniques.

I have studied under many talented silversmithing instructors and jewelry artists, including Mark Lareau, Lisa Claxton, Sharilyn Miller, Lisa Niven Kelly, Eni Oken, and Connie Fox amongst others. I love the process of designing, pounding and shaping metal, and watching metal clay burn away to pure silver. In my designs, you will find pure metals, such as sterling (.925) and fine (.999) silver, 14K gold fill, and vermeil (22K gold plated sterling silver). For embellishment, I mainly use semi-precious gemstones, genuine Swarovski crystals, and custom-made lampwork glass by a variety of artists around the globe.

I am a stay at home mother of a tenacious one year old! I love raising my little one! When i am not otherwise occupied I try to find as much time as I can during each day to make things… sew, paint, knit, draw, create designs. You name it I can craft it! I have a degree in ceramics, though not much time these days to play with clay (unless you count play dough). Anyway, i love to make stuff and i hope you enjoy what i post!

Hi, Im a mom and know what it feels like to be nauseated the whole pregnancy! I was not one of the fortunate ones who did not get sick, so having a cute comfy tee that will last all 9 months was a must. I was frustrated everyday finding something easy to wear as my belly grew. I love novelty and then added designs to me tees. I hope you love wearing them as much as I did!!
Aloha and Enjoy.

Belly Bands fit most women dress sizes 4-12. If you want a bigger size, there is a listing for custom sizing, I just need a hip measurement. If you are smaller, just leave a note to seller at checkout to take it in.

Maternity Belly Bands – Lilac Blue $10.00cutie


These things are wonderful and so useful. Belly Bands are great for that time between “my pants won’t button” and “my maternity clothes finally fit”. They not only cover unzipped pants, but lengthen shirts that get too short. A belly band can stretch your regular wardrobe a little longer and that layered look is so in style. Another use for the belly band is to hold in that baby fat after delivery, or as a tube top or nursing bra at night. They work great to keep your tummy covered, even if you aren’t pregnant.

These belly bands are stretchy to last while you grow and come in lots of colors. They are made of sturdy dancewear fabric and doubled over so that they will be comfortable and hold up your pants better than bands made of single jersey knit cotton. If this item is a gift, let me know and I’ll add a free gift tag.

Belly Bands fit most women size 4-14. If you are smaller, I can make a custom band for you based on the measurement around the part of your hip were your legs bend, around the bottom of the zipper of your jeans. Round down an inch, you’ll want the band to be snug to stay in place. The rise of the band is approx 11 inches and may be baggy on top at first, but this is to allow room as your baby grows. In the meantime you can fold it down or scrunch it if you find it uncomfortable 🙂
