Holiday Wish Guide: Unique Gift - Mama Beads & Baby Baubles

Written by

If you're looking for a unique gift that also makes a great stocking stuffer this Holiday season, it's no secret that jewelry can often fit that bill... for kids, too! Even better is when you can put a handmade spin on some pop culture icons for a design that's both familiar and different. Mama Beads & Baby Baubles is a small business based in Pennsylvania, producing handmade Bubblegum Bracelets and Necklaces, with custom designs featuring semi-precious and glass beads available as well. Owner Amy Martin spotted The Rock Daughters' fashion sense a few months back and sent us a few of her creations. We liked them so much that I'm including them as an official pick in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!

Amy has dozens of styles available, but in our collection we have a few versions of her "Superheroes are for Girls Too!" collection (Marvel, DC and TMNT) and a version of her "Little Princess" Chunky Bracelets. Using the drop-downs in the Etsy shop, you can choose and customize the size, characters, and colors involved. And they're reasonably-priced as well.

"Many years ago when I lived in Hawaii, I made jewelry using small glass & seed beads and sold them at craft fairs around the island to make some "spending money". In the evenings I worked as a line cook in various restaurants. Flash forward 20 years plus, I am now a retired Executive Chef diagnosed with MS, turned stay-at-home-mom, I've been looking for both a creative outlet and a way to make a little "spending money" for my family. That brings us front and center to the opening of Mama Beads & Baby Baubles! Let me create a one of a kind piece for you and/or your little one." Amy Martin, Owner
