Designer of the Week - HARPER+HUDSON

Today I have the pleasure of introducing a stylish and practical collection of nontoxic chewable jewellery for modern mums by HARPER+HUDSON. The range is designed by Jennifer Admon, a dietician with a special interest in children’s health and wellbeing. Today we review the vibrant Oliver necklace in ravishing raspberry and lime.

The Product Review

I was originally drawn to HARPER+HUDSON by the sea of heavenly hues that grasped my gaze when I first landed on their website. Shades of indigo, lilac, turquoise, honeydew, candy, and lime! Several days later, a lovely Oliver necklace landed on my doorstep, and I had the chance to read about Jennifer’s no-nasties ethos.

Jennifer’s vision comes together in a teething necklace for little ones that is stylish for mums, soft on little gums, and completely free from any horrible chemicals. The size and shape of the beads make this necklace perfect for little hands and mouths. It’s made from 100% food grade silicone and you can and throw it in the dishwasher for a good clean, genius!

The verdict… fashion meets function.

The Indie Label

Creative mind behind the HARPER+HUDSON collection, Jennifer, developed the idea for her teething necklaces through her work as a dietitian. She works with babies, toddlers and mums on issues surrounding nutrition and feeding, and over the years began to look at the teething stage.

Pondering the need for little ones to constantly suck and chew to sooth their gums, and noticing how they often tugged at mum’s jewellery, she put the two together and HARPER+ HUDSON was born. She explains, “I set out to create my own line of vibrant, colourful jewels for mums that double as teething tools for babies”.

The Creative Mind

Jennifer lists her inspiration as summery bright vibrant hues, chunky jewels and of course the sweet little ones in our lives who just love a pop of colour. She says, “As all mummies know, babies love to put everything in their mouths – especially during the teething phase. Often it’s mum’s jewels that end up in bub’s grasp and straight into their little mouths – the concern being they may break or contain harmful chemicals. Our jewels are chewable, washable, eco-friendly, and waterproof.”

The Whimsical Spirit

Here’s three fun facts about Jennifer (in her own words):

1. My favourite food is gelato (even though I am a dietitian!)
2. I am obsessed with gorgeous nail polish – colour of the moment for Winter is crimson.
3. Favourite place to travel is Cape Town in South Africa.
