Stay-On Baby Anklet Baltic Amber and Beaked Hazel wood

I wanted to make Hazelwood and Baltic Amber anklet for our infant, Angel, but ran into the problem that infants can't keep socks on, let alone anklets.  I had to come up with an entirely new invention, the Stay-On "Angel Baby" Anklet.  They are costom, but I like to but on 3-4 hazelwood beads (on a baby, a little goes a long way, I'm discovering)  and 2 rows of baltic amber.  It has a hook and loop (like velcro) closure, for a secure hold.   We use very strong cable, and 2 clamps on each end to hold the anklet together.  Sturdiness is very important in baby anklets, because 2 and 3 month old babies are constantly kicking at their ankles.

Why Amber?  Amber (Baltic) helps with teething pain (and some other kinds of pain--it helps me with my wrist pain).  I will post more info on that later

Why Beaked Hazelwood?  Baby had some eczema behind her ears, and it seems to have helped a little with her spitting up (can help with reflux), also her diaper rashes aren't as severe.  She was able to use cloth diapers, when her skin had been too sensitive.

Please message me if you are interested in purchasing a Stay on Anklet.


  1. Today we know that it is actually the fossilized resin of ancient trees. However, the beauty, uniqueness and mystical appearance of holds as much appeal today as in times of old. In fact, many people still wear amber beads for good luck.

  2. This is such a clever idea. I've heard of baby bangles before, but I haven't gotten any for my granddaughter, because I was afraid it wouldn't stay on. It looks like you've solved that problem.
