Lennah Designs Necklace Review & Giveaway


Since becoming a mom, I have to admit I rarely take time to make myself "pretty". I have my comfy clothes (jeans, t-shirts, and yoga pants) that have become a staple for me. And I cannot tell you the last time I dressed up or wore make up. And don't get me started on wearing jewelry. I think the only jewelry that I wear on a regular basis is my wedding rings. I love all the fun, and pretty jewelry that is available but with having a 21 month old and a 3.5 year old does not make it easy to wear these pretty things. Children love to pull on necklaces, and earrings, etc and I just cannot afford to replace broken jewelry. Well, I recently came across a wonderful company that helps Mom's feel beautiful once again!

Lennah Designs is a Canadian company that makes necklaces that fit the lifestyle and needs of today's mom! Here is what Stella, owner of Lennah Designs says about how she developed this wonderful company:

Lennah Designs was created during our breastfeeding journey. With the constant pinching and poking, I abandoned all of my jewelry including a special necklace that was given to me by my mother. This, along with lack of sleep and not packing away my maternity clothes led to many frumpy looking and feeling days. I have always loved painting, photography, sewing, designing, and all things crafty so I decided to make a sturdy necklace my daughter could pull on while doubling as an attempt to look civilized and presentable. What I didn’t realize was how something as simple as wearing a necklace lifted my spirits! Not to mention it was a great distraction for my daughter during feedings.
It is our hope to spread the joy and share our necklaces at Lennah Designs with as many mamas as we can!  Whether you’re breastfeeding or bottle feeding, or simply around infants, our stylish and trendy necklaces will be one of those items you don’t know how you lived without!  Our necklaces also make great gifts for a new mama, grandma, or aunt, and your favourite caregiver.

Our purpose is to complete a full circle – a portion of the proceeds will be donated to SickKids Foundation (The Hospital for Sick Children) to invest in health and scientific advancements to improve the health and lives of children in Canada and around the world. We cannot put a price to a child’s life, but we can make a difference and contribute to the cost of healthcare research.

Stella at Lennah Designs graciously sent me a double strand necklace to test and review. I received the Olivia Necklace and I love it! Isn't it pretty!


The colors of stones in the necklace are turquoise, amber and chocolate, and these color combinations are some of my favorites, so this was a huge hit right away when I opened the package. The necklace came beautifully wrapped and I was extremely impressed with the sturdiness of the necklace itself. It really can be tugged and pulled with no damage occuring. Amazing!

What I absolutely love about Lennah Designs is that you custom make your necklace by choosing the color, pendant (donut, pie, or rectangle), and length (20", 24", 28", 32" and 36"). You can even choose a double strand, as I did (the inside strand is 2" shorter than outside strand). Prices start at $20 and all necklaces are made in Canada.

Our necklaces are only made with high quality non-toxic beads that have passed safety test standards for handling by children!  The beads are strung on a strong cotton cord and include a special breakaway safety clasp that pops open when pulled to prevent the necklace from breaking.

As previously mentioned, I have not worn much jewelry since becoming a mom three years ago, but I have to say, I have worn this necklace at least four times since receiving it two weeks ago. I wear it with just about everything and it makes me feel so pretty! Even on my frumpy days, as soon as I put this necklace on, my mood immediately improves!

Thank you to Lennah Designs for helping not only nursing moms, but all moms feel so much better about themselves!

My other favorites from Lennah Designs are the Isabella and Kayla necklaces, as these are the names of my children.


One other plus...the customer service I received was incredible! All emails were answered within an acceptable time frame and I received my necklace within a week of shipping. I also love that Lennah Designs is a Canadian owned and operated company.

I highly recommend Lennah Designs for all moms! These necklaces will make the perfect baby shower kids, or new mom gifts! Also, these would also make wonderful Mother's Day gifts too!
