Harmony Ball

All about wardrobe staples here today, especially this classic striped tee by the boho masters at Bohemian Traders.  The best striped tee I've come across, beautiful soft, thick, quality fabric and the perfect amount of swing.

My necklace is particularly interesting today.  The pendant is a Harmony Ball, and inside there is a small bell that chimes with movement, just like a tiny wind charm! Traditionally, in Balinese and Mayan cultures, Harmony Ball pendants are worn by pregnant women on a long necklace so the pendant rests against their baby bump.  It is said that from about 16-20 weeks the baby can hear the soothing sound of the soft chimes.  After bub is born, traditionally the mother will shorten the necklace so that it can be played with by the baby whilst breastfeeding or rocking to sleep.  Of course, the sound of the harmony ball will be a familiar sound associated with warmth and comfort, just like their mothers soothing voice. The harmony ball then becomes a precious keepsake passed on from mother to daughter.

The Harmony Ball itself is beautiful and of very high quality.  Made of sterling silver it has a lovely weight in your hand and chimes prettily.  It arrived in a little blue gift box with a 45cm necklace length.  A longer necklace is also available which I'm wearing above.

I should add, these pendants are a beautiful fashion statement of their own, with or without a baby bump or baby! have over 250 Harmony Ball designs to choose from, plus heaps of information about the benefits of Harmony Balls and tips for spotting a fake.  Birth stone models are also available, so you could wear your own birth stone, of that of the due month of the baby if pregnant.  Such a lovely idea don't you think!

Oh, and no I'm not pregnant ;)
