Superhero Designs necklaces


I don't really buy jewelry. I've tried twice to pierce my ears, and over time I always seem to let the holes grow in again. Over the years I've owned a series of big rings — the ones that make a statement with size and color on the right hand — and then put them away. About the only piece of jewelry I wear is my plain silver wedding band now.

And two necklaces by Andrea at Superhero Designs.

Last year, I fell in love with Andrea's sense of color and whimsy, her open-hearted writing on her blog, and the pictures of her baby son. This woman knows how to live, imperfectly, and out loud. After reading her posts for a time, and feeling a sense of communion, I ordered a necklace, for my wedding with the Chef.

I chose one called Grass and Sky. Blue sky is one of the symbols of our love, and we would be married in our backyard, on the grass (and eventually in bare feet). Nature and connection. It felt right.

When it arrived, that necklace felt even more right. Andrea had found a gorgeous glass stone, in the shape of a red heart. It dangled down from my throat. I fell in love.

And in the flurry and funny details going wrong the morning of the wedding, I forgot to put it on. Damn.

But I have worn it on every special occasion since. At book launch parties, and speaking engagements, and television appearances — and more important, private moments, like the first time we visited our obstetrician to see if everything was okay with our Little Bean.

So I figured that one necklace I adore, and knew I would be wearing for the rest of my life, was probably enough.

But then I saw that Andrea was making this bullseye necklace. That one had to be mine as well.

If you don't know why the bullseye means so much to me, read this post.

I have a feeling that this plain, silver necklace is what I will be wearing when our baby is born into the world.

Great recommend! I love my Super Hero necklace. Great for gifts too. Sometimes I think having one makes you part of a super special cool kids club, in a good way.

I found my beloved Superhero necklace through your site, Shauna. I am so in love. You may not remember me, but I was the student at the Whole Foods New York class who was your "Superhero twin!"

When I saw the necklace but before I read the older blog entry about the bullseye, I thought about what the significance of this particular symbol might be for you. What I see when I look at it is Bean in the center, surrounded as she is right now by your body, and Chef's arms completely encircling you both.
I wish you an easy time as you embrace the sacred moment when you change from a couple to a family.
