Known for soothing fussy, teething babies, genuine baltic amber jewelry from Inspired by Finn is now at Pinstripes and Polkadots!

Baltic amber is not a stone but a fossilized tree resin, long used as a natural remedy and curative for many ailments. The Baltic amber from Inspired by Finn has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature, making it unique and special. Succinic Acid has been used in Europe as a natural antibiotic for centuries.
Authentic Baltic Amber Necklaces from Inspired by Finn are handcrafted and made of the most esteemed amber in the world. The necklace fastens with a screw clasp and the necklace cord is knotted between each bead. Be sure to measure for the length you need.
How does it work? When baltic amber is worn against the skin, the warmth from the skin releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. Baltic Amber necklaces for children are often referred to as a "teething necklace" but are not meant to be chewed but worn! Those who routinely wear Baltic Amber have seen great results in reducing the symptoms of and associated with:
Pain Relief (especially teething!)
How to use: The amber must have continuous and direct contact with the skin so be sure to tuck it underneath your shirt. Wear the jewelry for as long as possible so for children, remove the jewelry while the child sleeps. Some parents will remove the necklace and wrap around the baby's ankle and secure/hide with a sock. Do not chew amber.
Generally, raw, lighter colors of amber possess the greatest amount of succinct acid and thus provide the most healing benefit.
Sizing: As long as the necklace is not too snug, the length is a personal preference. The necklace should be at least 2 inches longer than the diameter of the neck. It should not fit like a choker. Some choose a length that adds more than 2 inches to give more growing room, and others choose to add no more than 2 inches so there is less room for their child to fool with the necklace, bring it to their mouth, etc. Amber is soft and not meant to withstand the compression of being chewed on.
A convenient way to measure is to drape a tape measurer or a piece of string around the neck to see what length you are most comfortable with.
These necklaces are measured prior to shipment by holding it in the air against a ruler. Inspired by Finn does not pull on the necklace to straighten it out any (often different methods are used). Because of how they measure, these necklaces can produce variations of up to 1/2". Also, it is not unusual for necklaces to stretch a bit in length over time if the necklace comes under (tugging) pressure.
Care: Clean with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Avoid detergents and oils.
Warning: Necklace contains small parts; Children should be supervised when wearing jewelry and it should be removed when the child sleeps.
