That keychain is adorable, I may need to copy cat that! I think mine are 3&4 amethyst (green and purple). Can't wait to check the mail and see if mine are here.

I had heavy duty thread that I used since some of the holes were really small the regular roping that you would use to make one is too thick. The heavy duty thread seems to be working great though!

Mine was number 11/12. I have other beads at my house, so I might make a full necklace and centerpiece the beads given, just thinking....

Oh NO, I think mine was 19. Is there no hole!?!?!?!?!?!??!!?

I picked Jade as my gemstone of choice to send out. It was believed that Jade placed on the belly of a baby could cure colic, so it is my hope that this (albeit) tiny piece of jade is enough to bring colic-free luck to you and babe!

Also, I heard that in Asian countries each baby is given a piece of Jade at birth to carry with them for life. So, this is my little token to each of you to carry with you as a memento of your wee one

Uh oh, I don't see mine in either of those. They were small, oval, blue/turquoise beads.

I'm probably making a bracelet, or just a string like the one I have on my key chain. I was thinking about putting it in a shadow box with the other "birth stuff" after baby is here.

Mine is #8... I picked it because I call my baby Bug, and the butterfly was the only "bug" I could find..

I think the keychain is a fabolous idea.... I'm undecided on what I'm goin to do yet... But I will be keeping that idea in my head!

Mine are the turtles #9 & #10 (unless someone else chose turtles too)
Turtles have always been my favourite animals.
In some cultures, turtles represent longevity & protection because of their shells.
Native Americans believe that the world is on the back of a giant turtle, so the turtle represents Mother Earth.
I planned on making a bracelet or keychain with mine. I haven't received them yet. I'm excited!

Mine are 16 and 17. I sent two because they were so small and I got a decent price on Amazon. I can't remember 100% what kind they are but they are supposed to help with pain management. I thought that was a good fit. I will have to find a better description later

Woohoo, I got my pretties today Thank you miss Whitney and everyone, it made my day pulling that out of the mailbox! I definitely needed a pick me up. I made a bracelet with nylon thread (really durable). I am super neurotic about things matching/being even so I patterned them singles, doubles, singles, etc. Nerd alert

I got one that color but it isn't shaped like a 7 and it has a hole. Maybe it got mushed in the mail?

I dunno?!?! I checked them before I sent them out. The Rock Emporium where we got them from only had Jade beads in the tiny size or huge ones like the size of 1/2 a golf ball, so I opted for ones that wouldn't weigh 9lbs when on the string... maybe I should have gone larger
