When I was a little girl, I loved reading books like Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series. I also loved having tea parties and would spend hours having tea with my miniature tea set. One of my favorite childhood memories is of having a tea party with my grandmother while chatting about which of the March sisters from Little Women we liked the best. I remember that Nanny loved the bookish tomboy, Jo, while I have always gravitated towards Beth and Meg. This memory went on to inspired my popular Novel Tea Necklace series and whenever I make a Little Women Novel Tea Necklace, I think of those afternoons spent in my grandmother’s kitchen as a little girl, having tea and talking about books. This is why I am so excited to announce that I have just added new Child – Sized Novel Tea Necklaces to my Etsy shop.
Inspired by great children’s literature, these new child’s tea party necklaces make great holiday gifts for little girls who love to read books and who would love to have tea parties with famous fictional characters from wonderful kid’s books like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, The Chronicles of Narnia, Peter Pan, and The Secret Garden.
Like the original adult size necklaces, each of my Novel Tea Necklaces for girls comes with a book page jewelry charm with text from the book, a glass vial of real tea leaves, and your choice of teacup and teapot charms. However, the Children’s Novel Tea Necklaces come on a 14 – 17″ silver-filled necklace chain that can be adjusted in length as your child grows so she can continue to wear and enjoy it for years to come.
One of the things that I love about these charming tea necklaces is just how customizable they are. You can get a very different look just by mixing and matching different charms together. I am the oldest of four sisters who, like Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy from Little Women, each had very different personalities and interests so something like this would have been great since we each could have had our own, one of a kind necklace made just for us.
Another thing I love is that they come in both adult and child sizes so you can create a special mother daughter gift set to celebrate the classic books that get passed down from generation to generation. A matching set of Novel Tea Necklaces would be perfect for someone like my best friend who is currently reading her way through the Narnia books with her daughter and I know that my grandmother and I would have loved having matching Little Women necklaces as a memento of all those wonderful tea parties we had together.
My Child’s Novel Tea Necklaces would make great Christmas gifts for young readers – either on their own or paired with a special keepsake book. I will be adding to the collection over the next few months and would love to hear which children’s book characters you think I should invite to tea. In the meanwhile, you can see my current selection of handmade tea jewelry for girls here in my Etsy shop.
