Tough as a Mother jewelry


So you’re a mother heading to the airport with tiny tots. There’s so much to do beginning with packing all their toys. Then toting them through TSA while pulling a giant stroller and carry-ons. And comes the fear of them crying once on board.

What’s a parent to do? Well according to Jennifer Cervantes, mom founder and CEO of Tough as a Mother Tribe, get gemstones. Cervantes creates a jewelry line especially for mothers. The beautiful necklaces and bracelets utilize  the power and meanings of various gemstones. Cervantes claims that her designs help mom stay during trying times.

 Stress reducers

“Being a mother already comes with its own unique challenges without the added factors of traveling. Which is why we offer a “Balanced Mama” clear quartz necklace, Cervantes explains The designs are  minimalist in style so as not to get in the way. And, quartz  helps you embrace your patience and energy while dealing with even the longest flight delay.”

The power of gemstones

Tough as a Mother jewelryCervantes’ chalcedony stone necklace intends to keep you calm  a cucumber when the baby’s tummy starts bubbling with only one diaper left on the six-hour flight.

Improve intuition

Tough as a Mother gemstone jewelry“While being on the move with children, keeping them within an arm’s reach is a job all in of itself,” continues Cervantes.
“Throw in having to read a map, plus use a different language you haven’t spoken since middle school, and you’ll feel like your brain is about to blow a gasket!” For these times she recommends her “Good Vibes Mama” labradorite stone necklace. It’s  popular for the adventurous moms because it promotes strength and perseverance, while also having an iconic look.

Creating a Mother Tribe

“I discovered my true calling to make meaningful jewelry for mothers when I myself hit my lowest point. As a stressed-out teacher, my body finally started shutting down, reflecting the tremendous stress I was under. I stopped being able to nurse my five-month-old, and that’s when I knew I needed a change. And that my calling wasn’t in being a frazzled, at-my-wit’s-end mom through these tough but precious years. “

Cervantes adds that she  utilizes the power and meanings of gemstones to design pieces that honor the most joyous and raw parts of motherhood. When you purchase  Tough as a Mother jewelry pieces, you quietly unite with mothers across the world through our common bond.”

Sampling the gems

Although the Travel Diva isn’t a mom, I wanted to pass this on for those of you who are.  Especially after receiving one of her quartz necklaces. As soon as I saw it I did feel relief from the stress of the world. She might be on to something.
