All About Amber...What is Baltic Amber?
Baltic amber, is a fossilized tree resin originating from the Baltic Sea Region of Lithuania, near Russia.
How Does Baltic Amber work?
Baltic amber when worn against the skin, warms slightly releasing it's natural oils into the system. The therapeutic compound within the oils of Baltic amber is succinic acid (succinum) which is present in the human body naturally. Succinic acid is an all natural pain analgesic, or pain reliever. So introducing Baltic amber to the body is essentially giving your body a boost of it's own natural pain-fighting agents! While all amber contains succinic acid, only Baltic amber contains enough succinic acid to be considered therapeutic in cases of pain relief.
Baltic Amber has been known as an effective and all-natural method of pain relief throughout Europe & Asia for decades, if not hundreds of years!
When will it take effect?
As with most natural and homeopathic treatments, the time and strength of Baltic Amber's effectiveness is different for everyone. Some people will notice slight differences almost immediately-within less than 24 hours of putting on their jewelry, pain symptoms lessen. For most it is a cumulative effect, with the easing of symptoms most often noted within 2-3 weeks of using their jewelry. NOTE: Baltic Amber is most effective when worn as much as possible. The stones need to be in contact with the skin to warm and release their oils to receive maximum therapeutic benefits.
The most common testimonial we receive is when people get their new amber jewelry and wear for a long while, perhaps not even noting the changes they are experiencing. Invariably they take off their amber jewelry for some reason or another. We love to receive emails like this, "We had the worst day yesterday (pain-wise). Little one was cranky and cried so much. And then I realized we took off the her necklace the night before! I put it back on her right away. I didn't even realize how well it was working till I took it off and OH MY GOSH! We love it! We are convinced, never will we be without amber again!!"
Where should Baltic Amber be worn?
Ideally you will want to wear your Baltic Amber jewelry as close to the source of the pain you are experiencing. For example, for teething, headaches, neck and shoulder pain a necklace is ideal. While for carpal tunnel, arthritis and tendonitis a bracelet is best. Anklets are wonderful for sprains, leg cramps, and even sciatic pain.

*FuNkY Birdie Boutique only uses verified authentic Baltic Amber imported from Lithuania off the coast of the Baltic Sea. Our jewelry is 100% designed & crafted by FuNkY Birdie in the USA!
All FuNkY Birdie jewelry for children is hand-knotted in between each bead as a safe guard. In the event the jewelry were to break, only one bead will come loose, which minimizes the chance of a child swallowing beads. Children's jewelry is also made with safety break-away points at the clasps of each piece-IF PULLED ON WITH FORCE YOUR JEWELRY WILL COME APART! That is what it's meant to do!! That way if the child were to become bound, the piece will break away and pose less of a threat of injury to the child. Amber jewelry is NOT intended to be chewed! Please watch for your child putting amber jewelry in the mouth. If a necklace can reach a child's mouth-it is TOO LONG! It is important to inspect jewelry regularly for broken beads or other issues.
Please use common sense when using jewelry on children. It is to be used under supervision only!
A great option for keeping amber on your child is the double-clasp necklace. It may be worn as a necklace, and it may be worn as anklet, wrapping multiple times and clasping between beads for a perfect custom fit:
For those with polyresin plastic screw clasps, you may do this with a clasp converter:
Baltic Amber jewelry works by being worn against the skin, it is NOT intended for children to chew on their jewelry. It is important when determining what size to order, the goal is to be sure your child cannot roll their necklace over their chin and into their mouth.
How to Determine the Best Size
Using a soft measuring measuring tape determine what length will be best. If you do not have a soft measuring tape, you can use a string, shoe lace or piece of dental floss and measure using a hard tape or ruler. The key is not tight but not so long that your child can pass the necklace over his or her chin and put it into his or her mouth. Keep in mind the stones themselves will add some "bulk" compared to the measuring tape. Most parents find taking the measurement of their child's neck and adding 1.5-2" to be ideal. Once you have measured their neck, extend the tape 1.5-2" and check that size to be sure you like that fit.
For adults, the choice of size is mostly personal preference. Keep in mind amber works by being worn against the skin, so necklaces need to be against the neck or worn under clothing. Anklets and bracelets need to be worn under socks and sleeves. Follow the same procedure listed above for How to Determine Best Size if you would like a fitted piece. Please remember that the amber stones will add bulk to the measurement. If you are looking for a snug fit, we recommend adding 1.5-2" to the actual measurement of your neck, wrist or ankle to accommodate the thickness the amber itself will add.
When ordering please note the length of the jewelry NOT the length of your neck/wrist/ankle. Jewelry will be made to the length you order.
