The art of modern motherhood.
The early days of parenthood place countless demands on a new mother but her style doesn’t have to be one of them. January Moon’s combination of function and high design offer mom and baby fine modern jewelry that they can both sink their teeth into.
The time an infant spends in momma’s arms is precious and it can have a long lasting positive impact on their cognitive and emotional development. Our innovative textures, rich color palette, and contemporary shapes encourage these crucial cuddles by giving baby an endlessly engaging teething experience and giving mom something she actually wants to wear.
Each element is thoughtfully and beautifully crafted with the highest quality materials to provide little ones with unyielding safety and parents with peace of mind. A celebration of form, function, and family, January Moon enables women to celebrate their personal style while enriching their baby’s development.
In January of 2014, Nashville-based visual artist and jewelry designer, Jennifer Luckett, gave birth to an unabashedly feisty baby boy named Shepard. Busy and brawny from the beginning, it became clear that anything that belonged to Jenny also belonged to him. Accessories were no exception.
Shep chewed, stretched, snapped, and swatted any and every piece of jewelry that he could get his hands on. Before long, his mom’s prized collection was reduced to bits of scrap metal and loose beads. Conventional teething jewelry with its tired pastels and uniform textures did little to satisfy mama or baby’s discriminating tastes, so Jenny was left with a choice: give up on jewelry or make it better. January Moon was conceived over many fussy, moonlit nights, aspiring to create modern, art-minded teething necklaces that keep up baby’s strength and mom’s style.
Inspired by the creativity of the child, the textures, colors and shapes of nature, and the singular bond between mother and baby, Jenny wove together her modern aesthetic as artist, her understanding of fine craftsmanship as designer, and her knowledge as mother, to produce a unique, exquisitely fabricated line of teething wares.
California-born Jennifer Luckett’s world is colored with art, adventure and enterprise. Equally moved by the hardwood forests of the Smokey Mountains and the walls of the MoMA, Jenny draws inspiration from the beautiful things, big and small, that surround her. After working in every corner of the art industry from face paint to fine galleries, she landed at the side of acclaimed jewelry designer, Judith Bright. It was under Judith’s mentorship where Jenny sharpened her abilities as an artisan and developed a keen understanding for the feel, balance, and composition of upmarket jewelry. If you need to find her, she’s either by the campfire, in the kitchen, or running approximately thirty paces behind her tornadic son Shepard with her wonderful husband, Mike by her side. On second thought, just follow the happy voices.
