Thank you to Tough as a mother for sending a gorgeous necklace, for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
Parenting is one of the most rewarding experiences on earth. The joy and the love and the pride that our children bring us is beyond compare.
However, let’s be honest.
Parenting is also challenging. It’s tough. The worry, the sleepless nights, the energy drain, the intense desire for good things and happiness for our children is also beyond compare.
When I received info about Tough as a Mother jewelry, I immediately knew that founder Jennifer Cervantes got it. She understands what the parenting journey looks like and feels like. She unites with other mothers and also cheers them on.
Learn more about Jennifer’s mission in life and her beautiful, energy boosting jewelry.
Meet Jennifer Cervantes, Founder of Tough as a Mother
Before she had kids, Jennifer envisioned motherhood. She saw herself at the park with her children, sipping a latte and wearing cute flats, with her trendy diaper bag beside her.
The reality is different, two kids later. Jennifer discovered the days are way more messy, loud and chaotic than she ever thought possible. Motherhood isn’t necessarily worse, just different. It’s no wonder, she says, that we talk about being tough as a mother – moms need to be strong!
The Birth of Tough as a Mother Tribe
Jennifer discovered her calling, making jewelry for mothers, when she hit the lowest point in her own journey. Working 12 hour days as a teacher to underprivileged children, her body began to shut down. Unable to nurse her five month old baby, Jennifer knew she needed a change. She utilizes gemstones to design pieces that honor the most joyous and the most raw parts of motherhood. And her personalized pieces allow mothers around the world to unite in a quiet, but strong, bond. Our triumphs and trials become shared experiences as we cheer each other on.
“Whether you are buying for yourself, a first-time mom just embarking on her motherhood journey, or a third-time mom choosing hope as she carries her rainbow baby, you are in the right place. You are strong, beautiful and tough as a mother. Let’s honor your journey.”
A Peek at the Tough as a Mother Jewelry
Intrigued by Jennifer’s story and her passion for encouraging mothers, I visited the website. I love what I found.

I’m Tough as a Mother…and You Are Too
I received my Cool Vibes Mama necklace, with the labradorite stone, and I love it. I’m one who appreciates the beauty of gemstones and also recognizes the benefits the stones impart.
The labradorite stone is perfect for me as I connect ever deeper with my intuitive side, distance myself from negativity and absolutely embrace who I am 100%. My wild woman nature rejoices as I wear my necklace.
