Tiffany Ard

"Mom? I figured something out. I think I might be a nerd," said a young Tiffany Ard.

"Oh honey, don't say that!"

"My mom cried actual tears that night and worried out loud about my self-esteem, and where she went wrong, and why I couldn't love shopping and cute boys like all the other seventh-grade girls."

"But it's her own fault. She married the kind of guy who writes math formulas on the wall next to the toilet because he has an idea or a question and doesn't want to forget to look it up later. What did she expect? Cool children?"

Many years after artist Tiffany Ard discovered her inner-nerd, and after the birth of her own son, she started a line of Nerdy Baby products. As a new mom, Ard felt overwhelmed by all the products designed to make babies smart and successful, so she decided to take the "brilliant baby" idea to the extreme.

Tiffany lives in Georgia with her husband and two children.

      This is such a great pendant. I love the design and its perfect for a new mother with a sense of humor. I wish the big guy was a bit smaller so my wife could wear it at the office without worrying about her neckline, but it is such a perfect gift.

          Comments about FERTILIZATION PENDANT:

          It is a terrific gift for nurse, midwife, or doctor. Especially those nerdy moms or girls into science. The chain is nothing special, but like any snall gauge chain, hang it and there won't be any knots. It is a very subtle piece that is a great conversation piece. But be prepared for that person that thinks it is offensive (from the reviews, just given as gift). But my L&D nurse loves it!

            I purchased this necklace for a friend of mine who hosted my baby shower and who is also hoping on having a baby of her own sooner than later. Having not actually seen the necklace myself, I'm basing my review off her comments and she absolutely loved it! Given the meaning behind the piece it was a fitting thank you gift on so many levels and despite my taking forever to find a proper gift, once I ordered this one it arrived to my friend in perfect timing. She received it the same day she discovered something cooking in the belly - a BABY!!! She has been wearing the piece daily for added blessings. I can't thank Uncommongoods enough for continually having amazing items to choose from whether it be home or jewelry. Keep bringing the goodness.

            I LOVE LOVE LOVE my necklace! The one and only complaint/worry I have is with the chain. It is so thin and the pendant seems almost too heavy for it. Other than that this necklace is awesome! I got it from my "Fertilizer" on Saturday and today is Friday. I have worn it all but 2 days and that's only because it didn't go with my outfits those days.

                      It's too literal for my liking. Can't imagine ever wanting to wear sperm around my neck. The only time I could think of giving this to someone is if they were struggling to conceive.

                      I just can't see you selling a lot of these. I appreciate the artful side of it, but I couldn't wear it around, say, my kids or my Mom .. the hassle just wouldn't be worth it down here in the deep South.

                      I wear silver jewelry all the time. This piece is just kinda gross, though. If you aren't a gyno, fertility tech, or currently trying to get pregnant, it would just be yucky to wear.

                      the idea could be fun in certain settings but for the price i doubt few would want it as a quality item to wear more than on very specific occasions. while it doesn't offend me it certainly would some. as i'm writing though i realize that the size of the pendant (which isn't specified) could influence my thoughts as if small enough it wouldn't be more subtle.

                      I think it's cool. You can't tell it's sperm unless you really look....it just looks like swirls and stuff. Why do people think it's inappropriate? Lighten up!

This would have been a very meaningful gift in the years when my husband and I were trying to conceive our children. And I have some friends who are doulas and midwives who would LOVE one of these!

                      Hi everyone, I'm the designer of this piece and my husband makes each one by hand (no casting or mass production). I just wanted to pop in and say how much we are loving the discussion here! All of our work is science-themed, and this is by far the most controversial design we've ever worked on. It's definitely a niche item. A note on the cost -- the price of silver right now is killing everyone who makes silver jewelry. When we started out it was $5 an ounce. Now it's $35 an ounce. It's a huge bummer. But hey, you're investing in precious metals that can apparently go up in price many times over. :-) Anyway -- whether you love it or hate it, I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who is voting and contributing to the discussion. - Tiffany Ard

                      I'm a bit torn over this one. It is rather unique in design and could spark conversation alright. But I doubt I personally would wear it.

                      I wish it was out right now so I could buy it for my best friend, who is pregnant. I do think the price is too high, as it will most likely be a gift, and when someone is pregnant you're already spending lots of money on baby things for them.

                      A little expensive, but i love after reading the comments how many people find it to be tacky, or inappropriate. I think its artistic, witty, creative, and the fact that it is a provocative piece makes it so unique and profound. Shows people that you aren't afraid of being judged. and the creation of life is such a beautiful thing, anyone who finds it to be tacky, or doesn't want to explain it to kids, is afraid of telling the truth to their own children and can't accept the scientific reality of how life begins. And that, i believe is tacky.

                      The idea is scary if you use birth control and are worried . . . but some people would love it. This reminds me though of those cute pendants with synapses and neurons, etc.

                      I would think that there wouldn't be a very wide clientele base to carry this. Not many would have the moxie to wear this. Seems more appropriate for Spencer's to carry this.

                      I love this. I would be very interested to see the geographic distribution of the likes and dislikes - I think here in liberal Tucson this pendant would be a hit with my friends (many of whom are in their mid-thirties and either starting families or palnning to).

                      I love this. Many people probably won't notice that it is sperm and an egg, until they examine it more closely. I like how from a distance, it looks like one thing, but when you get close, it has another meaning all together. This would make a great for someone who is trying to get pregnant, an obstetrician or maternity nurse, or a doula or midwife!
