Putting Your Eggs In One Locket

Whether your little ones are right down the hall or have just flown the nest, you'll always keep them close. Artist Trudy James sends this sentimental message home in her beautifully handmade necklace. Like a mother's wing, the sterling silver dome on each locket protects up to four Amazonite inside--one for each of your own little birds. A warm, textured copper interior cradles the precious eggs, while a hand-stamped bird silhouette completes the motherly display. Handmade in San Diego.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

    Very nice but the size is a tad small for what it is. I ordered the "2 egg" version and they barely fit in there when it is closed. I can't imagine what it would look like with 3 or more eggs. It is so small that one wouldn't think that it opened to reveal the eggs, therefore it takes away a little from the wearer's ability to "show off" the surprise inside. And since the 2 egss take up the entire interior space, once it is opened one can't see the "nest" in the copper portion very clearly. That said, it is still a very nice piece and my wife was pleased.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Shipped quickly and packaged nicely. No problems with shipping/delivery.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

    I bought this necklace for a friend, but as soon as I opened it I realizes that she would not care for it. This necklace is for someone you likes small, delicate jewelry. Personally, I thought it was extremely overpriced for the size and quality, even though it was handmade. I just didn't think it was worth it. It was a bit of an expensize lesson as I will be stuck paying for the shipping, but live and learn!

          My daughter-in-law loves this necklace; it's something she wouldn't buy for herself, but has always wanted. Her older daughter keeps opening it and telling which "egg" is her and which is her brother!

            I bought this gift as a Christmas present for my 83 year old mother. She read the card that comes with the gift explaining the symbolism before she opened the necklace. She opened it to make sure all 4 "eggs" were there and put it on immediately! It is truly a gift with meaning!

            The necklace itself is petite - but perfect for everyday wear and well made. Any mother or grandmother would be happy to receive this!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

              Cute packaging. I was impressed by my husband getting me this necklace after my son's birth. I love the Peruvian beads, and the silver and copper of the nest and egg is lovely. I like the brushed silver texture a lot. It had three eggs, but I lost one shortly after receiving it. I wore it daily. Now I don't wear it anymore, because it feels wrong only having 2 eggs in my nest... I cannot figure out where to find a replacement bead in the same size and color... :(
              Even though it's delicate, do get it, it's very pretty, the smallness makes it easy to wear daily. Just be aware the eggs might go missing..
