A Mom Never Forgets

There are some days when motherhood feels like being the ringmaster of a twelve-ring circus. But even so, it's those little nuts that are the most precious part of your life. Jewelry designer Trudy James celebrates that special bond between mother and child, but does so with a big top twist. Playing on the idea that an elephant never forgets, she symbolizes maternal love as a sweet momma pachyderm with a heart-shaped ear, holding in its trunk a precious cargo of tiny, bronze peanut charms--one for each of your own "little peanuts." Handmade in San Diego, California.

Wear your family parade short or long with the two-inch chain extender.

A Wonderful Anniversary Gift


My wife enjoys unique jewelry that is beautiful. She also enjoys jewelry that represents other parts of the world. And she loves uncommon goods. So when I went to look for a gift, this was a great place to come. Usually when I need a gift for her, I search until I find 2-3 gifts, then ponder which one would be best. But when I found this necklace, I stopped looking and bought it immediately. In short, my wife loves it. Bada bing bada boom.

Do not buy this


This item alothough a great idea is poorly made, looks cheap, and is too short for even an adult with a slender neck.

Priceless Gift for Mom


This necklace is the best conversation starter. With 5 peanuts on the trunk, perhaps the trunk could be made longer. Overall, excellent gift.

She loved it!!


Purchased as a gift, total surprise and she loved it. She loves elephants and as two kids so it was perfect.

Tulsa, OK


The perfect gift


She loves it and wears it almost everyday. It would be great if there was a way to adjust how many peanuts were on it (aside from the original order)
