Nesting Instincts

Whether her chicks are still nestled at home or have spread their wings, this pendant lets a mama bird wear a tender tribute to her familial flock. Britta Ambauen carves soft wax into a sculptural nest that is cast in polished sterling silver and stamped with a tiny heart on the bottom. To give each nest a personal touch, she fills it with a gathering of up to five birthstone "eggs" representing her children or grandchildren. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

Much of Britta's work is inspired by the strong female figures in her life. Learn more in our interview with Britta on the blog.

This necklave did not disappoint - the beads that represent the eggs are the perfect size, color and material to make this a classic and versatile piece. Appreciated the option to personalize with my and siblings' birthstone colors. The length is perfect as it is the standard length of necklaces my Mother wears. It seems like the nest would be a piece that is more casual, but the good quality makes it great to dress up or down! The chain is not too dainty nor too thick and compliments the pendant quite well.

I'm disappointed with this item was because it rusted, the price that it costs is steep for this outcome. I purchased this 2-3 months ago and it has rust spots! The necklace was taken off for most showers and I feel like this should not have happened. The wiring that holds the bead also started to come loose.

        My only negative, and this is not the artist's fault, is that both grandchildren have April birthdays, so the "eggs" don't really stand out.
