Don't Poke the Mama

Inspired by her own mother's protective nature, Britta Ambauen designed this sweet bear and cub necklace. "She's always been fiercely protective of my brother and me," she says, "backing us up and taking our side." The playful piece features a sterling silver mama bear with up to four bronze cubs in tow, capturing the strong bond and tender love a mother has for her little ones. It's a sparkling reminder that children—no matter what age—need their mother to help lead the way. 18-inch sterling silver chain. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

Learn more about how Britta is inspired by her mom, and other strong women, on the blog.

“I feel like the years of energy I put out is flowing back. Its a powerful time in my company's history. I am so excited for all that lies ahead.”

Britta Ambauen believes our thoughts have the power to shape our actions, outlook, and interactions. She likes to infuse the ideas she contemplates most into her jewelry, and hopes her pieces will help remind others of their own thoughts and wishes. Utilizing a wide variety of materials and techniques, including wire wrapping, bezel setting, and etching, her eclectic accessories balance simplicity and intricacy, sophistication and youthfulness.

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.

Fun necklace! I've worn Mama Bear necklace for casual and dress. The shape and size of mama bear and cubs perfectly flatter a scoop neck shirt. It wears well on top of fabric too, especially on black. Everyone asks about this piece and I'm happy to share my experience about protecting my two cubs. Stunning craftsmanship with fine detailing on the bears.

Nice necklace but broke the second day

My wife lived the necklace but one of the rings between the Bears broke the second day she wore it. I would have expected the workmanship to be better

          I don't feel this necklace is worth the money I paid for it but I'm not returning it because the recipient will like it. The bear charms are cute but the chain feels poor quality.

            The bears are really cute and well done. My favorite is the mix of silver and gold so I can wear both in the rest of my jewelry.

              The necklace is unusual and cute - the detailing for the fur is nicely done. The chain could be a bit sturdier - I'm just extra careful with it. I also like it when necklaces have multiple loops so you can adjust wear you put the clasp. Depending on the shirt, I want it a bit longer/shorter. That's being picky though! I splurged on this for myself and I'm glad I did.
