Make Way for Ducklings

One thing's for sure: a mama duck knows how to parent. Always leading her ducklings single-file, she sets an example of leadership from day one. Ian Gibson epitomizes the sweetness of this mother/child bond through the whimsical design of this sterling silver necklace. This mama gives her little ones a sense of independence by letting them walk first, but shows she's still in protective mode with an oversized umbrella—because not all ducks like water off their backs. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Ian Gibson's jewelry is completely handmade in his studio in the heart of Philadelphia. Completely self-taught in the art of jewelry fabrication, Ian's fascination with metals formed from a schooling in geology and a desire to work with his hands. Combining sterling silver and 14kt gold fill metals with gemstones and pearls, he seeks to create designs that are organic and have an artisanal essence. His commitment to his craft is never ending and his creations mirror this evolution. After setting their traveling bags down, Ian and his wife Jessica founded their own studio in 1999. They are joined by a talented staff of local artisans. The studio is filled with the sound of hammers, sanders, and laughter, and every person makes each piece as if it were a gift for someone dear to them.
