Under A Mother's Wing

Inspired by moms but made for anyone who takes others under her wing, this recycled sterling silver necklace by Rhonda Dudek celebrates your unique flock. A mother bird perches on a branch, keeping a watchful eye over a line of up to four chicks representing the little ones who fill your nest. A subtle and endearing symbol of love, this handcrafted brood will perch sweetly on your collarbone, bringing springtime cheer in every season. Handmade in Rhode Island.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“Lots of people in my life thought it was absolutely ridiculous that I was getting a degree in Jewelry and Metals, which may be the reason I worked so hard at it.”

Rhonda Dudek designs jewelry as she travels around the country, while her sister Jess runs their Rhode Island studio. Together, they create adorable yet sophisticated sterling jewelry gifts for every stage of life. Each piece is forged, sewn, or soldered by hand and the simple beauty found in forests, both imaginary and real, inspires much of the work. Rhonda graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in jewelry and metalsmithing and built her collection while living in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Rhonda's sister Jess manages the studio with her kiddos who love to help do the little tasks. They're a big part of the studio atmosphere, keeping everyone smiling, happy, inspired, and thankful.

I love this necklace! It is so beautiful and meaningful! Only a few drawbacks, but not big enough to return or not wear.
~The clasp is a little difficult... the loop is small and anyone will thick or arthritic fingers might have a problem
~It is a little short... I'd like it to hang a little lower, and the clasp makes it hard to add a lengthener
~The one I received has a little dot on the mother bird, right where it looks like it was attached to the branch. It's not too obvious, but for the price, I would have liked it to be flawless. The metal it's made with makes it more noticeable.

But, overall, I love this necklace! It is so beautiful, unique and meaningful to me... I'll carry my three little birdies with me everyday, even when they someday leave the nest!

I absolutely loved this necklace- loved. Wore it many times each week. Got a lot of compliments but it broke in half. I wasn't rough with it. Was just out to dinner. So bummed. My hubby doesn't get me sentimental gifts very often. This was special.

Comments about UncommonGoods Mother Nestling Birds Necklace:

We had a special sisters gathering (all moms) and it was a present from me to myself and four sisters. I bought 2, 3, and 4 little birds as we all have different amount of kids and we all loved them. Being black they are unique, the chain is so delicate it seems of good taste. I dont sleep and take a bath with it because I am not sure with time it will get damaged.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mother Nestling Birds Necklace:

    I wear it every day. Looks great and goes with everything. It is a lighter metal than what it looks like in some of the pictures but I still love it. It's more of an antique silver finish (not as close to black as it seems). Craftsmanship is impressive. I was worried it was too delicate but my toddler pulls on it all the time and it's fine. Would absolutely recommend.

              This necklace is even prettier "in person". The little birds are charming, and the chain has a rainbow hue that adds a lovely touch. This could be a signature piece.

                For two years, my daughter wore a nevlace just like this to all of her daughters swim meets, then about a year ago, she lost it. It was a lucky charm. Her daughter Parker always did well when her mother wore the necklace. Parker paid me the cash to order this necklace for her mother. Her mother wore it to a sim meet last Saturday, and Parker came in in first or second place in all five events she swam, earning 41 points for her team. She qualified for Southeasterns, in Long course later this summer. The necklace is her new lucky charm.

                Service and delivery comments:

                All of the items my granddaughter bought for her mother were shipped and arrived in a full week ahead of Mothers day. They were in excellent condition.
