Britta Ambauen's handmade locket is a wearable tribute to the nurturing power of motherhood. Composed of two sterling silver hemispheres, the locket slides open to reveal the inscription "from deepest roots, tallest branches grow." The front is carved with an elegant "tree of life" motif representing a mother's expansive, embracing devotion to her kin. The tree protects up to four birthstones representing the children or grandchildren that grow from your family tree. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.
