Putting Your Eggs In One Locket

Whether your little ones are right down the hall or have just flown the nest, you'll always keep them close. Artist Trudy James sends this sentimental message home in her beautifully handmade necklace. Like a mother's wing, the sterling silver dome on each locket protects up to four Amazonite inside--one for each of your own little birds. A warm, textured copper interior cradles the precious eggs, while a hand-stamped bird silhouette completes the motherly display. Handmade in San Diego.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

      I wear this necklace almost everyday. It's great with jeans and a t-shirt, or dressed up at work. The clasp is easy to open and close myself, the chain fits beautifully and is a great length. The two halves of the nest make a cool sound, reminding me of my son - my Baby Bird. Love the color of the bead and the silver and copper colors. Highly recommend!

      Small size makes it difficult to interpret as a bird's nest with little eggs.

            My sister will love this because it reflects her total-mom thing, all her kids and isn't something that looks like a total-mom thing. It's a nice weight and I think she will enjoy wearing it. Kids in the nest - very sweet.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

                A quick story…

                I purchased this necklace for my wife for Christmas a few years ago. With three children, I purchased one with three eggs. She absolutely loved it. Never took it off. Wore it everywhere she went, including the shower. It's a beautiful piece; she is constantly receiving compliments on it.

                So, long story short, lo and behold, two years later, my wife and I were having a fourth child. So, she now needed four eggs in her necklace. I reached out to Uncommon Goods and told them my story and that I wanted to get her another necklace with four eggs, but wanted to get it for her for Christmas. The kind folks at Uncommon Goods were awesome. They allowed me to purchase the new necklace at the beginning of October, and after Christmas, send her old one back, and… wait for it… just charge me the difference between the two! You get what I'm saying here…? They took her old, two year old necklace (which still looked brand new) and just charged me the extra egg.

                In closing – great company with great product. Thanks for helping me be a rock star at Christmas and saving me money. You have a forever customer.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Nest Egg Necklace:

                  This lovely necklace struck me immediately for it's unique design and the meaningfulness it held with the robin theme. My mom is so special and I always look for something to make her birthday extra special. I loved that I could determine how many of the little blue eggs would go in the necklace so I could have one for each of her three children. The quality is excellent and it is a bonus to be able to wear it two different ways if she wants to have the copper side facing out. Make that three different ways, she can also have the necklace open, showing the little light blue eggs.
