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.

This is a perfect gift for my modern, working, mom-of-three daughter. I figured it would remind her of her three little boys at home when she's at work. It's like she's still "tending the nest."

It seems high-priced, but that's because I'm such a bargain-hunter. The opals are very blue (I got 3 of them). You can wear it with the silver plate over the opal eggs, or with them exposed.

Very charming. I'm sure she will love it. (Haven't given it to her yet.)

The necklace is a great design, except it tarnishes so quickly. The description says "Copper develops a warm, deep patina over time, but if you choose, brush the copper and silver discs lightly with a light stroke of this pad to maintain the original satin look." well, I would not describe that as a "warm deep patina" it's simply black and it's not the copper that is the issue, it's the silver on top. I doubt this is even really sterling silver or if it is, it must be mixed with other metals as I've never seen sterling silver tarnish like this. once it's brushed it is OK for a week or so, but then turns black again. I'm afraid if I keep brushing it then eventually the metal will just completely wear down, but you cannot see the bird at all when it is tarnished the way it is.

    I gave this to my grandmother as a gift. We lost my aunt about a year ago, and I wanted to get her something to reminder her that even though my aunt is no longer with us, my grandmother still has four kids. She absolutely loves it.

                  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.
