Notes

Each necklace comes with a small abrasive pad. 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.

        The necklace was given to my daughter after she gave birth to her second child. It will definitely be a keepsake. The craftsmanship was wonderful!

              This was a gift for a friend of mine who is pregnant with her first child. She was so touched by it and I think she really liked it. It's a great everyday necklace, great quality, nice jewelry but not really dressy. Which is perfect for her, because she's not one to get too dressed up! Especially during her rough first trimester!

                      I bought this for my daughter and mommy to be to celebrate her little egg in the nest. I liked the smaller size. My daughter loves the necklace and what it represents.
