“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 bought this after seeing it in the catalogue. My sister just had her 4th child and I wanted to get her something special. She is so proud of her family and I thought this was perfect. I originally looked at the other necklace with only one parent bird but then read a review that it may look to represent a single parent family. I wanted to represent her entire family, which includes her wonderful husband so I decided on the two parent necklace. I can't wait to give it to my sister! The size looks to be perfect. I was worried it would be a huge branch based on some other reviews but I think its a good size and not too big at all. I also like the finish. I didn't want something fancy that she can only wear on a rare occasion. This necklace is perfect for everyday! The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because I haven't gotten her opinion on it yet and haven't seen how it holds up.

Very disappointed in the finish. The photo does not accurately represent how dull and dark it is. It may be recycled silver, but it actually looks like gunmetal, has no shine and looks cheap. Love the concept, hate the realization.

      Expecting her second, this was a nice way to reflect the growing family. The two year old also loved it asking which baby bird represented him.

        My daughter-in-law is most of all very proud of her family, but also likes to look stylish. This necklace fulfills both categories. The necklace I ordered had 2 adult birds and 3 baby birds so the whole family is included. A unique gift to give to someone special.
