For Your Little Cabbage

We all know "honey" and "sweetheart," but some opt for more poetic nicknames. Inspired by terms of endearment used around the world, Britta Ambauen created a collection of necklaces engraved with sweet epithets. Some are cute, like mon petit chou (French for "my little cabbage"), and some are romantic, like mo chuisle ("my pulse" in Irish), but they're all sure to delight the one you hold dear. Each term, accompanied by one of Britta's delightful illustrations, is printed on a sterling silver pendant and paired with six colorful Czech glass beads. Give one to your bogarkam ("little bug" in Hungarian), whether that's your true love, child, or even an inside joke with a close friend. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

“I feel like the years of energy I put out is flowing back. Its a powerful time in my company's history. I am so excited for all that lies ahead.”

Britta Ambauen likes to infuse the ideas she contemplates most into her jewelry, and hopes her pieces will help remind others of their own thoughts and wishes. Utilizing a wide variety of materials and techniques, including wire wrapping, bezel setting, and etching, her eclectic accessories balance simplicity and intricacy, sophistication and youthfulness.

Much of Britta's work is inspired by the strong female figures in her life. Learn more in our interview with Britta on the blog.
