I ended up making several mother necklaces this year for family members and friends.

They are all simple designs but I really like the sentimental quality of them.  Cheesy

Perhaps my favorite of the bunch...a mother necklace for a friend with two sparrows and her children's birthstones in the middle.  I like this one a lot...thinking about recreating it for myself although my daughter is an only child so it might be a bit sparse.  Maybe I could do a family necklace and include my and my partner's birthstones as well.

Here is the classic birds nest necklace for my partner's mother, with our daughter's alternative birthstone (jasper) and her cousins birthstone (pearl) as the little eggs. I used my daughter's alternative stone because I wanted the stones to be real and I don't have any aquamarine on hand.

Another classic mother necklace for my sister in law with her son's first initial stamped into a metal disk and his birthstone.

And here is what I have titled the "long line of kids" necklace I made for my partner's grandmother...her two daughters and their two children respectively are included on the bar, the two great grandchildren (my daughter and her cousin) are on the chain...this time I went with my daughter's actual birthstone (aquamarine) since I was doing fake stones for everyone...I can't afford rubies and diamonds.

Thanks for looking!

They are all beautiful, but the one with the sparrows is my absolute favorite. Just lovely!

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
