Welcome to YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY!  Today's question comes from Sara in York, PA.

Dear AFOMFT, I've been searching for the perfect mother's necklace.  I have twins born in September with the initials J & B.  I like the look of handstamped jewelry but am open to other options as well.  Can you help?

I sure can, Sara!  You may have seen the post from Friday on the gorgeous mother's jewelry from Cinnamon Sticks.  If none of her work caught your eye, I have lots more where that came from.

I recently got this gorgeous framed necklace from StephieMc Designs and I adore it!

As you can see, it has both of my daughters' names hand stamped on it as well as my husband's, and I really like that it's silver framed in gold so I can wear it with almost anything.  You can also get this necklace in all silver or all gold and you can choose to add crystals to represent J & B's birth month too:

Another StephieMc necklace I really like is the Baby Feet design.

Instead of using a first and middle name, you could include both of your twins' names or their initials, and you could do the same with this beautiful Annabel necklace:

I love how the curved disk hugs the charm, kind of like a mother and child. 

The Marcy necklace is also super sweet:

The heart charm is so pretty and instead of a monogram, you can use J & B's initials.  I could go on and on about StephieMc Designs but check out her store to see what other pretty pieces she has to offer!

Another shop with really unique pieces of mother's jewelry is emmarie Designs.  I love this family necklace:

Each disk has a different family member's initial on it.  It's so simple but makes a great statement.

This version is similar but each disc has a different name on it.  So great for grandmothers too!

But the Hold My Heart necklace from emmarie Design may be my favorite of all. 

How pretty is that?  I think this design could be customized to feature two initials as well. 

For some more funky mother's necklaces, check out Punky Jane Jewelry.  The Mark Your Calendar piece is a great way to commemorate your little ones' birth.

Their three disc necklace could be perfect for you, Sara.  Get one disc with the letter J, one with the letter B, one with their birthdate and sapphire crystals.

Or you could go with this square pendant featuring the names of your whole family.

It's really fun option and you can find a lot more of those at Punky Jane Jewelry.

Last, but not least, a precious option from Below 14th Studio.

The Hearts on a String necklace features silver and copper hand stamped hearts and it's so delicate on.

Best of all, it's just $15 for one heart and $5 for each additional one.  That's a whole lot of style for a bargain price! 

All of these fabulous designers are going on AFOMFT's Holiday Must Have List!  Click the graphic below to see more fantastic gift ideas.

Sara, I hope you see something here that you love!  If you haven't seen the perfect piece yet, not to worry.  I found so many wonderful mother's necklace options that I'm going to showcase some more next YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY too.  But if you did find something you want Santa to put under the tree, I've got some great discounts for you!
