Happy December everyone!  Today, I'm going to offer a few more suggestions to Sara, a mother of twins from York, PA, whose question about finding the perfect mother's necklace was featured in last week's YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY post.  Here are a few more beautiful options for you, Sara.

Avaeli Couture has some great pieces for Moms of Multiples.  I love the Two Peas in a Pod design:

And this Mommy of Twins necklace really needs no explanation:

The Moon and Star piece may not have been designed for a mother of twins, but since you have a boy and a girl, Sara, I think this would be great for you!

And for a less traditional mother's necklace, Avaeli Couture's Bar Two design is a really striking choice.

Sara mentioned liking hand-stamping in her question and this next designer doesn't feature traditional personalization but her necklaces are so unique that I had to share them.

Yup, that's a fingerprint on that charm!  Camille Cesari has created a line called LovePrint which takes your loved one's fingerprints and turns them into gorgeous pieces of jewelry.

How amazing would it be to have a wearable piece of art featuring your kids' - or your family's - fingerprints?!  There are a bunch of different necklace designs and metals to choose from so you can really customize it to suit your style.

You can even have the backs engraved with initials or birth dates.

You can have other items made from the prints as well - cuff links, key chains, bracelets, etc. - so a LovePrint piece would make an amazing wedding, baby shower or Mother's or Father's Day gift too.     

To have a LovePrints design made especially for you, simply order one of their kits (you can give this as a gift to someone as well), use it to make wax imprints of the prints you want to be a part of your piece, send them in and in a few weeks, Camille will send you back a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.  For more information, visit the LovePrint store on Etsy or Camille's website.

Sara, I hope you've found the perfect mother's necklace from one of the designers I've featured on AFOMFT.  As a thank you for your question, you're going to get a $25 credit toward the purchase of the piece you choose!  Enjoy it and be sure to send pictures once it arrives!

You know where these great designs are going, right?
