One of my favorite things! I completely adore this mom and baby bird necklace by my favorite jewelry company, @figsandginger. Rhonda makes these (and all of her other designs) with so much love and they're really beautiful. I have one with just a single bird on a wire, but once I became a mother, I was so excited to get one with a baby bird on it too. • If you'd like to buy a lovely piece of jewelry for a mom you know (or yourself!), @figsandginger is currently having a sale!
