Sometimes the best way to say ‘thank you’ is with a heartfelt gesture that will last a lifetime. And for moms who do it all, a thoughtfully chosen piece of jewelry makes a great gift. Local jewelry designer and maker Beth Lawrence offers some great options. Better known as “Freshie,” Beth started her jewelry company Freshie & Zero more than a decade ago with the mission of creating versatile handmade jewelry at a price most everyone can afford. Her ideas will help you pick the perfect gift to let your mom know how much you appreciate the many hats she wears.
10 Handmade Jewelry Pieces Perfect for Mom
Cluster Necklace — Family of Four
It is easy to make the connection between the four rings on this necklace ($52) and members of your family. Each ring can represent a family member — children, siblings, parents and even pets. The gold-filled and sterling silver necklace is ideal for larger families and mothers who want to keep their loved ones close to their hearts.
Small Modern Heart Necklace
Give Mom a piece of your heart with this small heart necklace ($52). Made of sterling silver and casual enough for everyday wear, she will treasure this piece for years, and if you are lucky, she might even let you borrow it! Available with both 16-inch and 18-inch chains, it’s also available in gold-filled.
If you have a stylish mother in your life, you can’t go wrong with these earrings ($70). A labor of love, they are hammered, sanded and wrapped with sterling silver wire and assembled with a black oxidized sterling ring. The mixed metals create an updated look for an up-to-date mom. Let her know how much you love her with a pair of these beauties.
River Rocks Earrings
Inspired by rocks in a river bed, these earrings ($56) feature three circles of matte silver, gold, and shiny silver. Again, the rings can represent children or family members. No matter the meaning behind them, every time Mom puts these on, she’ll be reminded of your love for her.
Heavy Drop Earrings
These heavy drop earrings ($54) come in three different metals — take your pick of sterling silver, gold-filled or rose gold-filled. The hoop design is lightweight, and the earrings can be worn with everything from blue jeans to cocktail attire. These earrings would make the perfect gift for a minimalist mom, don’t you think?
Two pieces of hammered wire form these earrings ($52). At 1.75 inches in length, they’re available in sterling silver, gold-filled or rose gold-filled. They’re simple yet intriguing and we love the wave-like design.
GLAM Orbits Necklace
One of the more intricate pieces on the list, this necklace ($84) mixes metals and makes a statement. Two “dotted” chains in silver and gold hold two larger circles united by a smaller one. This necklace would make a great gift for the matriarch of a growing family.
Radiate Mixed Necklace
Looking for something that can be worn every day and complement other pieces of jewelry in your mom’s collection? This mixed-metal necklace ($62) fits the bill. Gold and silver rings are linked with an oxidized ring, and all three hang on a sterling silver chain. For a family of three, the two larger rings can represent the parents while the smaller ring can represent the child.
Love Necklace — Mother & Child
New moms, this one’s for you. Freshie designed this Love necklace ($60) when she was pregnant with her first child, and she suggests it as the perfect gift for new moms and moms of one. For those with more kiddos, the necklace is also made with more rings for mothers of two, three, four or even five kids.
In addition to the mixed metal pieces, Freshie & Zero has a collection of necklaces and earrings that feature mercury glass, mystic quartz and crystals. As part of that collection, these earrings ($66) feature mint mercury glass and green crystal stones. They’re interesting and elegant — just like Mom!
