It's been a hot minute since we last featured work by long-time Empire sponsor Turtle Love, which makes today's post extra exciting: they've got some of the cutest mom-and-me necklaces around, and we're ready to show 'em off!
Turtle Love's animal-themed mother-and-child necklaces are a perennial fave — in fact, I bet at least one of you got all swoony at the Mother and Baby Elephant Necklace pictured above. I personally love the use of elephants in this piece, especially since female elephants are known for their parenting skills — mama elephants are super-protective and constantly in close contact with their offspring. Elephants also travel in matriarchal packs, making this necklace a sweet gift for offbeat aunties who rock the babysitting, your daycare provider who's more like a family friend, or that Nana who always takes your kiddos to the zoo.
From wedding rings to mama necklaces, Turtle Love has got your back — and just in time for the holidays, no less. Read on to check out your options and find out how to score a necklace of your choice for free!
The duck necklaces (you can pair the adult with one or two ducklings) are adorbz: a charming yet understated way to bring to mind the attentive relationship mother ducks and their offspring share, just like the one you have with your kid(s). AWW!
An initial is a great way to symbolize a love you have for someone — child, parent, friend, partner. There are tons of ways to work these: you could get one for yourself with your kid's initial, give one to friend with THEIR initial. They can be like Best Friends Forever necklaces, but for grown ups!
All hailing from California, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Maine: if you've always wanted to show some state pride, you're in luck! Turtle Love Co. offers these five states as options (psst: more states are coming soon). These necklaces have been all over the blogosphere lately (they've recently been featured on Offbeat Bride and A Practical Wedding), and for good reason — they're simple but genius.
Turtle Love is giving away a mom, state, or initial necklace to an Offbeat Mama reader!
