Don't Poke the Mama

Inspired by her own mother's protective nature, Britta Ambauen designed this sweet bear and cub necklace. "She's always been fiercely protective of my brother and me," she says, "backing us up and taking our side." The playful piece features a sterling silver mama bear with up to four bronze cubs in tow, capturing the strong bond and tender love a mother has for her little ones. It's a sparkling reminder that childrenŚno matter what ageŚneed their mother to help lead the way. 18-inch sterling silver chain. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

I received this as a gift from my son & daughter-in-law


I loved this necklace the moment I received it on Christmas morning from my son & daughter-in- law. It really touched my heart. I have received so many compliments from friends & strangers as well. People who don't speak English have told me how much they love it by touching their neck & then their heart with a big smile.

Mother's Day Made Easy


Instead of taking granddaughters shopping for mommy, I showed them the catalog with a few items circled. They went right to the bears because they had seen mommy looking at it previously. So easy! So appropriate. Very well received!



Perfect for the mom in your life


It's hard to find the perfect Mother's Day gift. The mamma bear and cubs necklace is just what I was looking for!

Great gift for any mother!


This is a necklace you can wear everyday and get ready to get multiple compliments every time you have it on.

cute, but too expensive


This necklace is cute and reflects an inside family thing with Mama Bear and Little Bears. It is nicely made except I agree with others that the chain is a bit too delicate for the concept and for the bears attached. I also feel that it is very overpriced even though it is hand-made. However, because of the family thing I am keeping it as I believe it will be enjoyed and worn for casual occasions.

Latham, NY


Perfect Mothers Day Gift !


This is a high quality necklace. Good craftsmanship, beautiful detail. The chain is the right length to hopefully keep the bears from twisting when worn. Very happy with the design.
