Beautiful Mama Triangle Necklace

  • A little bit of a personal background: 

    A little bit about this design: This design was created to remind mamas that they are beautiful. Their beauty transcends what society tells them it is. Mom buns, stretch marks, tee shirts covered in spit up. It's all beautiful. The work that mothers do is beautiful, and mamas are inherently beautiful no matter what society tells them about how they should look or what they should wear, or what size they should be.  

    A little bit of a personal background: 
    Ever since having my first daughter (my first 2 are boys!) I have been really challenging myself to not let the standards of society affect me. I'm still working on my baby weight and I have new stretch marks from Juliette's pregnancy. But when I had her, I made a promise to her that I would do my best to teach her to see herself as beautiful for who she is and not what society tells her. And I made this necklace as a reminder of this- that beauty comes from within. 


     Each Mint & Birch bar necklace is cut by hand in our studio. Each one starts out as a large sheet of extra thick, premium, high quality, 14 karat gold fill or solid sterling silver ethically sourced from reputable mills in North America and is stamped using hand tools. Each Mint & Birch piece is finished and polished in our studio using professional materials. We promise that our necklaces are worth the price!

    Here at Mint & Birch, we use only ethically sourced, certified gold fill and solid sterling silver sourced from North American mills. Gold fill jewelry must contain a certain percentage of gold in order to be able to be legally called gold fill. This percentage is based on the weight of the piece. We use extra thick and heavy bars for your necklaces so that the weight and amount of real gold that you are getting per necklace is higher. We create our bars out of thicker than average sheets of high quality gold fill or sterling sheets sourced from North American mills. This ensures a luxurious, long lasting piece that you can treasure for years to come.

    We do NOT use gold plated materials, but instead, we use gold fill and solid sterling silver. Gold fill is much more superior to gold plated, and is made by bonding physical layers of real gold into a base core. Gold plated, which we do NOT use, is simply a microscopic dip into metallic colouring or gold alloy, which is often not real gold, or cannot be certified as real gold because gold plated items are usually sourced overseas. Often, gold plated materials simply refers to the metallic colour in which it has been dipped in, and as such,  especially without certification, could contain heavy toxic metals such as cadmium or lead. Mint & Birch does NOT sell gold plated items. Our pieces are free of cadmium, lead and nickel and do not contain any toxic metals. We use only gold fill or solid sterling silver, as we strive source best raw materials in the industry! Our gold fill raw materials are ethically sourced from mills within North America, and we only buy raw materials that can be certified as containing real 14 karat gold, safe to wear, free of toxic metals and ethically sourced. 

    Most importantly is the process in which we make our bars. We do not use a tumbler, in which many, many pieces can be polished and rough edges removed with little effort by putting multiple pendants into a rotating canister with small steel parts or abrasives.  Tumbling does not always remove all of the rough edges, but simply smoothes them down. Furthermore, tumbling can cause micro scratches and wear off the gold in gold filled pieces leading to tarnish. We do NOT do this. Instead, we meticulously use hand tools to individually finish each bar to ensure that each edge is as smooth as possible. We have created a unique process of finishing your pieces without a tumbler, but with multiple hand tools, ensuring that quality is delivered. We believe in good old-fashioned hard work! Your bar necklace will not flake or tarnish as each one is treated with care individually and not mass manufactured.

    The combination of high quality materials we work hard to source, and our unique process of finishing the bars results in necklaces that will last for years to come. We strive to deliver the very best! Mint & Birch also works hard to create unique designs to hand stamp your necklaces with. In fact, some of our designs are even created specifically for us and cannot be found elsewhere!

    These little triangles are handcrafted to order. They have all been hand cut, hand stamped, hand drilled and polished to a shine! Choose from rose gold filled, yellow gold filled or sterling by adding the matching listing to your cart.  Each triangle measures approximately 1.25-2 cm wide on each side. The sides are not all even as this is not an equilateral triangle. These are hand cut, so not every one will be exactly that size, but will be close to it. 

    As always, each order is packaged with care and attention to detail, ready to gift to someone, or as a treat to yourself! We promise you'll enjoy unwrapping this pretty package to find a very cute and classy necklace!
