Erica bought this lovely amber nugget on her travels and saved it until she could make it into a necklace worthy of this richly hued natural gemstone. There were fortunately no entrapped insects which some people may find off putting. The gold or honey colour is the best known characteristic of amber but other colours like green are also available.

She carefully chose chunky gold foil beads as well as antique gold beads to flank the focal bead. Brown beads of different intensities completed her necklace. The final design is elegant with more than a touch of history in it for amber or fossilized tree resin, is millions of years old.
