Two necklaces I made before Christmas. Both are sterling silver and amber. The top one, however, is made with a “reconstituted” amber bead. It’s kind of like someone took all the cut-offs from their other amber projects, glued them together in a big lump with amber-colored glue, and then shaped/sanded/polished the bead in to shape. The filled-in cracks look pretty neat-o.
Top one was a commissioned piece, sold shortly before Christmas.
Bottom one was a gift to myself 🙂
