Playing with Ambers

Post by kyhalfpt on Mon Jun 30, 2014 2:23 am

From the very first amber I brought home, I knew I was in trouble.  The mesmerizing glow and radiance of these beads hypnotizes me....mostly into ignoring the price and focusing on acquisition  Laughing Laughing The recent carved ambers have been even worse and my "little collection" seems to be ever expanding.  Not to mention the delicious walnut ambers that one of our dear trollies parted with so that they could join me in NJ.  I actually haven't worn a bracelet without them since they arrived.  The photos don't capture it, but they have little inclusions that flash gold and bronze and sparkle in the sun   Shocked  Shocked  Shocked 

I haven't had much time for bead play lately, so splurged a little today with my ambers--trying different glass today and took photos as I went--kind of a bead version of who wore it best... My favorite was the all amber in the sun.  If anyone else is playing around, feel free to share photos.  Here's how it went:



And with one of my favorite beads--retired brown bud.  I searched for this bead at a reasonable price for a long time....only ever wanted 2....then come to find out a dealer I shop at had been hoarding several of them in her secret stash...and sold them to me for next to nothing.  Shocked  Shocked  not sure how many I even have now--great bead especially with ambers....

And as far as I am concerned...amber matches every color....and two of my favorites are green & yellow.


Actually thinking a whole combo of banana and amber would be awesome...

I couldn't agree more--they really are the sun!!! The dragon and snake are liana. The rest are TB. The walnuts are amazing. Now, I am glad I was outbid on ebay for all the others I tried to buy--these two are perfect together.

Wow!  I love them both!  Really does look nice with the golden plaid.  And the green is wonderful.  Not sure which one I like best, both are really great!  Thanks so much for sharing!  bounce bounce

Love everyone's amber. Something always gets in front of the amber in my wish list and watching these pictures of yours I am beginning to regret it more than ever. Maybe by winter... I always tend to want to wear amber in winter.
