Barrel (not Wheel) Ambers?

Post by Beady-Eyed on Wed Nov 02, 2016 12:52 am

I know some of you must have a 'barrel' amber.  If so, how do you combine it?  I've only been able to come up with a few bracelets where I feel a barrel amber actually fits.  Please show your designs!
I wore this today:

What a pretty bracelet and the barrel Amber looks great! You have a very distinctive style Beady- Eyed. I can pick your bracelets out anywhere. I love them!

Another sad collector without one here. Crying or Very sad But I think it would look great as the centrepiece of a necklace -either worn at the bottom of a fantasy necklace or front and centre on a solid chain, with smaller beads on either side.

TB only sold the barrel ambers for a very short time back in 2010 (?) but you can get them from artisans (at least Liana).

Agree That was my first thought, too - to put it as the focal on a necklace. Yours is really gorgeous and looks like it has great depth!

I noticed Liana hasn't posted here in a while, is she still selling beads?

That's a lovely barrel and a beautiful bracelet.
I have a pretty, creamy barrel amber from Liana, bought some years ago.
I found a couple of old photos using it,
