Now that wasn't so hard, was it? The only problem now is which silvers to leave off your bracelet. I see a second bracelet in your near future. Smile

Brightonbelle I will have a look around the forum for amber photos tomorrow Smile

Thank you Engel!

Jan - Fortunately I already have 2 bracelet chains and a few locks, but it is hard to split them up at first, I suppose it is just what you get used to always having on!

Thank you LindaJo Razz

You are right that sometimes glass beads has the most spectacular design, but... gemstones could be beautiful too. I think You can add 3 fantastic gemstones to your bracelet !!! Bravo !!!

Why not? Ambers don't need to be orange.
Do you have a local shop to try some ambers?
Just try and then maybe start with a small one on your bracelet.
Personally I prefer stones and ambers to glass too and I like the gemstones on your bracelet.

Your gemstones are beautiful, they really glow! I have just discovered the magic of ambers, they come in an amazing range of colours, including green!

BTW I love your avatar! Very Happy

Thank you PMJ & troll2011

Fleur my local shop has only got one set of amber that has been there for well over a year. I have some good stockists not too far away though so I will plan a visit to have a play. I have been looking at some of the ambers on Macrow this morning, they are all so different but very beautiful.

AquaAura how are you finding the ambers to wear? Thank you I couldn't resist using it as my avatar - It is just so me, magpie is my nickname for obvious reasons Embarassed

I have put some of my ambers with my Chinese silvers - they look very striking! The others are on a cream leather bracelet. I tend to wear them if my clothes are more neutral, as the ambers are very distinctive. I love you

Thank you Hisae Smile

Bowerbird I am not sure... any suggestions? I would like to add a couple more stones to this bracelet I think. I am stalking all the sites I can think of looking for stones Embarassed

Trolldog I don't think I am ever going to be able to stop, there is always something else to lust after. Glad to hear you have a chalcedony on its way to you, mine looked so pretty out in the sunshine today.

Lizziecw you MUST get one, right now Smile do you have a lot of silver? I find silver much easier to play around with, but it feels so good to be out of my troll rut.

This is the most beautiful fling I have ever seen Very Happy

I am totally inspired and must add a couple of beads to my all silver bracelet.

To the think box - which beads would be me? Puzzled

Thank you BusyBeads I love you

Fuzzyfeet it was the silvers that drew me in too (obviously hehe) but the stones, ohhh the stones! Do you still keep a lot of silver in your bracelets?

AquaAura those ambers are TDF Drool having done some very hard research Wink the very rich deep ambers are the ones that tug my heart strings, and the ones that look almost like tortoishell. The mixture of colours on yours is perfect though, do you wear this one much?

Bluesybeads - Thank you, not all flings have such lovely results Razz you should definitely try adding some to your all silver, do you wear any glass or stones at the moment? Like I am sure you have read I found it really hard at first but it is SO worth it. You just have to find the right beads to tempt you in to the unknown cheers

Thank you, Magpie Kate! I love the rich deep ones too! I probably wear this once or twice a week, but I do have few bracelets..... Embarassed
