Recently I discovered I could make another amber bracelet without breaking any of my others up. I love mixing amber colours, sizes, designs and textures, which is a good job as the amber beads that were in my bead box are all different, but I was stunned at how co-ordinated and deliberate this bracelet looks!

It's been a while since I made my Amber and Amethyst bracelet in March, it hasn't changed in 4 months, not even a little tweak!

I now have enough beads to have two full bracelets made up if one is mixed with other beads. Awesome discovery!!
That's with still being able to have my Carved Amber Indulgence Bangle and Fantasy Necklace Set made up from May.

...and there's still 3 stray Amber Beads in my bead box to play with... so by my current reckoning of making something amber up every other month, I'd check back in September to see where these 3 end up?!
Did I mention I *really* love amber beads?!

I would love to have an amber bead with an insect in, but failing that, I want to collect some more of the more opaque light ambers, and I'm always on the look out for unusual shapes!
Are you an amber fan? With or without insects? Pop by & let me know!
P.S. If you've ever wondered how the amber is made into beads...
