The radiant yellow amber beads and greenish tinted ceramics really set each other off nicely, it is a very naturally elegant combination.
The necklace is 43 cm long (17 inch)

Baltic amber is one of the oldest Amber in the world (40 million year), is light to wear, and always feels warm to touch. It is the perfect material for jewelry.
Amber is not a stone or mineral, but an organic substance created by the dripping of resin from certain pine trees(conifers of the family Sciadopityaceae), which was fossilized over a period of millions of years. I am using Baltic Amber only, dating back 40 million years.
Amber contains up to 8% of succinic acid. Succinic acid is also termed 'Spirit of amber', which in history was used for rheumatic aches and pains.
Succinic acid is also created as a byproduct of the fermentation of sugar, lending us the typical bitter-salty taste in beers and wines.
It is believed to slowly give off the acid by wearing the amber on the skin, and numb small pains, like teething pains of kids, and rheumatic aches.
