This is one of my earliest work I've done in the past. I'm still in love how the faux amber appears in color, shape and to gave it a best natural look with all the cracks inserted.
Amber comes in so many different colorshades from nearly dark brown to an sparkling orange, clear or opaque. My mom found a big piece of natural amber at an beach-walk at the East-coast. My faux comes nearly close to the natural stone and I think it's not my badest work I've done so far ;-))
The last days I was experimenting with wire-working and my first necklace is done. My goal was to embellish each gemstone with wire and am very lucky for the result.
I'm thinking to oxidize the copper to give the coiling a more antique look, maybe I'll wait till it becomes vintage by itself.
This is a night shot with flash and I'll redo tomorrow with daylight.

I did it again. This time I use a fancy jasper coin and for the branch small round carneol beads. I want to use it with gold colored craft wire as I thought the gold would match perfect the stones. That's right.... but it was definately the wrong wire for that work. Too strong and springy, won't stand in the position it should and always trying to spring off of the proceed I was working, arrrgh. Hard for my thumb with holding the thinn strong wire. That coiling thing wasn't so pleasant and I won't go for it with that type of wire again.

It's hard to work over day and at night hard to find a sleep. It would be so perfect with a beach and some water in the near, lol.
Enjoy the summer.... I'll do anyhow :-))
