Two necklaces

Two necklaces I made before Christmas. Both are sterling silver and amber. The top one, however, is made with a "reconstituted" amber bead. It's kind of like someone took all the cut-offs from their other amber projects, glued them together in a big lump with amber-colored glue, and then shaped/sanded/polished the bead in to shape. The filled-in cracks look pretty neat-o.

Top one was a commissioned piece, sold shortly before Christmas.
Bottom one was a gift to myself :)

So pretty! So tell me about this commission thing... ;-)

I would love to purchase a necklace like one of these! The bottom one is gorgeous. It will look good with your wardrobe.
