If there was such a thing, our friend Annie would be considered a 'bead whisperer'. She's been making extraordinary beaded jewelry for decades and has traveled the world in search of the rare bead. Some of her rare finds were even donated to the Smithsonian. Annie knows her beads.
So, of course, we took this estate bead necklace right over to her for an opinion. She took them in her hands. Fondled them. Smelled them. Laid them flat and stroked them. 'Oh', she said...'these are wonderful. Feel how smooth they are...no rough edges. Look how natural these are...see the bits of bark and leaves trapped inside?'.
We looked...and yes...there were little trappings of nature caught in the sap of the trees that hardened a gazillion years ago to create this thing called 'Amber'. Annie continued her endorsement...'This has such good energy...you can just feel it.'.
Perhaps Annie's Karma receptors are more honed than ours. All we could do is nod in agreement at her enthusiasm which went on longer for these beads than for any others we've ever brought her. We wish you could have been there...in the presence of our bead guru-goddess.
Since we're just mere mortals, we can only say that this strand of honey-colored amber beads is very beautiful and you do get a sense of the many eons it took to create these beads. The strand measures 22 inches around. The nuggets measure from about 15mm to 25mm. The necklace weighs 50 grams. There's a screw barrel closure. They're in excellent condition. Annie REALLY liked them. And when it comes to beads, we trust her judgment.
