Amber is said to be the gold of the North. 50 million years it has been underway, and what we see is a specific moment in time... a ray of sunlight caught in a piece of amber. On this precious bead, a little winged insect (or two) is having a rest.
This video, shows the intricate craftsmanship involved in the creation of these miniature pieces of art.
Of course, each of the "Wings of Amber" is a One-Of-A-Kind bead and they're available at Suzie Q Studio in VERY limited quantities.
Shown in the images below are the amber beads contained in a "Wings of Amber Kit" of nine unique beads, AND they're now available as SINGLE BEADS at Suzie Q Studio!!! ($98)
