When Chronicles Amber offered to send a few of their pieces, I was very eager to see them. It’s quite incredible how they carve the pieces of amber from the inside and their silver pieces are also lovely. I have a blog post from last year here, where you can see some pieces up close. They have an Etsy store and I have also seen pieces for sale on the Moress website as well as at Perlen.
Bead samples were provided by Chronicles Amber.
The little Bunnies in Cabbage are so adorable.
The owl is an older bead, but shows the quality and detail of their silver pieces.
Check out the beautiful Dahlia spacer. This is a bead that is the traditional charm size and fits in easily with other brands. I used some of the round silver balls from Ilko Beads here, as I thought they helped the carved beads to really pop.
Another silver piece that Chronicles Amber sent is called Cherry Blossom. The silver wraps around so there is a small bud at one end. It can be seen on their Etsy Store here.
I’m really happy with this bracelet and how it has different textures. Trees and plants are beginning to grow where I live in Canada and I enjoy the organic look of these beads.
That’s it for today! I hope everyone is doing well, even if you are like us and coping with a third wave of the virus. More than ever, beads are bringing me small bursts of delight and I hope you enjoyed seeing these today. Feel free to leave a comment!
I admire the work of the beads from the Chronicles Amber. I cannot imagine how it is possible to carve such beauty in amber. Cherry Blossom is a very spring bead, beautiful and recognizable. And I really liked that now there is a choice in the Etsy store – spacer or stopper, you can make a very laconic assembly from a Cherry Blossom and 1 suitable stopper.
Hi Elena, I totally agree. They must have very steady hands and excellent fine motor skills!
Thanks for sharing such lovely beads. The textures, colors, and designs are all so amazing and soothing to view. The soft hues bring a zen like calmness to the eye. I love how you put together the bracelet (first picture shown). So pretty.
I looked on their Etsy store website, but don’t know too much about $$$ extra fees for customs and import taxes, and how that affects the price ( shipping to USA). Any input would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I would probably be nail-biting waiting for the unknown extra $$$$ fees to appear. Please tell me it’s not that bad. Thanks!
So I’m in Canada and was not charged extra fees. It came in a small package via the post office. Sorry I can’t help you more than that! When I’ve been dinged with duty/taxes from Ohm Beads, it’s usually been about $20. But again, I’m in Canada. I agree that the colours are very soothing!
Thanks for the input. I guess I just have bead mail phobia when ordering from out of country. If that is a thing. . . . ha ha
Take care and happy Spring!
