This piece of Baltic Cognac Amber reminded me of a traditional old world globe – so I formed the 925 Sterling Silver around it to enhance it whilst not covering its sun spangles. These are tiny flat discs which sparkle when they catch the light. The beautiful sun spangles form when the natural resin is heated to form this perfect sphere.
The Baltic Congac Amber sphere is approximately 14mm in diameter and hangs within a pendant which is approximately 3cm including the bail, and is suspended from a 45cm Belcher chain with bolt ring clasp. All 925 Sterling Silver.
It’s amazing to think that natural Baltic Amber is fossil resin produced by pine trees around 44 million years ago. Traditionally, Amber has been used for a variety of ailments, from teething pain to arthritis.
