Working with Amber

With its ancient history as both a fossil and a precious stone, amber hides great secrets. In my work, I love working with amber to create handcrafted jewelry. The stones always surprise and inspire me. Amber is unique, such as nature wanted it to be. Shape, color, texture, tint, and inclusions vary between each piece: the amber in all its beauty of creation.

Beyond my work, I must admit that I am fascinated by this unusual stone with its warmth and translucence Amber even produces a pleasant incense-like aroma while being heated or processed. Both noble and subtle, the personality of each amber stone all depends on design and combination within a piece. Ertisun’s unique handmade jewellery pairs amber with silver, gold, and even copper. When I’m working with amber, I personally prefer using it for earrings, fine pendants, and elegant necklaces combined with iridescent ceramic beads.

Amber also pairs beautifully with lava stone and red coral. Nature combined with yet more nature… Amber is extremely versatile and looks great both polished and raw. The more I learn about the history of amber, the more captivated I become by this extraordinary mineral.
