Amber beads

Amber beads from broken necklace. A gift.

Things that need repair are are deemed by many to be clutter, and I tend to agree. Such things linger and provoke sighs, silently berating you for your neglect.  With these beads, I do find them lovely to look at, even as I admit that they “should” be fixed and made into a lovely necklace, and perhaps a bonus bracelet. The original size would be too large for my sensibilities, retiring wallflower that I am.

Amber is by definition fossilized tree resin, so technically as a material it is obsolete:)

Status: Find jeweler who can match the original silk thread that held them together and have them fixed, gosh darn it.
