hand-carved Baltic amber 'fallen leaves' necklace

These colors are always referred to by the artist as the 'fallen leaves palette' - because they truly are, the green, orange, rust, brown, gray and some black take you through the entire cycle of a leaf. Where else to get the best inspiration for creation then from Mother Nature herself! Further enhancing the natural experience, the necklace features a string of real Baltic amber from the 80s, brought by the artist from the actual Baltic region at the time. The are the rarer, darker variety, with beautiful shade variations, further enhanced by the hand-carved plastic focal piece, 100% designed, made and painted by the artist. That piece has very interesting qualities making it both luminescent at a certain angle, and very similar to wood at others. Lightweight and comfortable, it can be made to any length upon request.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
