What an amazing blending of cultures and elements. Smooth butterscotch amber from Africa, paired with water buffalo hand carved bone from Tibet and gold plated hand carved focal beads from Nepal (check out the carved dragon). And crowning it all is this huge light weight organically formed piece of amber. It is bold, it is chunky but it is not heavy (amber is weightless). If you buy one major piece this year, let it be this, I'll never have these elements again.
