About this item: The ancient Maya valued amber as highly as gold for its magical properties. They considered amber to be the great protector of love. Transformed into a contemporary necklace, amber centers a silver choker by Lupita Betancourt. The shape suggests an omnipotent eye. Natural amber is a fossilized resin, and no two pieces are alike in shape and color. Bits of moss and plant life may be seen within droplets of true amber. .925 Sterling silver
About our Artist: Lupita Betancourt has always been fascinated with quartz and gemstones. "I've always liked jewelry. Our task begins with the extraction of amber from its natural environment. It never ceases to amaze me how when we begin to clean and polish the gems by hand, the amber itself permits us to discover its color and shape! It's as though the amber speaks to me through shape and tone to show me the design I should give it--it's all so special! I teach my techniques to the people who work with me, but my best inspiration comes when I've spent time close to nature. Or when I'm doing yoga, design ideas come to mind. In nature, there's not a single flower that is identical to another, or a plant that grows exactly like another no matter how we cut or prune it; the colors are never identical. It's the same way with amber. Each piece is unique and cannot be repeated. My dreams are to create a workshop where we can generate more well-paid jobs."...
