Beautiful Amber & Sterling Silver Stud earrings. Size 6/10 inch. Hand made on Saltspring Island, B.C.
Amber was believed to be a powerful talisman by the Vikings. Stories of the magical powers of this fossilised tree resin, washed up on the shores of the Baltic, go back to pre-historic times. The tiny flaws contained within amber are known as inclusions and are evidence of organic matter - some rare specimens containing insects are extremely valuable as most of the world's amber is in the range of 30–90 million years old.
Amber is believed to encourage creativity and encourage a sunny nature, as well as protecting the wearer from negativity.
