Amber Makeover by Sara Engberg

Neckpiece
 
Amber is generally associated with craft and organic, natural shapes. It will often be combined with silver and a leather strap, for instance, but rarely with gold or fur. Wearing amber jewellery signals a down-to-earth personality, appreciating natural beauty rather than luxury and bling-bling. In this piece, I have attempted to perform an amber “makeover”, transforming the amber from a craft material to a luxury material by placing it in an extravagant context—cutting it in faceted, diamond-like shapes and combining it with mink fur and gold.
