    This is clearly Amber embedded into milk glass or white plastic material. The only mark is 925 on the clasp. I have collected antique jewelry for 40 years and have never come across this technique before. Has anyone else seen this before?

      I have not seen the same sort of thing with black resin and gold leaf but amber with that white plastic looks amazing. Are the plastic / glass amber composite material cold to the touch? Nice find btw.

      I would say they are the ambient temp. Thinking about it, I am guessing that the melting point of Amber is much less than glass so I am assuming the Amber must be in 'resin' and then polished off till smooth?

      That is gorgeous! There is an Etsy shop in Ukraine that sells something similar (but not nearly as nice as your bracelet imho)
