    So here is a part of my amber collection.
    I found the art deco amber bracelet a few years ago at a flea market. I bought it from an old lady who had some real treasures for sale for cheap.
    It didn't bring me luck to buy it though: I only wore it once and on that occasion I managed to chip it badly! I had to remove the badly chiped pieces and I restrung it, and now its as good as new.
    But I got afraid to wear it and its been sitting inside a drawer since.
    The simple yellow bracelet is baltic amber I got as a present from my mother.

      Yes I think they get brittle. I have a similar story about chipped edges. Anyone know how to condition amber?

      These bracelets are so lovely! Love your amber w/large focus bead. SO pretty! The yellow from your Mum is beautiful too. I think you should wear them. Life is short.

      Valentino97, I do wear the one I got from my mom. Its the other one I dont really like wearing.
      You can do nothing about amber being so fragile. After all it only has a 2 of 2,5 on Mohs scale . We can only try to be very careful with it.
