Amber is the resin from an old tree that seeped out as a defense mechanism and caught anything in its path in a little time capsule. It would trap organic materials like bugs, leaves, and even small animals like lizards, or feathers of dinosaurs! It then fossilized over millions of years and hardened to what we know it as today. Humans have been making jewelry and carvings with amber for thousands of years!
Each piece in this collection is handcrafted by Corina Lunita in her little cabin in Washington state. The amber is sourced from stone cutters and mine operators in Chiapas, Mexico.
