This is a wonderful necklace, I do love the rough amber...there's something so extraordinary about uncut stones. I'm glad to see them become more available. Have a wonderful weekend!

Old amber is a weakness of mine...I was lucky to get a few strands from my brother who got them for me at a estate sale in the midwest a few years back...Nothing like the old, faceted amber beads...Upon seeing this, I may have to restring them into something a bit more exotic...Best to you this weekend..What boots are you bringing along. ? Cynthia



What an amazing inspiration to put the old compass with the amber!!!! You have captured the beautiful earthy colors of the west and married them to the sepia colors of the compass!!!

Oh, my! I am sorely tempted to snatch it up on Etsy....... I'd better let my heart calm down for a day or two...... Just beautiful! You have the most amazing findings and use them to their best advantage.

I love the necklace. I almost had an antique french one but someone bought it before I could get it.

BTW...I have that same angel statue. I refer to her as my guardian angel...Angelica.

That's exactly the kind of amber I adore and it's very hard to find. You have certainly done it justice-- The compass is so interesting and paired with the amber, it's real jewelry. Brilliant!

Wow, what beautiful pieces. I have always had a passion for compasses(?) and collect them when I can find them. I feel like they will guide me when I am lost in all senses of the word. And the amber has such a magical feel to it. Just so you know your work and your blog inspires me!
Thank you!


I don't know how you can bear to part with it Deryn. The beads are so beautiful.....


Gorgeous!!! Love that antique compass - so beautiful! And those amber beads have me on my knees! They are exquisite! Beautiful necklaces, Deryn!!

Danette Darbonne

Very fine and Iove your Etsy store!

Linda Jensen

I know exactly how you feel. I am a courier for FedEx and I am the worst at directions. It's very frustrating.


Wow, that is one gorgeous piece! I love the Russian compass, it really adds to the charm of the beautiful gem necklace. I love that I'm always rewarded by something truly beautiful when I visit here.
blessings to you,


it's amazing how we can hold on to something for awhile until the right moment. i just made my first necklace. i don't know anything about making jewerly so i am learning basic things. your necklace is stunning.

They're gorgeous Deryn!
