Colors of Amber with Silver Pewter

I really like the orangey-gold color of amber.  This necklace uses amber resin beads that look like they have occlusions.  The focal beads are ceramic in the shape of a parallelogram or trapezoid.  My geometry days are long behind me, so I won't claim absolute accuracy in the naming of this shape.  Each bead was purchased in a different store, since I can never seem to be satisfied in putting together a necklace easily with items all from the same place.  The seed beads have a unique duochrome effect, and are there to help add lightness and flexibility to the necklace.  I'm not big on the heavy chunky necklaces that feel stiff around the neck.
