#7638 An amber collar of large pieces of golden and golden brown amber.
Judith Ubick has traveled the world to collect the rare and unique antiques that she has incorporated into this year's collection. Her one-of-a-kind necklaces, fashioned from a plethora of amazing finds, discovered on her travels include: antique Chinese artifacts of silver and jade, Afghan, Nepalese and Tibetan beads of Turquoise, Lapis, Agate and Serpentine and a unique assortment of both precious and semi-precious beads, some faceted, some hand carved, some set in sterling bezels, all specially chosen for this year's collection.
"Each of the pieces I have collected and incorporated into my own modern heirlooms has a network of people in its history and those people reveal themselves, in part, through their work. I share myself in the same spirit in each piece I create. My values, beliefs and humor; my sense of line, color, style and fantasy, are a part of all my work. I cherish the gifts they represent. During my travels this year, I discovered a glass bead maker in Murano, Italy that was encasing gold and silver leaf in his glass beads. The result was stunning and I brought some home to use in this year's collection. I hope you enjoy the pieces that incorporate these hand made beads - just another sample of the unlimited creative possibilities of the human race."
