Baltic Amber

My family is Latvian and one thing the country and culture is known for is its Baltic amber.  If you ever have a chance to visit the beautiful country like I did several years ago, you can easily purchase some Baltic jewelry in one of the hundred shops or outdoor stalls selling it.  It's quite inexpensive and I love the different shades it comes in - everything from green to honey to molasses.  Needless to say, I have a ton of it that has been handed down to me or given as a gift...and I'm not complaining.  I'll be posting more images of Latvian jewelry in the coming weeks...
