Amber is really interesting to create out of resin because real amber is ancient tree resin. Amber naturally has bubbles, specs of dirt, and sometimes insects. As such, imperfection is perfection.
If you follow me, you've probably noticed I've been making a lot of resin lately. I started mostly because I got some awesome bead molds that I really wanted to try. When the weather finally got resin-friendly I started playing around with my new molds and saw that some of my beads looked a lot like amber gemstones - And I sort of got a little obsessed. I made quite a few batches of amber beads before I was happy with the amber process and now I'm really excited with the result. I decided to leave the jewelry projects for other tutorials and let this one focus on just the beads.
Honestly, they're pretty enough to simply wear one bead on a chain, anyway.
