Juan Garcia handcrafts a pendant necklace. The pendant is a cross made of translucent Mexican amber capped in sterling silver. Its clean lines allow the intrigue of the amber to be showcased.
Natural amber is a fossilized resin, and no two pieces are alike in color and inclusions. Bits of moss and plant life may be seen within droplets of true amber.
